The market for electric motorcycles is gradually developing with new references that integrate the offer already offered by empirical brands such as Harley-Davidson. However, if you prefer to encourage new start-ups it is certainly towards manufacturers such as Evoke, which has just lifted the veil on its Evoke 6061.
It is neither more nor less than an electric bike whose particularity is to recharge to 100% in less than 15 minutes. A revolution in the industry.
The first electric Cruiser motorcycle
When we think of electric cars, the first idea that comes to mind is logically electric cars. However, electric motorcycles, although marginal, are more and more found on our roads.
Various references exist. Some from eastern countries. Others from across the Atlantic. All these motorcycles have in common the fact that they have a battery that gives them a certain range on the road. And the Evoke 6061 is no exception to the rule. It is a Chinese manufacturer, based in Beijing.
The Evoke 6061 on the characteristics side
The Pekingese therefore introduced the first liquid-cooled engine, in the first fast-charging electric motorcycle. The Evoke 6061 has a very insolent 120 kW electric motor. That is to say 161 gross race horses, on the road. As a result, the Evoke 6061 outperforms the competition.
However, the main specificity of this motorcycle is its battery. With a capacity of 24.8 kWh, it offers above-average range. It must be said that we are still entitled to 3 kWh more than the most sustainable machine currently available on the market.
In addition speed side we are entitled to no less than 230 km / h. Where the fastest competitor reaches 177 km / h.
Charging the Evoke 6061 takes 15 minutes flat. To achieve this, Evoque had to develop a new DC rapid charging system. On condition of connecting the motorcycle to a current of 125 kWh, everything is settled in 15 minutes at most.
