Last year Ian put out his rendering of the Kickboxer concept bike based around Subaru’s boxer engine. Thinking economically, Ian has come up with a more compact and efficient motor to base the project around, and we all know how tunable turbo diesel motors are! Can you say propane injection?!
The orange rendering is the standard diesel model which he has put some great work into. The design and aesthetics here are amazing. All the bits and pieces are very well thought out and flow together beautifully! The blue rendering is the two wheel drive model! Yes, 2wd! Where do I place my order?!
From Ian: For those who are interested. I’ve been wanting to put Subaru’s diesel engine in the Kickboxer ever since I finished the design. The diesel engine is more compact than it’s gasoline counterpart, and the idea of a powerful engine that affords great fuel economy really appealed to me. Making the engine fit was relatively easy, but I also decided to differentiate the Diesel bike from the original with new bodywork, swingarms, and a different turbo layout.
For those interested, here is a link to the original Boxer Concept bike
