Electric motorcycles are slowly becoming the heart of the motorcycle industry, mainly for its going green initiative and the convenience it brings to riders. From Zero Motorcycles to Curtiss Motorcycles, a new Finnish company is joining the bandwagon on its take of electric bikes.
RMK has introduced a new electric motorcycle prototype E2, which comes with a hub-less rear-motor wheel. The performance of the bike is undeniably powerful with an electronically limited top speed of 160 km/h (100 mph).
With its high speed and high power, the E2 is capable of 200-300 km (124-248 mi) of range, depending on the model selected. The bike features a 50 kW (67 hp) motor that is capable of producing 320 Nm (236 ft-lbs) of torque.
What stands out for the bike is its hub-less rear wheel.
“The bike itself is a child of a naked sportbike and wide handlebar Harley-Davidson kind of bike. It looks like its a sportbike, but it is not,” said Teemu Saukkio, who designed and patented the bike for RMK.
RMK plans on a producing around 150 vehicles per year over 2019 and will increase it for 2020. Saukkio has also set sights on a new E3 as well but details of such is scarce.
