Belarusian and Ukrainian designers Artem Smirnov and Vladimir Panchenko are long-time followers of the ancient Japanese cultural tradition known in the world as the 7 aesthetic principles of Zen. This unique philosophy is manifested in Japan literally in everything – in art, architecture, furniture, music, food and many other things. Artem and Vladimir embodied it in the concept of a motorcycle, although their main specialty is automobile design.
Principles of Zen: simplicity and removal of confusion; dynamically developing balanced asymmetry; naturalness and lack of pretense; subtlety; freedom from routine or pattern; tension of calmness and restrained severity.
In the Samurai concept bike, simple straight lines contrast with bends more characteristic of Italian models. Delicate bends and folds give the motorcycle a sense of solidity and lightness.
The overall picture is complemented by graceful strokes in the form of an aerodynamic wing covering the plug, a flat instrument panel built into the triple clamp and ergonomics, controlled by the push of a button, with which the landing and comfort change. However, it is better to see than to represent by reading the description.
