In the ever-evolving world of motorcycle design, Frank Stephenson, known for his work with prestigious car brands such as Ferrari, McLaren and Maserati, has introduced a new motorcycle concept, the FSD 59. Developed by Frank Stephenson Design (FSD), this concept represents an innovative approach to motorcycle design.

Aerodynamics meets design

The design of the FSD 59 is characterized by a uniform fairing that extends from the handlebars to the front of the seat.  Particular attention is paid to the transparent elements above the tank area, which can be removed at will.  According to FSD, the design aims to minimize drag and maximize speed, although the integration of the rider into this concept is not explicitly explained.

Another feature of the FSD 59 is its adaptability.  The design allows seats, handlebars, footrests and the angle of the windscreen to be adjusted to individual preferences, highlighting the versatility of the motorcycle.

 

The step towards electromobility

In line with the trend towards electromobility, the FSD 59 is powered by an electric motor.  The battery is an integral part of the chassis, an idea already seen in other concepts such as an electric sports motorcycle from CFMoto, which uses the battery as a supporting element of the frame.  This design contributes to the lightweight construction and agility of the motorcycle.

A special feature of the FSD 59 is the introduction of a head-up display (HUD) with augmented reality (AR), an innovation in the motorcycle sector.  Although details on the functionality of this feature were not specified, FSD emphasizes the practical applicability of the prototype in real-life scenarios, which has yet to be proven

 

Presentation and outlook

The FSD 59 concept was presented to the public at the Geneva Motor Show and has been attracting attention ever since.  Frank Stephenson, the creative mind behind the design, was optimistic about the future of the project: “Our team has been working hard behind the scenes to present this to the world and we are very excited to share it.  We look forward to announcing more news about it in the future.”

Stephenson, whose career has been largely defined by his contributions to supercar design, is now bringing his expertise to the world of two-wheelers. 

 

Summary

Frank Stephenson’s FSD 59 is an example of how advanced design and technology could redefine motorcycling.  Combining aerodynamic efficiency, adaptability and electric propulsion, this concept shows the direction motorcycles could take in the future.  The integration of augmented reality into the riding experience also underlines the innovative nature of the FSD 59 and makes it an exciting glimpse into the possible future of two-wheel technology.
