Although Mark built Alpha himself he actually had very little to do with the initial design. While surfing Facebook one day, Mark saw a picture his father had posted to his page, a rendering called Alpha. Mark was captivated, being a salt flats fanatic his whole life, Mark loved the look of Alpha’s absolutely unique speed racer look, stirring up his inner engineer. The concepts Mark saw on Facebook came all the way from Istanbul, Turkey from an Industrial Designer by day and designer of futuristic motorcycle renderings by night, Mehmet Doruk Erdem. Mehmet’s work is some of the best looking renderings you will ever see, hitting a level of creativity that only dreams are made of. Mehmet’s original renderings of Alpha were a hit in of themselves, circulating the internet rapidly, displaying a futuristic dream bike that would likely be nothing more than a gorgeous poster of possibilities, not realities. That certainly would be the case if a guy like Mark didn’t exist.
