The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design has been giving out their Good Design Award since 1950; the update to the 59-year-old accolade is the Green Good Design Award, intended to "emphasize the importance of sustainable design and to develop a public awareness program to the international general public about which companies are doing the best job in sustainable design for our world environments."
Florida-based Robrady Design has just racked up a GGDA for their Vectrix Electric Super Bike, a zero-emissions piece of bad-assery that also got nods from the people at Red Dot and IDEA.
The Vectrix Superbike...features state-of-the-art clean technology--a motor and batteries instead of an engine, fuel tank, etc.--appointed as a result of an engineering roundtable with various design and manufacturing partners.
The ensuing mechanicals required ROBRADY to repackage the designâ€š without compromising the bold flavor that drove the rMOTO concept. And the zero-emission, high-performance Vectrix Superbike makes quite a statement: It celebrates its clean electric power by pushing aesthetic boundaries pertaining to green vehicle design.
