Hello Everybody, today I would like to introduce you to the world of motorsport, and while it may not be Pod-Racing, I still find this form of sport exciting. It is MotoGP, where the top motorcycle manufacturers battle it out on the racetracks of the world. It is the pinnacle of the sport and has the best riders in the world competing. One particular team is the Suzuki Ecstar Racing Team who re-entered the championship last year with a re-engineered bike and made a big impact! The new season started last weekend in Qatar and their quest for a title begins again. I have liked their road bikes for a while now so here is my tribute to their racing machines, this is Speeder – Suzuki…
These top of the range racing machines are beautiful and sleek and full of technology, just like a lightsaber, so I attempted to recreate one. To begin I used an emitter that has a similar appearance to the front mud guard and wheel fairing. Next along is the switch section which lends itself very well to the look I was going for. The switch I used to form the fuel tank and the cut-outs on the switch look just like radiator air intakes. The rider’s seat is represented by the body and leather grip section (with Suzuki blue leather!). The FTE pommel stands in quite nicely as the exhaust pipes of the 1000cc engine machines and has a fiery orange Kyber Crystal glowing inside. To wrap up the design, the saber come with a gorgeous Suzuki Ecstar Racing blue coloured powder coat (actually called Translucent Blue by Saberforge)and matching yellow trim.
Now, as with the Sports themed hilts and Football/Ice Hockey/NFL etc I will have tributes to some of the other teams including Yamaha, Honda and Ducati. But as always the finishing line is in sight and this race is nearly over. However I’d like to say thanks to you all for looking in today and invite you to come back and check out the new stuff I have coming in future posts. Till next time.
