Electric Racer

If given a free hand and will, designer Maarten Timmer hopes to recreate bike-racing magic with an Electrical Powered Motorcycle! Don’t be so lofty and hear his plans out. This is what the VertiGO features: electric propulsion, low noise and emissions, a silent motor, high torque, very fast acceleration, maximum speed on the straights (100 to 150 km ride on a “battery pack”).

“The Vertigo differs drastically in technology. You have an electric motor instead of a combustion and the energy storage is different (battery packs instead of a fuel tank). The powertrain so different from a regular model, has its impact on the design. The design / styling of the bodywork is inextricably linked with the technology. Cases such as wheelbase and overall ergonomics of a race engine are crystallized in recent decades and have proven (almost) optimal. It is also my opinion, wise to the development step by step to implement, since the motor world guarded in of change. “

    Now I’d drive that.

    you lost me at low noise. speed is nice in all but i love my carbureted 72 cb750 because it shakes, its loud and smells like oil and gasoline. 3000 lb cars witch rarely carry a full load are the real culprits.

    anyhow, beautify bike regardless. i love how the gas tank turns into the saddle. and that cut out! you could never get that kind of extreme form when designing around a gas tank. i would sell it on its formal simplicity and beauty not its low noise or whatever.

    Its a nice concept,but theres a few concerns, i would love to see a cross section of the components on how theyre fitted in there, especially the power cells/batteries and drive train.

    the weight looks a little heavy to the front, electric motors are high in torque and unless theres electronic traction control or some sort of the ecu control on the power band its gonna be low on traction on the rear leaving the wheels spinning.

    When I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and now whenever a comment is added I recieve 4
    emails with the same comment. Is there an easy method you can remove me
    from that service? Appreciate it!
