concept electric motorcycle WAYRA EV-03
The concept electric motorcycle WAYRA EV-03 by Spanish designer Pablo Baranoff Dorn suggests a set of spread-out lights throughout its frame to help riders pass through foggy conditions on the road. Dorn says manufacturers should consider installing a ring of LED covered with glass that allows the light to be diffused, avoiding any visual blindness to the driver. Such an approach can allow a bright illumination towards any incoming vehicles, objects, or people toward the riders. The designer says he wanted his motorcycle design to have a very visible light to balance out its robust, fat-bike frame. Acting as the motorcycle’s insignia, Dorn also imagines the front LED with a W sign to offer the motorbike its deserved signature.
For designboom, Dorn submits that the WAYRA EV-03 mirrors a visualization of an electric cruiser, one that reflects the styles and tendencies soaked in by motorcycle brands across the world. Elements such as exhaust pipe length, frame construction, and engine shape sizes underline the distinctive look of WAYRA EV-03, which Dorn says are made for enthusiasts who desire to transition to a cleaner-looking, minimalist era while still blending it with the designs of the previous eras. ‘It is not just a 3D concept with a dramatic look or disproportion style, but it is a custom old and new bike where technology is added. Modern touches here and there are combined with the old style,’ he submits for designboom.

Featuring an independent hub station
Dorn has two color variations for his concept electric motorcycle: one is covered in matte black while the other has red lines and edges with touches of silver. ‘I felt that the red and silver over the black matte foundation were lovely. It is designed in a way that avoids decals,’ he submits for designboom. He also shares with us that the curved body of the frame anchors the tank and that the lines that follow the shape of the frame are doused in red as they direct towards the central logo which lies below the tank.
Touching upon its battery elements, Dorn envisions a plug inserted into the battery to act as an independent hub station and charge any USB device. With this, the design seems to ask for a battery that can be charged in any electric charging station and a replaceable one to offer ease of maintenance and extend the life of the concept electric motorcyle. Another feature that Dorn wants to add is the spacious compartments for WAYRA EV-03, an element that he has been pondering on. He wanted an e-bike that could offer this without adding non-necessary accessories, and the designer felt he could work on that with WAYRA EV-03, tailored to a specific group of clients.

A dedicated app for WAYRA EV-03
Embracing the past in the present means that Dorn conceptualizes his electric motorcycle with an onboard display in a retro-digit typeface. The interactive screen will offer GPS navigation, and he shares that a feature that can lull manufacturers and clients alike into producing and using his concept is by developing a dedicated app that can help the riders throughout their journey and that covers the bases the riders need such as best routes, battery health, and weather conditions.
Pablo Baranoff Dorn reveals it took him quite a few years to fully produce the visualization for his concept electric motorcycle and a lot of coffee to down. He also reminisces his father’s contribution to his work by writing that ‘he was wise enough to lend me a tip, and this tip became the soul of the cruiser’s name, an emblem that gives solidity and respect to a bike that can hold its style like a good fashion model.’
