Harley-Davidson Revival electric-powered motorcycle concept

Currently, electric vehicles are a trend that has been practiced by automotive industry players around the world today. This is also done by motorcycle industry players, and related to electric-powered vehicle products, the legendary American motorcycle brand, Harley-Davidson has also launched its first electric motorcycle called Harley-Davidson LiveWire back in the 2014
The Harley-Davidson Revival concept aims to deliver an electric Harley to appeal to the younger generations and designed by Tanner Van De Veer. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/33O1KEL)
Although it has received a lot of support and positive reviews, so far sales of the Harley-Davidson eco-friendly motorcycle have been less than satisfactory. This is probably because Harley-Davidson is still seen as a premium brand that has a quite expensive price tag for the younger generation. 
The visual appearance of the Harley-Davidson Revival concept adds a fresher impression and instantly recognizable though at kilometers away from one whose seen it. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3lEzGto)
This is compounded by the fact that the Harley-Davidson image is still associated with first-class motorcyclists and the perception that all its motorbike models are large and expensive. In short, some millennials would not choose Harley-Davidson even if they could afford it.

Seeing the unpleasant image attached to those American motorcycle brand, a recent graduate of the Industrial Design program at the University of Cincinnati College of DAAP named Tanner Van De Veer carried out a motorcycle concept design called the Harley-Davidson Revival Concept that might become a solution to the problem.
The futuristic Harley-Davidson Revival concept motorcycle is inspired by the Harley's old-board tracker style blends into a modern eye-catchy appearance so fit for Generation Z tastes. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/33O1KEL)
As quoted from Autoevolution, Harley-Davidson Revival is made with a minimalist design but remains muscular and iconic. The motorcycle concept still uses an electric motor as its powertrain, and has a minimalist and futuristic look. The design itself is inspired by the initial design of Harley-Davidson boardtracker style.
The futuristic Harley-Davidson Revival concept has a tank that is formed of transparent panels to carry a muscular profile echoed with the chunky battery slung below. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/30WTZKD)
The motorcycle also completed with features such as adjustable footpegs, handlebars, genuine leather seats and a few other leather accents, a minimalist instrument cluster and sleek LED headlights. However, the size of the motorbike is now made more smaller and compact than what is currently offering by the Harley-Davidson.
The Harley-Davidson Revival concept looks iconic with a premium touch that can be seen clearly from its accents and material selection. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3lEzGto)
Then to save time in the battery recharging process, this motorcycle is also equipped with an exchangeable battery pack. In addition to the frame, the headlights are also designed to resemble the Harley-Davidson logo, which Van De Veer thought would make this motorcycle instantly recognizable though at kilometers away from one whose seen it. "Despite many changes, the Revival will remain an instantly recognizable Harley-Davidson motorcycle," said the designer.
An industrial vibe carries over to the emphatic swingarm and powertrain forms. Vintage influences include exposed dual shocks. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/30WTZKD)
In our opinion, this electric motorcycle figure is worthy to be considered to enter the line of production of Harley-Davidson motorcycles.😎 Because the motorcycle concept is only a design study of the DAAPworks 2020, it is not surprising if so far there is no sign of the famous American motorcycle manufacturer accepting those design ideas to be realized into its production version.😐

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TANNER VAN DER VEER | AUTOEVOLUTION]

The NAWA, a radically newest electric-powered motorcycle

The very rapid development of technology lately has massively touched the automotive world. This can be seen when the application of an electric motor as the prime mover in a vehicle is no longer a new thing today. It is noted that now the technology has moved a step further with supercapacitor technology as applied by the Italian premium car brand Lamborghini in one of its newest supercar models called Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.
The NAWA Racer Concept is the newest electric-powered motorcycle made by NAWA Technologies in collaboration with the Envisage Group. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/34kPMS1)
The question now is whether the potential technology of this supercapacitor can be applied to a motorcycle? Now the answer is predictable. This technology can be applied to two-wheeled vehicles, this has been done by NAWA Technologies, a French technology company. Actually, this company is not an electric motorcycle manufacturer, but a battery manufacturer. But it seems that they are getting interested in the sexiness of the electric two-wheeler market, and decided to design and build an electric motorcycle.

