DA Voltra3

Sketches by Dan Anderson (c)2009

The design process of the OMX bike should start with a list of contemporary motorcycle designers as well as a kind of "mood board" of images that might help us define what we are looking for.

Designers we likeEdit


Dan Anderson of Sydney, Australia has designed a bike called the Voltra. Not only does it look good but it has some very interesting ideas. Including a naked swingarm and the way he uses the battery pack and motor case as stressed, structural elements.


David Sánchez of Bott Power in Valencia

Pablo González de Chaves of Chaves Garages has a nice looking TTXGP skech on his blog


Michael Czysz in Portland, Oregon. Design engineer of the E1PC which probably would have won the TTXGP 2009* if he had had an extra week of testing.
