After the Saline Airstream that came to life a few days ago, here is another example of a compressed air motorcycle that actually runs.

On February 6, we presented what was then just a concept of eco-friendly motorcycle.
Created by Dean Benstead from RMIT University it won the Melbourne Design Awards in 2010.

Take a motocross geometry that comes from a 250cc Yamaha WR250R provided by Yamaha Australia (that explains the logos) a Di Pietro engine, a scuba tank and here is the result, a speed of 140kph, recharge in two minutes and no notion of obsolescence and life cycle as for the batteries! Compressed air, the future of clean mobility?
