View all 5 Photos

Launching at the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne on March 12, 2015, this motorcycle is one of Yamaha’s latest ventures. The motorcycle is the largest piece in Yamaha’s Project AH A MAY, an experiment in realizing motorcycles envisioned by musical instrument designers and musical-makers by motorcycle builders. Designed by Kazuki Kashiwase, the √ Root motorbike references the square root mathematical function and, more concretely, the form of a horse. The mechanical steed features a dark brown wood and leather seat that extends over the headlight, eliminating the dials and connecting the rider to the scenery. Take a closer look at the innovative motorcycle in this video, published on Youtube.

Davide

Davide was born and raised in the tiny Piemonte town of Biella, world-famous for its textiles and the hometown of Michaelangelo Pistoletto. A life-long passion for design and innovation led Davide to New York City, where he lives with his family. He created Gessato in 2006, and he's been pioneering new communication tools and techniques ever since.
