‘Halo’ is an Indian designer’s Electric alternative to a KTM 390

Pranav Naik, a final year automotive design student of the National Institute of Design Gandhinagar has presented renders of an electric motorcycle in GT and Cafe Racer guises.

On the inspiration:

I did the bike’s design in two weeks. I didn’t think about the powertrain but where the technology is moving, it had to be electric. I’m a movie buff and I wanted to make a tribute to the café racer culture, especially in America. I used to watch movies of Marlon Brando and other famous cultural icons. This is also a tribute to Marlon Brando’s movie, The Wild One, in which he rides the Thunderbird and how they have shown motorcycling as a culture. I wanted to make a modern rendition of the café racer and that’s what the Halo project is.

On the Design:

I thought of using a blend of modern and retro feeling to it. So it has a retro-futuristic styling. I thought of making multiple versions of it. It has a stance of a traditional café racer but it has a versatile purpose too. I have made a GT version of it and also a normal naked version. The grey motorcycle in the pictures is the GT version with a windscreen and we can add more accessories to it like saddle bags. The yellow and white are the naked street versions. I didn’t consider any brand for my inspiration.


I would say it would be an entry-level premium, for example like KTM RC390 kind-of power output. That was the idea.