To realize this goal, the company collaborates with the Envisage Group, an industrial design company known to have worked with Jaguar and several other brands in its latest vehicle developments. The collaboration-resulted motorcycle comes with a very futuristic design, and one highlight is a hubless rear wheel, which is then given cool touches including the wrap-around LED taillight and duck-tailed seat.
2020 NAWA Racer Concept uses a 9kWh electric motor and featured a lithium battery combined with NAWACap. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2GnfbT1)
This motorcycle later is known as the NAWA Racer looks inspired by the cafe-racer design which carries the best technology which significantly boosts performance and can mark a significant step forward for the performance of an electric motorcycle or the performance potential of anything that needs batteries for motive power, including electric cars.

This French company adds a supercapacitor to this motorcycle (which is internally referred to as an ultracapacitor under the brand of NAWACap). In short, this technology is almost the same as a battery, except that it can be charged in seconds, and can then dump that charge at an extremely high rate. And it can be used over and over again without substantial performance loss. The motorbike is designed to have a lightweight thanks to the application of this carbon fiber frame using a 9kWh electric motor.

The power source itself is taken from a lithium battery combined with NAWACap. The presence of this combination makes the NAWA Racer the first electric motorcycle in the world to use hybrid technology in its battery system. The hybrid technology on the NAWA Racer is able to recharge up to 80% more power during braking. The fact, the café racer-styled motorbike which weighs 150 kg is able to accelerate to the top speed of 160 kph.

The top speed is created thanks to the ability of the NAWA battery which has a power of 98 hp. This motorbike can also move as far as 289 km with a full battery condition. From a stop or during hard acceleration. NAWA claims the racer can go 0-60 in about three seconds with a top speed of about 100 miles an hour and also improved power-to-weight ratio also helps in performance metrics and improves handling.
The NAWA Racer has been showcased last January at the CES 2020 event in Las Vegas. Still not known, whether the NAWA Racer will be produced and marketed in the near future?

A retro look German-made electric powered scooter

The German automotive company named 'Kumpan electric' is released the latest model of the electric scooter. Interestingly, this new electric scooter has a similar appearance to Vespa, an Italian scooter. When it first appeared, Kumpan 54 series only the Inspire and Iconic variants were available. The scooter powered by a 3 kW electric motor with a maximum speed of 45 kph, while the maximum coverage is up to 186 km.
The German-made Kumpan 54 Series electric powered scooter has four variants, namely Inspire, Iconic, Ignite, and Impulse. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/33DV4aT)
Due to its speed is not much fast, so You are not required to have a driving license to take it running on the road (of Europe). But the company is well aware, not everyone wants to make their daily transportation at such a slow pace.

