Indian Gorilla V4 – Bike Of The Future

Posted in Automotive,Just Cool by Joe Colburn on the April 28th, 2012

I’m a fan of classic curves on cars, but I love sleek new concepts just as much, so when I found the Indian Gorilla V4 in my email this week, my jaw dropped.

Indian Gorilla V4

What is the Indian Gorilla V4?

Designer Vasilatos Ianis from Oradea, Bihor, Romania offers us his vision of old school flavor with sexy futuristic style. Sporting 32-inch tires and hubless wheels, it reminds me a lot of the TRON light bike. In their own words, here’s what Local Motors says about the Indian Gorilla V4:

a legend for many motorcycle enthusiasts, designers and riders. This was the driving force designing the Indian Gorilla V4. The idea includes both technical soltions taken from the rich history of Indian motorcycles and new and futuristic solutions that defines the concept. The american retro style look of the 60′s, Gorilla V4 is a combination of a muscular bike with delicate detailing like the old look instrumentations placed on both handgrips. The motorcycle is powered by a massive V4 engine covered with panels and old fashion style ventilation grilles, numbered cylinders, big exhaust pipes, sporty driving possition, 32 inch tires, hubless wheels, large amount of chrome parts and external tubular frame structure. Indian Gorilla V4 is the dream bike for a dream ride.

Where Can I Get One?

It’s exciting in concept, but not available for purchase… yet. Loyal readers may remember the Local Motors Factory Tour I shared with you last summer. During my visit, I was able to see several Rally Fighters in various stages of the build process. If all goes well, that’s the future of the Indian Gorilla V4.

Local Motors provides a community-based approach that allows regular people to participate in the concept, design, engineering, etc. to create the world’s next automobile. When all the details are in place, they take pre-orders and ready one of their micro-factories for builds. Those who purchased can then build the bike themselves in the factory. Though they don’t come cheap, the experience is worth the cost for those who can afford it.

Without ever seeing a rider in position it's hard to know how realistic this concept even is. From the looks of it your legs would be stretched straight forward and your torso would be bent way over on the bike in order to grab those very forward handle bars, in essence, riding in the 'can I touch my toes position'. A position that doesn't seem like any kind of pleasant rider experience.  I'm guessing an actual model complete with rider at any scale has never been made of this bike as I think that would flush out the potentially impossible ergonomics at work here. I also wonder how steering is going to feel since the forks are swept to almost 60dgs from vertical. Not to mention there is no ground clearance to speak of. Are there any springs/shocks? Might be one extremely stiff ride. Looks beautiful on paper, but I don't think it's terribly realistic as a ride-able bike.

That is definitely a very futuristic concept. It did remind me of Tron too at first. I wonder though how a bike with almost zero ground clearance will ply public roads, where there are speedbumps or potholes.
