We have all seen amazing concept bikes created by Industrial Designers that never see the light of day. They are created on the computer and spend the rest of their days in the pixel world. Well, this Fiv0 concept was designed by Gregory Thüne who is trying to take it into the next stage — production. We asked Greg a couple of questions about this stunning bike and we cross our fingers and hope it does manage to do a "reverse Tron" and make the jump from pixels to the real world.
Can you tell us a little about yourself and your background?
I'm a professional Industrial Designer (Canadian by birth) working with Astro Studios in San Francisco — I studied ID in the 90s with the thought of designing my own motorcycle, then really dove into researching the "hows" and "whys" behind designing a functional bike from the ground up in the early 2000s while designing toys, consumer products, electronics and the like, cause you know... a man has got to eat.
