This impressive Fuller Moto 2029, seen yesterday at the GOMA Motorcycle exhibition in Brisbane, is an electric-powered motorcycle inspired by the past and designed for the future.

While the aluminium body mirrors that of the Majestic motorcycle of 90 years ago, the clear polycarbonate wheels and titanium parts produced by Computer Assisted Design (CAD) and 3-D printing technology, and the innovative hub-centre steering, make this very much a 21st century vehicle of the future.

Unseen under the bodywork is the electric motor of a Zero electric motorcycle, flipped upside down to work with the low profile of this machine.

With its unconventional style and innovative build techniques, the 2029 asks us to think differently about design, and provides us a glimpse into what may be to come in a new age of customs. Below is a video which gives a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Fuller Moto’s futuristic 2029.

The Motorcycle – Design, Art, Desire exhibition is on at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art until the 26th of April, 2021
