Eco concepts more and more confidently enter into the life of modern people – eco building, eco cars, and now – eco motorcycles. The presence of an electric motor for motorcycles is nothing new but the concept of the motorcycle we will show today – is not just electric motorcycle. “Zero Moto” – is a concept of eco all-while drive motorcycle with electric motors placed in the front and rear wheels and on-board processor for the control of torque. First of all you will notice an unusual, futuristic design of the concept developed by designer Wes Rhoad. The inspiration for such a design was the Art Deco Steam Locomotives. We’ve previously written about another concept of motorcycle – ARX 3 designed in a similar style.
Zero Moto has a very low center of gravity due to the low placement of the batteries providing power to electric motors. Hubs and wheels have an unusual design which allows to turn wheels towards each other to decrease the turning radius with the normal speed and rotate in one direction to change the strip at high speeds. According to the designer expected maximum speed of motorcycle is about 90mph and operating range – 200 kilometers. Zero Moto is not just an unusual bike, like a sprinter it gains 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds.
