Hello, my name is Robert and I am a Sophmore studying Aerospace Engineering at The University of Alabama in Huntsville. I modeled a futuristic electric superbike that would be used for high-speed, recreational activities. It has a streamlined design that partially encapsulates the rider, while maintaining a low profile to maximize efficiency and speed. In addition, the superbike is designed to only run on ultra-smooth, glass-like surfaces, as its wheel covers and large turning radius are only effective in this environment. The electric motor lies at the center of the bike and can be seen from the outside through the glass panels on either side of the bodywork, and through a system of shafts and gears it rotates the rear wheel. Finally, key elements of the bike have been illuminated to make it look cool. Also, as the superbike is set in a dark environment, the lights create interesting reflections that could not be achieved in a lighter setting.

I designed this Electric Superbike as a result of a final design that I had for my CAD class at UAH. This is the first time I have ever used Solid Edge or Keyshot, and I am excited that I have gained such a valuable skill, that will hopefully better my career to come. I found designing, drawing, and rendering this bike to be one of the most fun experiences that I have had in college yet. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
