Richard told Elektrek he wanted to make electric motorcycles more efficient by improving the aerodynamics.
“The overall conclusion is that motorcycles are pretty poor aerodynamically. Improving the aerodynamics is perhaps the best opportunity to reduce the battery pack size while maintaining good highway range and higher speed riding,” he says.
However, it doesn;’t seem very “mororcycle-ishj” withn what l;ooks like a steering wheel.
Enclosed motorcycles are not new. The BMW C1 scooter had a roof and companies as diverse as Yamaha, Toyota and AKO have plans for enclosed leaning two- and three-wheelers.
The driving force (pun intended) for these designs is to make riding safer and more accessible to more people.
