An Electric Motorcycle with Classic Style

If we talk about electric motorcycles, probably the thing  will crossed on your mind is those motorbike should has a futuristic shape and blazingly fast. But, there's nothing wrong if the electric motorcycles are made in a classic style and could be appeared in cool and unique shape.

Through the creative and skillful hands of Bruno Forcella who dismissed the notion that electric-powered vehicles should have a futuristic design. As quoted from BBC Autos on Tuesday, September 29, 2015, he has developed an electric motorcycle with old-school chopper style.

Here are several pictures of SineCycle. (All pictures taken from: http://bbc.in/1FD2flb)

Bruno Forcella is a former electrical engineer from Switzerland. He called his electric motorcycle with the name 'SineCycle' and built on a hardtail frame called "The Heist" by US-based Cleveland Cyclewerks, the bike is a customiser’s dream project.

The electric motorcycle is made with a low handlebar position. Additionally, SineCycle equipped with 21-inch front wheels and 18-inch on rear. A handmade saddle, modified fender and faux fuel tank also adorn this electric motorcycle. These electric motorcycle then painted in Mercedes silver color.

The SineCycle is a one-off for the moment, and not yet street-legal, it driven by a 2.8 kWh permanent magnet motor from Zero Motorcycles. And then those power transmitted to the rear wheels via direct belt drive. Forcella lists the top speed as 75 mph or 120 km/h, but a range of only 35 miles or 56 km makes for a very short joyride.
At least, Forcella has proven that modification of motor vehicle not only to pollute the environment. In fact, the motorcycle modification can also be more loving environment with the birth of SineCycles, an electric motorcycle with old-school chooper style. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SINECYCLES | BBC]
