Josh Probst, 22 years and student industrial design at the University of Houston designed and built MAYA, an electric motorcycle for his thesis project.
Josh: “Maya stands for the most advanced yet adaptable. The design of my bike is about it’s patten pending modular frame. Rather than all motorcycles where the frame is built around the technology (engine, motors, batteries), Maya’s frame is designed as a single bent line that allows different aesthetics and technology to be easily attached to the frame.
This allows Maya to never become obsolete because it is able to update its aesthetics and technology with the change of times. So no more junkyards of rusting motorcycles and one frame that can have an infinite amount of design possibilities.”
The entire bike was built in 3 months, says Josh …
Josh is currently a senior at the University of Houston, Industrial program. He is learning how to design and fabricate products from concept to complete prototype.