As a result, the Ignite and Impulse variants were created to fulfill the demands of a part of the consumer. There is no difference, but of course, its electric motor capacity is experienced a significant increase in specifications.
The Kumpan 54 'Inspire' variant uses powered by a 3 kW electric motor with a maximum speed of 45 kph. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3kttJ1Q)
For example, the Ignite variant electric motor capable of producing 7 kW (9.4 hp) - 8.4 kW (11.3 hp) at its peak power. It is also able to go up to 100 kph, that's pretty good for a compact scooter, the battery still relies on the same type. There're two lithium-ion packages are stored in the back of the trunk, each with a capacity of 1.5 kWh. And if at any time you want to extend the mileage, there is one more battery space available.
The Kumpan 54 'Iconic' variant as one of the early models of the 54 Series powered by a similar 3 kW electric motor of its sibling Inspire variant. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2EblxEb)
By having three batteries are activated, Kumpan claims its e-scooter can run 80-110 km (combination). Depending on the weather conditions, riding style, to the rider's body size, it's not as impressive as its other variant. But even that distance was enough to get around the city. Meanwhile, the Impulse variant, whose more moderate, this scooter is not too slow and also not as excessive as the Ignite variant.
While the Kumpan 54 'Ignite' variant uses a more powerful of 7 kW - 8.4 kW electric motor with a maximum speed of 100 kph. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2EblxEb)
The electric motor throws a maximum power of 4 kW (5 hp) and touches a top speed of 70 kph. The batteries are the same, but if all three are installed, the resulting mileage extends from 100-120 km. The Ignite and Impulse batteries can be removed easily and the charging mechanism does need to be removed, the charging time for both are the same, all takes 4 hours. Not only environmentally friendly and fast, but there were also a variety of advanced features that are incorporated into these two scooter variants.
And for the Kumpan 54 'Impulse' variant uses a little bit low of 4 kW electric motor than its sibling Ignite variant with a maximum speed of 75 kph. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3iNoWIs)
Most impressively, they have cruise control features. Well, which scooter has this kind of technology? Even the conventional scooter types are only in the expensive flagship series. It is no exaggeration to call it the most sophisticated for the middle-class scooter. The scooter is featured with four driving modes: Sport, Comfort, Eco, and Rain. Just adjust the path that will be passing through and to activate it can be done from your handgrip.
The German-made Kumpan 54 Series e-scooter has a 7-inch digital screen right on the center of its handlebar that lets you connect to your gadget, automatically all information is copied on the cellphone screen. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3iNoWIs)
On the handlebars, there is a 7-inch digital screen that lets you connect to your gadget, automatically all information is copied on the cellphone screen. Ranging from the speed, the remaining mileage, power consumption, and all things related to the scooter are neatly recorded on the screen and on the device, including the location of the scooter and navigation. If at any time the scooter is lost or is being borrowed, in real-time the owner can monitor the location points, as well as the driving behavior of those who wear them.
Furthermore, the Kumpan 54 Series e-scooter has three 1,5kWh lithium-ion battery slots in its compact compartment under the saddle and claimed if all three batteries activated, the scooter will run as far as 80-110 km. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3iNoWIs)
Next talking about appearance, the entire line-up of the Kumpan e-scooter is identical, but it's a bit difficult not to say the inspiration came from the Piaggio's Vespa. Because many body panels from the facade to the rear are similar, maybe because the retro theme that is carried is already synonymous with the iconic scooter from Italy.
The whole body is rounded. The façade is decorated with a large shield, along with a unique designed inverted triangle lamp, the headlight does not use mica, the light comes directly from the LED projector with a small, minimalist DRL, but high-tasted accents.

This Kumpan e-scooter is sold from €5,847 or around Rp.102 million. Meanwhile, its Ignite variant is offered in a little bit high priced of €6,822, or around Rp.119 million.

The latest Husqvarna e-scooter will be born in India

Recently, scooters have begun to become a trend in several countries. This can be seen with the widespread use of scooters, especially Vespa and several other Japanese and European brands. This seems to make a Swedish motorcycle brand, Husqvarna since last year has been preparing to present a new electric-powered scooter which is scheduled to be launched in 2021.
Husqvarna E-01 electric powered scooter will be entering the European market as the main target shortly after launched in 2021. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3iMuy5m)
As reported by Rushlane, the electric scooter made by the Swedish manufacturer will be named Husqvarna E-01 which is also said to be entering the European scooter market as its main target next year. That's the information obtained from a leaked internal document that explains the short-term plans of KTM and Husqvarna.
Husqvarna E-01 is likely built based on the Bajaj Chetak's platform and used a 4 kW electric motor as its drivetrain. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3iMuy5m)
It is clear that the company is preparing to build a strong presence in the affordable electric two-wheeler segment. Furthermore, Husqvarna plans two electric-powered two-wheeled vehicle models in the next two years and both will be produced in India.

