If Audi Made Motorcycles

As much as we wish they did, Audi doesn’t make a moto (unless you consider the fact that they own Ducati)… but if they did, you can be sure it’d have a flat torque curve, and silently creep across red lines! Just like this concept: the Audi R1 e-tron.

Truth be told, I didn’t love it until I saw it up against some other members of the Audi fleet. As time went on, it began to look like a natural addition to the family, albeit a smaller one. Aesthetically, the shape is quite similar to other e-bikes, but it’s the details set it apart. Side body flares, a barely-there cowl-less seat, ultra-thin instrument cluster panel, three tiered front lighting, and side lights that change with the driving mode. What stands out the most, however, is a colored monocoque frame that seems to keep that big battery’d body in tact.
