Industrial designer and motorcycle enthusiast Tom Hylton wanted those who have lost a limb to enjoy one of his passions.

“The bike and the prosthetic communicate with each other and the rider to calculate appropriate lean angles and aid body positioning, it will also eject with the rider in the event of an accident. It Is modular to suit trans-humeral and trans-radial amputees and I’m currently designing a leg to go with,” said its creator, Tom Hylton.
