Electronic speedster has wooden body

The French automobile manufacturer, Newron Motors, is introducing a high-end electric motorcycle that has a unique feature: a body fashioned almost entirely from wood!

Available in a choice of ebony, oak, red cedar and white ash, the “steam punk” motorcycle is fully customisable, allowing customers to opt for foot-rests, a passenger seat, and other specifications.

Newron is partnering with French software firm, Dassault Systems, and has planned to build 12 bikes in 2020.

Its lithium-ion battery can be fully charged in as little as 40 minutes. The bike is capable of going to 96 km per hour in just 3 seconds, and has a top speed of 210 km per hour.

The bike is highly intelligent, allowing riders to input their destination and the motorcycle will use power most efficiently to get them there. If the battery gets low mid-route, the bike’s intelligence will assist in throttling back, helping complete the intended route.

An accompanying app allows drivers to check battery level and other settings.

The bike is designed with speed and sustainability in mind. Wheels feature ultra-light carbon rims for increased agility.

A fully charged battery can last for around 200 km. It will be available, at around US$ 67,000, beginning in 2021.
