A lot of vehicles are inspired by cheetahs, jaguars, leopards, even the stallion. However, the Yamaha Nazo chooses to look at the gorilla instead. The Nazo’s frame does great justice to the gorilla’s form, with the frontal leaning posture and the heavy forearm inspired front fork.
Inspired by musculature, this concept evokes a fluidic sculpture from the upper and lower sections intertwined together. The whole body is made up of materials that stretch and contract just like your muscles do and enables steering without any kind of assistive apparatus. When turning a corner, the entire body relaxes so that it can smoothly corner, and when accelerating, it contracts to form a rigid body.
