Motorbikes in an architectural magazine will naturally raise questions about what the connection between these seemingly unrelated fields is. But with motorbikes, just as in architecture, it is also the concept that matters.
If you give it some thought, you could easily come to the conclusion that there are philosophical similarities between at least some prominent tenets of architecture and our Ehinger (Krafträder) motorbikes: the key ideas here would be clean lines, reducing the design to its essentials and optimal use of (engine) space. This also explains to some extent why we call our machines motorbikes: because they do not try to coyly hide but proudly show what makes a motorbike in our eyes – one concept, two wheels and one engine. OK, plus a seat and handlebars to enjoy what motorbikes are made for – riding. And that is also the refreshing difference from architecture.
