Hardly a week goes by without an email from some new company making an electric motorcycle, but this one caught our attention because it is made of leather, wood and metal.
Like many of the electric motorcycles being produced, it’s an urban-based mahicne, not much bigger than a bicycle and weighing just 32kg.
It’s made by a Barcelona-based studio called Rocsie. Barcelona is a well-known centre for industrial design such as the famous Barcelona chair.
Rocsie visual content managerXavi Coll says their e-motorbike is made “entirely out of wood, metal and leather”.
“We make the frame with wood not because of the price of other materials, but because our beech laminated wood is super resistant,” Xai says.
“It’s also an organic material which matches with our philosophy of trying to use the less oil derivatives possible. ”
“We are launching a crowdfunding campaign by January 26th to sell as many units as we can, so we can continue producing them, thus we are currently creating community around for us to gain some visibility,” Xavi says.
