TARDIGRADE SURVIVOR FROM OUTER SPACE
2020 – Introducing the Tardigrade, the world's first moon concept motorcycle. Inspired by future and past adventures to orbit, Andrey Fabishevsky visualized a lunar concept motorcycle back in 2020. An exploration vision that we wanted to realize from the technical site. With this project, a tough journey began.
Tardigrade – They have been found everywhere in Earth's biosphere. From mountaintops to the deep sea and mud volcanoes, and from tropical rainforests to the Antarctic. Tardigrades are among the most resilient animals known, with individual species able to survive extreme conditions of any kind. Tardigrades are true survivors who have also endured the rigors of outer space.
THERE ARE NO LIMITS TO THE IMAGINATION. IN 2021 WE WANT TO PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF WHAT IS POSSIBLE EVEN FURTHER – OFF TO NEW HORIZONS
Simultaneously, it is a symbol for the disentanglement of the mind. And for empowerment. The entire project ignores borders - those of countries, continents, role stereotypes and the status quo.
READY TO TAKE THE CHALLENGE
The Tardigrade Motorcycle is build to explore the moon’s surface and beyond. The passenger can carry different types of equipment and with a speed limit of 15km/h (9 mph) it has a battery range for almost 110km. A combination of ultra lightweight materials and changeable airless tire pieces allows the Space-Crew to tackle any obstacle on its mission. It was a vision with hurdles. But we proofed it.

BEHIND THE SCENES – FROM A CUSTOM WORKSHOP TO A TEAM OF ENGINEERS
Imagine a fantastic team where everyone works together towards the same goal. This team is like a well-oiled machine, with each person bringing their unique skills to the table. Their secret? A shared vision that keeps them focused and determined, making every success a team success.

THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS AND PARTNERS
It takes a multinational team of professional dreamers to bring the vision of an individual creative to reality. Everyone involved wanted to move into the same direction. Borders, language, origin didn't matter, because the same dream was shared - building something that brings us one step closer to moon, even though it's just a "motorcycle".
