In the heart of the country, a city known for its Orange produce is all set to be known for having the first Batpod inspired vehicle being built in the city. We have undertaken this massive task of building this Batpod inspired bike, we like to call it, Project Lincoln- Azrael. Following the same spirit, “Let’s build it full size”.
The dream was started 3 years back, and through several modifications, ups and downs later, these guys have come close to realizing this dream. The bike is almost complete with the testing going on, and soon expecting a release of their test ride. The bike stands at 3 feet tall and 8 feet wide, sporting two 195mm 17” tires. The vehicle is set to derive power from a Pulsar 220cc FI engine which was salvaged from a bike wreck. The interesting thing to note about this vehicle is that it is completely built of second hand parts, and no stock parts have been used. A 100% custom designed vehicle from these engineering minds.
Another notable fact is that there are just 5 replicas of this Batpod worldwide; and what sets us guys apart from them too is, we didn’t replicate it, the title of our attempt is ‘Project Lincoln: Reinventing the Batpod’ and from the pictures it is pretty much visible that we did make some re-engineering to it. The project is head by Abhijeet Khandagale (about.me/abhijeetkhan) and the designs were made by Ankit, the lead designer who is now studying at Academy of Arts, San Fransisco, CA and Zina Dk who is from Tunisia. The rest team was 12 member huge, who came in at various phases of the project.
