Savic Motorcycles will make 49 C-Series cafe racer electric motorcycles available from November in three variants.
That’s much cheaper than the Harley-Davidson LiveWire electric motorcycle which launched last month in Portland, Orgeon, at about $US30,000 ($A44,000). It will be available in Australia late next year. Pricing is yet to be confirmed.
Savic Motorcycles unveiled its electric cafe racer prototype at the Melbourne Moto Expo last November and the bikes are now available for order.
“When I was 14, I decided I wanted to design and build my own vehicles one day. So I did my engineering degree and when I graduated about three years ago I got stuck into it. It’s been a long time coming.
“These motorcycles are a unique offering with the most advanced features and functionality that the materials, engineering, electronic controls, electrical technology and 3D printing can offer today.
“We have created a unique design featuring a perfectly rolled (not bent) backbone frame and developed our own powertrain package.”
