It is nearly as if the Bike Gods speak through Mehmet Doruk Erdem’s work. If you have viewed any of Erdem’s tailor made models prior to, they’re very best explained as otherworldly, bordering on celestial. Erdem has a tendency to visualize types and surfaces very contrary to any other designer, creating fashionable monsters in its place of motorcycles. Each individual of his customized BMW bikes have a unique persona and options a entrance-significant style that practically looks like the torso of a jungle cat leaping to its unassuming prey. Seat your self on best and you almost experience like He-Man driving his majestic and ferocious Battle Cat (a a little outdated however totally perfect analogy).
The Phantom is a person of Erdem’s additional recent is effective, surfacing on his portfolio page just a several times prior. Created using the BMW S1000RR superbike as its foundation, the Phantom builds on the sinister attraction of the bike, amplifying it to almost a ‘cyberpunk executioner’ degree. The bike arrives with a crouching stance, sticking to the floor as considerably as attainable. There’s barely any floor clearance on the front, but most of Erdem’s bikes fall within the ‘salt flats racer’ classification, producing it a non-situation, really. The bicycle comes with some amazing panel-perform that appears to be Cybertruck-esque, with its edgy angular design and style. Developed a lot more in the vein of a going sculpture than a generation bike, the Phantom doesn’t really sport a dashboard, rear-see mirrors, or even a seat! However, for what it lacks in functional particulars, it undoubtedly tends to make up with its bold, brutish layout!
