While working towards his 2004 design degree at the Royal College of the Arts in London, Finnish student Heikki Naulapaa designed the Aprilia Magnet for maximum riding sensation.
"I wanted to create a vehicle, which offers a new kind of emotional experience while riding," said Naulapaa. The Magnet, despite its 550cc engine, performs like a 1000cc motorcycle thanks to its aerodynamic profile and its namesake electric motors in each wheel (which incorporate magnets).
Naulapaa describes the Magnet as a low-emission hybrid vehicle.
