Although there has been very little information offered on this superbike powered by compressed air, this monster will surely catch the attention of the public, and not only due to its green features, but also because of a very nice design.

The name of this extreme motorcycle is Saline Bird and its authors are members of a team called Les Triplettes de Bonneville.

It is worth mentioning that the team is composed of five members: Charles-Edouard Berche, Ugo Spagnolo , Adrien Fuinesl, Frederic Dobbelstein and Jean-Philippe Paries.

Their goal was to develop an eco-friendly bike that would boast an eye-catchy design and several green features.

The team decided to use a twin compressed air tanks to power their Saline Bird. Thus developers hope their bike breaks the land speed record.

Saline Bird has an aerodynamic design. It tends to obtain the ideal balance between aerodynamics and center of gravity, thus gaining more stability on the road.

It would also be interesting to note that the frame of the bike is made of carbon fiber.
