Jaw Dropping Air Powered Beast – The Saline Bird
Air-powered motorcycles may not be the newest toy on the block, but there has never been one as fast, as impressive or as groundbreaking as the Saline Bird.
Powered by a compressed air engine provided by MDI, combined with 3 gas cylinders with total capacity of 27 liters, the Saline Bird was created for the Les Triplettes de Bonneville speed record event.
Designed by five Frenchmen Charles-Edouard Berche, Ugo Spagnolo , Adrien Fuinesl, Frédéric Dobbelstein and Jean-Philippe Paries, the Saline Bird is not just about lightning speed, but incredible aesthetic design along with a dose of green technology. Optional leather body panels only add to the sleek, modernized finish.
The bike is currently being designed in two different models: one as a normal motorcycle and one for extremely high-speed, record-setting performance. Either way, however, the Saline Bird is a wake-up call to anyone who has ever argued that fossil fuel-free automobiles can’t measure up to their oil-dependent brethren.
On a side note, maybe they could do something about those air tanks being so close to my boys…I would hate for something to backfire.
