On the site of the Irbit motorcycle factory, a presentation of new development appeared – a motorcycle with an electric drive. It will be made based on the existing drive with one wheel driver. You can lift the batteries for 13 hours by connecting to a home power supply network, using a 115 V. adapter The maximum test speed was 140 km / h, although the company advised not to repeat the experiment and does not accelerate more than 105 km / h.
According to the project manager, Jason Re, everyone is happy with the results and experience. It's curious that the machine was only a few tens of kilograms with an electron radiator: the Ural-Electro dry weight is 373 kg. "It is not at all difficult to control it because of its small center of gravity and optimal weight distribution. It does not have a co-worker. And it's accelerated very quickly for the" Ural " "Generally, there is general transport that can be used almost as much as car," said makers.
Have a motorcycle tested in these conditions – in the snow, in the rain, in the cold, in the heat, on highways and city roads.
However, at present there are no plans for the production of a serial of an electric motorcycle of the IMZ. And where the first public display of electrical Ural will be the Rising Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, California: between 16 and 18 November.
