A manufacturer from India has Electric Bikes Manufacturers put together an electric motorcycle design that it claims is good for a 500-km range.It will have belt drive, a steel trellis frame, radial-mount Brembo 320 mm front brakes, fully adjustable Ohlins fork and a choice of Showa rear shock, or Ohlins shock at extra cost.com.
However, Mankame is at least taking the first steps, which is more than we see many other manufacturers doing publicly.That all sounds good, but for now, the bike is only at the design stage.
The results will be interesting, as many tech-happy motorcycle consumers are a bit leery of crowdfunded projects, thanks to the Skully fiasco (which is supposedly working out now).
No charge time has been listed. Curb weight is a claimed 396 lb. Mankame is getting its figures from laboratory testing and design work, and we haven’t seen an independently-tested prototype yet..Find more details at mankamemotors.
The Indian manufacturer is currently planning to raise funds for the project through IndieGoGo, like every other proper 21st-century startup. And, even if the bike is built, it’s another thing to make it to market in serious numbers. ABS and traction control systems (designed in-house) will be standard
