Electric Racing Concept Motorcycle. Gorgeous.

German born Andre Frederico has an interesting profile and philosophy. With a Diploma Degree at the Academy of Art & Industrial Design and a Degree in Industrial Design (from materials science to deformation technology to shape cutting and machining), he is convinced that the cost of racing can be significantly reduced and that a motorcycle is “the perfect medium in communicating new technologies.”

And to prove it he imagined this very beautiful concept motorcycle powered by four electric motors with the intention to rival any conventionally powered   on the race track…and Bonneville. Named AER, this motorcycle is conceived to provide a total of 143.5 KW of power with all battery fitted together in the center in “an engine block” for correct weight distribution. The battery packs might either use lithium-air technology or zinc-air technology. One smaller electric engine (same weight than a conventional brake system) would make it possible to recuperate a big amount of braking energy. Gorgeous looks and promising electric concept. Andre Look.

    one speed like an electric lawn mower?
    how does it do in the rain?
    do you charge it up or does it just start off the battery and the motors make it run?

    it’s to shocking to understand with out an better example as to how it works

    Do a web search for Electric motorcycle lots of info !!!

    I heard that a new world record was set in Ohio about a week ago. It was for an electric bike racing in the 1/4 mile. Something like 7.79 seconds at over 160mph. And the guys who did it deserve every bit of recognition they can get from doing this feat. Congratulations!

    Looks like an electric razor

    Radical design….technology of future friends.

    That is an interesting concept, currently I am calculating and designing an electric motorcycle with built-in wind-turbine. I never thought of using more then one engine for power. This significantly reduces your driving radius I assume. How do you plan to overcome the difference in rpm per engine, with even 4, the power efficiency with be negatively influenced I think?

    All these electric bikes of sorts are interesting but everytime I hear its the future I just wonder how many amongst us thinks electricity, as someone said, thinks it just comes from the wall” is the long term answer. Outside of nuclear power sources that are few worldwide and have tremendous waste storage issues and other issues, most electric power is sourced from plants that need a hydrocarbon fuel basis to generate power not so different than your autos/bikes,

    Yes there is hydro and wind but on such a small scale and costly to expand and/or replace the present power grid power source in my or maybe even my kids lifetime. All these supply an antiquated supply grid here in the US that is overloaded now and with ever increasing electric demands will be expierencing more brown-outs and power shortages as electric usage increases. Go figure.

    Drill baby drill, here domestically, till a long term solution for a long range power source is efficent and proficent, practical and economical such as maybe a hydrogen based power source just as an example and leave the rides alone as the contributing amount is minimal in affect or non impacting in the big picture.

    World Wide Forest Fires and Volcano Eruptions year in year out have far more affect on the environment then any hydrocarbon horror hyped, think gas or diesel vehicles I or you own.
