My concept for an “Ecomoto” is an air powered motorbike that will replace today’s popular sport bikes in the future. The sport bike runs solely on compressed air and emits zero pollutants. It utilizes the power of the nine chamber, aluminum air engine which was designed by Angelo Di Pietro. In theory, my design will reach speeds suitable for both urban and rural road use. This newly developed technology also has the potential to compete in track- based race events with speeds in excess of 200km/hr.
