About

The prototype at MPG
The prototype at MPG

 Trully one of kind EMUS, is the Tesla of racebikes. Like the mythical electric car, the EMUS uses the battery as the core of its structure. This uncompromised design gives the vehicle performances comparable to the greatest race motorcycles. It has race ready specifications including ajustable suspensions, an agressive riding position and a powerful 200HP motor.The performances will certainly be outstanding with an expected top speed of 225km/h and a 12kWh battery, allowing a racing range of 45km

Our intention is to attend eMotoRacing’s Varsity Challenge.  Exclusively created for student teams, it is perfectly suited for the project. This race is going to be held in New Jersey in July 2015. We are very confident in our chances the win.

Battery Assembly
Battery Assembly

About 250 Lithium-Ion cells required to provide all the power and energy necessary for a race. The powertrain runs at a voltage of 680V and can deliver up to 1000A. On its own, the battery is worth more than 15000$. All the funds gather with this campaign are going to be used to pay for the cells, giving the motorcycle a its complete range.

 The innovative aluminum frame design is a work of art. The front and back plates are machined, while the sides are made out of folded sheet metal. It was inspired from aeroplane construction methods. Michael Uhlarik of Amarok Racing has helped us with the initial design and we adapted it to our needs.

Risks and challenges

Our project not being a product creation project, we are really confident in our capacity to give our backers their rewards. However, being at the competition with a race-ready motorcycle still represents a challenge.

Although most of the engineering is completed and functional, there are still lots of minor bugs to fix and many road tests to make.We will face technical problems with same dedication we already had and all the competences we have. The risk of failure is present and will be present until the end of the project, but knowing this allows us to be cautious.
