IKEA and motorcycles may not be synonymous, as the former is known for their ready-to-assemble furniture, kitchen appliances as well as home accessories. However, if the company did offer a DIY electric motorcycle kit, the finished product would probably look something like the Polestar SLR. This bike boasts minimal ground clearance and a basic suspension, since its designer, Arthur Martins, says that it doesn’t need a racing setup for street riding.
The Polestar SLR sports a minimalistic, yet unconventional design, that seamlessly blends the wheels as well as body together. Boasting a seat located flush against the frame and a battery indicator up front. Need to recharge? Simply the seat forward. There’s no touchscreen display or traditional speedometer, as it’s built directly into the left handlebar. Its headlamp and taillamp are basically edge-lit transparent bars, while air intakes near the rear wheel finish off the smooth look.
