Two motorbike concepts for riding on the Moon and Mars

Two separate concepts by designers Andrew Fabishevskiy and Simon Grytten try to envision a new transportation solution for future missions to the Moon and Mars.

How are we gonna move around on the Moon and Mars when Nasa’s and Elon Musk’s expedition will have established new space colonies? Why with a motorbike, of course! That’s at least the futuristic and appealing idea of two different designers, who came up with two concepts designs for two promising versions of a space-bike. 
Andrew Fabishevskiy’s electric “LMV v1” bike is designed to be lightweight and easy to be transported as payload on a future Lunar mission.

The all-terrain wheels with pivoting suspensions would make it easier to drive around the Moon’s uneven terrain, while mylar foil protects the battery compartment and other components. 

Simon Grytten’s Mars rover-bike, instead, is not just a “simple” space cafe-racer: when plugged into its base station, the bike lifts up to use one of the wheels as a wind turbine, taking advantage of the many storms happening on the Red Planet’s surface.
