Colorado’s Zaiser Motors says it’s working on the Zaiser Electrocycle, a unique twin-hub-powered electric motorcycle that is safe, stylish, and sustainable. Zaiser emphasizes sustainability, the right to repair, and safety. By doing so, it has distinct advantages over any electric motorcycles currently being produced.
Designed in a retro line, the motorcycle stands out with its tail-style rear part. The bike looks huge, with a long wheelbase and expansive bench seat.
At this stage, Zaiser does not communicate the power of the bike’s engines. Nevertheless, the young manufacturer claims the engine sends enough power to both wheels to achieve 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprints in the 3.6-second range and a top speed of 120 mph (193 km/h).
The Zaiser Electrocycle has a 17.5 kWh battery pack that offers a whopping 300 miles (483 km) of range per charge. Its interchangeable battery units prevent premature obsolescence and ease any charging anxiety as the batteries are removable and can be charged at home. The electric motorcycle will support regenerative braking – as if fast-charging and interchangeable batteries weren’t enough.
By making use of existing safety systems, years of electric motor innovations, and aerospace-quality composites for safety, speed, and style, the state-of-the-art Electrocycle is the safest and most rider-oriented electric motorcycle available. Some of the new features on the company’s flagship Electrocycle include proximity sensors, wearable interconnectivity, and a roadside assistance system. Besides, Zaiser Motors aims to be able to recycle most (if not all) of its components within the first ten years of production.
The Electrocycle is currently the subject of a fundraising campaign on the Wefunder platform. Its target price is between $20-25,000, with deliveries slated to begin in 2023.