According to those leaked documents, the Husqvarna and Bajaj are working together to present the Husqvarna-branded electric scooter named E-01 and an electric motorcycle called E-Pilen which is currently under development. For those who don't know, Bajaj Auto holds 48% of KTM's stakes which in turn owns the Husqvarna brand.
Husqvarna E-01, a classic look electric powered scooter may opt to offer a higher capasity battery pack for an increase range. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2H22Mnz)
The Husqvarna E-01 (as it is known today) will be built from the Bajaj Chetak platform. This is a classic look scooter driven by an electric motor of 4 kW (5.4 hp) and 16 Nm of torque connected to a 3 kWh battery. This electric vehicle is equivalent to a 50 cc scooter, the company originally also intended to launch a 10 kW model (with a power similar to 125 cc), but for now it seems that it has been ruled out.

Well, as it is well known, that the e-scooter being developed by the Indian manufacturer uses a 4 kW motor so that it becomes a worthy platform that could be adopted by the latest Husqvarna scooter. Furthermore, the Indian electric powered scooter equipped with modern connectivity features which are expected also to be embedded in the Husqvarna E-01 scooter.
The Husqvarna-branded electric scooter named E-01 and an electric motorcycle called E-Pilen will be made in collaboration the Husqvarna and Bajaj in the near future. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/33yewFZ)
Still quoted from Rushlane, Husqvarna may opt to offer a higher capacity battery pack for an increased range. The Chetak has a claimed range of 95 km. The top speed is a little over 60 kph. Even though the e-scooter is manufacture in India, it does not mean that the Husqvarna E-01 will be sold in the domestic market. However, looking at the future of the premium electric scooter segment in India is quite promising and it would not be wrong for Husqvarna to hope to become one of the most successful new entrants.

Yamaha initiated a water-powered motorcycle concept

Yamaha is a brand owned by a Japanese manufacturing giant company. Yes, the manufacturer has a big name in the world's motor vehicle industry and various kinds of technological innovations have been carried out by it.
Yamaha XT500 H2O Edition Concept, a water-powered motorcycle concept designed by Maxime Lefebvre in collaboration with Yamaha Design Team. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/31YHoq4)
And this time the Iwata-based company collaborated with Maxime Lefebvre, a two-wheeled vehicle designer to present a water-powered motorcycle design concept called the Yamaha XT500 H2O Edition.

This futuristic motorcycle design concept has a body inspired by the old school model of Yamaha XT500. As quoted from Blogo, the two of them collaborated on the design of the revolutionary water-powered motorcycle concept.
Yamaha XT500 H2O Edition Concept has a body inspired by the old school model of Yamaha XT500 that was built from 1975 to 1981. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/31YHoq4)
When you look at the appearance of the Yamaha XT500 H2O Edition's body clearly inspired by the iconic Yamaha XT 500 Enduro motorcycles that were built from 1975 to 1981. However, it has a very significant difference. If the offroader motorcycle variant which uses the 21" in the front tires and 18" for the rear have a very noisy sound, but the XT500 H2O concept motorcycle looks more environmentally friendly without any noise.
Yamaha XT500 H2O Edition Concept is fitted with a water engine that is powered by a water pump that cycles water through. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/31YHoq4)
Of course, this is not surprising due to the H2O uses the electric power from the battery to drive the water pump. By using high water pressure like the jet principle will be sprayed through the injector to rotate the propeller at the wheel hub.
Yamaha XT500 H2O Edition Concept is environmentally friendly and economical for potential owners if it will ever see production form. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/31YHoq4)
One of the ideas for making this water-powered motorbike is to create an ecological and economical motor model. So far the concept cannot be further explored and concluded nothing about the engine, power, and other features.
But it turns out that the futuristic motorcycle concept that has been made since 2016 and still stuck on the design papers and also there is no information that states Yamaha to be built this futuristic eco-friendly motorbike. Nonetheless, if this concept motorbike gets onto the production line it will likely take longer until 2025 at the latest.
