A Killer-Looking Electric Cafe Racer
Savic Motorcycles is based in Australia, and I don’t know if they’re plans for the company to come to the U.S. but I hope so. It has one of the coolest electric motorcycles I’ve seen yet. I’m a sucker for cafe racer styling and this bike does a good job of tickling my fancy.
The bike is the C-Series. The company has three different versions the Alpha, Delta, and Omega. The bike has some retro styling in what is very obviously a modern bike. The vehicle features a brown leather seat, chrome polished tank and seat cowl, Brembo brakes, and an 8-inch TFT dash. The bike comes with different ride modes, traction control, and regenerative braking.
The frame is a single backbone, tubular design with a single-sided swingarm. Overall, this thing has a stylish, classy, minimalist design. The only contrasting elements from a styling standpoint are the front mudguard and odd-looking headlight. I’d like to see something sleeker and finished here.
Now, on to specs. The bike has a range of 124 miles and takes four-hours to charge from 20 to 80 percent. The electric motor makes 80 hp and 133 lb-ft of torque. It can do 0-62 mph in just 3.5 seconds. Those numbers are for the Alpha version of the motorcycle. The Delta is the same bike but puts out 53.6 hp and has a range of 93 miles with a three-hour charge time. The Omega version is the same bike but only puts out 33.5 hp and has a range of 75 miles with a two-hour charge time.
These are Harley-Davidson LiveWire rivaling numbers. If they’re accurate they will be something to consider for much less money. the price sits at $12,990 (Australian) for the Omega (about $8,776 USD), $16,990 (Australian) for the Delta (about $11,478 USD), and $23,990 for the Alpha (about $16,209 USD).
