Roskva Electric Design Motorbike to be unveiled on July 7June 29, 2012 by: Nishant Panwar
Tired of hike in the petrol prices? Afraid of buying sports bike just because of the fuel prices rising day by day? Well, Norway has the perfect solution for it, an Electric motorbike, unbelievable but true. Norway has designed a bike that would run on electricity rather than high octane fuel. It was a project undertaken by five engineering students at the University of life sciences in Oslo.
The Norwegian designed Roskva Electric motorbike is set to be brought in front of the entire world on 7th of July, joining the league of the other electronic motorbikes like ‘Brammo’ and ‘Zero’.
The Roskva Electric Design motorbike is the next generation bike evolved out the future minds. The bike will attract many young and speed lover minds throughout the country as well as the world. And the eco-friendly nature of the bike is definitely going to get a Go Green symbol from the entire world.
Talking about the technical stuff, the body weighs less than 25 kg (55lbs), is built around monocoque carbon fiber frame and all the bits are bolted to it are designed in such a manner that the bike is light and energy efficient. The carbon fiber style can be seen in other components too and moreover, swing arm and the drive system are also fashioned out of league.
The bike gets its power from two electric motors which give a combined power output of 94 hp. The power is drawn from a 6kWh battery pack which gives the bike a maximum range of 100km i.e. 62 miles.
Now the first question that rises inside every speed lovers’ mind is the Top Speed and obviously the makers of the bike know that compromises with the speed certainly cannot be done. Yes, it’s true, the bike has done no compromises with the speed, giving it a top speed of 180 km/h matching its flamboyant sporty look.
The rulers of the electronic bike market ‘Brammo’ and ‘Zero’ will certainly face a stiff competition once the Norwegian Electric Monster is unleashed in the market.
