No, it’s not a new “The Lord Of The Rings” movie but the latest smart mobility concept from Alegre Design. This company is an international design firm (located in Valencia, Spain) providing innovative products, services and experiences to people and business based on Agile Design and Design Thinking.
After an in-depth study of the smart mobility industry, this team was confronted with a new opportunity: they identified the need to create a more unified platform for a diverse transportation system. Many motorcycle manufacturing companies are entering the electric market but they do it while maintaining traditional procedures and concepts.
System One is based on an existing philosophy used by the automotive sector. One platform for multiple vehicles. The platform consists of chassis, batteries, motor and electronics. What changes are the surfaces and parts the user is in contact with: storage spaces, seating, protection, screens, ergonomics and any other components that is not a part of the structure.
System One brings many advantages for manufacturers, because one platform gives them the opportunity to access different markets with the same product. They can, also, have a more streamlined manufacturing and post manufacturing process because the maintenance for the bikes is simplified, and there’s less investment in new product componentes which, in turn, helps companies meet their sustainability goals as less raw materials and resources are needed.
“For twenty years we have brought added value to different markets and industries, facing new challenges on a daily basis. Our job as designers is to anticipate what people need and what they will need in the future, no matter where they are.”
As an alternative, Alegre Design has defined three different motorcycle options that can be created from one platform: Young, Professional and Adventure. Each one has been designed to find a middle ground with a different user, so that each of them feels that their needs are being taken care of, without overloading them with unnecessary accessories.
Each option offers a unique riding experience through changes in the layout, geometry and weight distribution.
System One enables users to create an emotional bond with their light EV by allowing them to customize and adapt it to their personal needs. This revolutionary system transforms the EV from a simple mode of transportation into an extension of the user’s identity, creating a deep sense of ownership and attachment.
- System One Young has a minimalistic style, simple, elegant, yet fun, that can be customized to reflect the user’s personality.
- System One Professional is designed for users who need an EV for their work, to delivery cargo or to transport materials and goods.
- Finally, System One Adventure is a different adaptation for experienced riders who are seeking enjoyment from their EV, with a new sense of freedom.
With just a few adjustments and customization options, you can take the same core technology and transform it into the motorcycle of your dreams. It’s a true testament to the power of innovation and design.
