The artist and designer Christopher Paris Lacson had the wonderful idea of combining bamboo and electric propulsion to create a motorcycle called Banatti Green Falcon.
Lacson decided to use bamboo because once treated and structured in two laminated layers covered in epoxy resin, it acquires a resistance similar to that of steel, although with much less weight.
The entire bodywork of the Banatti Green Falcon, including the main body, the seat and the housing for the digital dashboard, it weighs only 6,5 kg. That volume, according to its creator, is less than having done the same work in fiberglass.
The propulsion of this unique motorcycle is an electric motor that allows it to reach a maximum speed of 120 km/h, although it is electronically limited to 96 km / h to achieve a autonomy of 50 kilometers.
