French design firm Barbara Custom Motorcycles has envisioned what motorcycles might look like in the near future, specifically for brands, Husqvarna, BMW and Triumph.

Essentially producing concepts that merge fantasy with reality, the bikes undoubtedly exude a sci-fi influence with their sleek and slightly elongated profiles. The Husqvarna “Ampulex Compressa” appears to draw inspiration from the Lotus C-01, while the Triumph “Black Matter” motorcycle perfectly coordinates with the film Blade Runner.

Finally, both BMW concepts are defined by pointed tails, while emphasizing a clean, minimalist aesthetic. Overall, these renderings serve most as an indication of what manufacturers might hope to offer in the not-so-distant future.
