You may know Aprilia as a motorcycle company that specializes in large sport bikes, made for winding through roads and gaining speed. However, this Italian company actually started off in the world of wheels by manufacturing bicycles. Before it made the transition to designing these large fast motorcycles, Aprilia specialized in scooters and small motorcycles. These designs were known for their power and ability to maneuver well and handle easily and responsively through twists and turns.
The experts at Harley Davidson took into account the popular sport bike models that are produced by Aprilia when rendering a car model could have easily come from the company’s manufacturer. In a fun twist on the company’s standard road motorcycle models, this rendering shows an off-road vehicle. While Aprilia is not known for off-road bikes, it is possible the company would dabble into this category if it were to design a car. This small two-seater looks like it was built for speed and danger, with an exposed frame and light bar. Whether you want maneuverability on the road or the ability to rush up and down sand dunes in the dessert, this hypothetical car looks like it could give you the best of both worlds.

The company’s motorcycles are known for style, comfort and classic feels, so the experts rendered a car that fits the design to a tee. This hot rod features a classic design that is obviously inspired by many Harley Davidson cruisers out on the market right now. The shape of the windshield is one part of the vehicle that is directly related to the company’s motorcycle design.
The exposed pipes and engine components give it a gritty feel that any gearhead is sure to love. The large engine and comfortable, laid-back seating are also congruent with the cruiser-style bikes Harley is known for producing.

The model was produced from 1959 to 1983, 1985 to 1988 and again from 2001 to the present day. The name was derived from the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, the location for many speed breaking attempts by gutsy motorcycle riders.
