Aprilia Kerkennah motorbike was a concept supermotard
created by Italian designer Donato Cannatello in conjunction
with Aprilia. The unusual Kerkennah name takes after a
small desert island located off the coast of Tunisia.
The Aprilia Kerkennah was designed with commercial materials
in mind, no carbon or titanium, instead sturdy aluminum,
steel, and magnesium.
Apart from the single cylinder engine, all of the Aprilia
Kerkennah has been designed with alternative solutions
in mind. It is a concept technologically avant-garde,
but not revolutionary. The most dominating characteristics
of the Kerkennah is the location of the radiator behind
the engine, and the seat-tank unit which can be lifted
up and forward in order to access the engine and mechanical
elements from the top.
