At the 2015 Milan Design Week Mazda has taken the wraps of its new Bike by KODO concept. The Bike by KODO Concept embodies the ‘less is more’ philosophy of Japanese art and design, reimagining the modern racing bicycle. Mazda craftsmen distilled its frame’s design to its purest form evoking lightness, agility and speed. Bike by KODO concept is a track racer that seeks to express the innate beauty of the bicycle. Its minimalist structure is composed of the least possible number of parts. The frame was painstakingly formed by hammering a single sheet of steel and the black leather saddle is hand-stitched, featuring the same red thread and stitch design as the all-new Mazda MX-5. The bicycle’s mixture of dynamism and allure is evocative of the Mazda MX-5’s styling.
The new Mazda Bike by KODO concept it’s on display at the newly opened Mazda Design Space in the Brera design district.
