The other day, I received a tip about an electric motorcycle concept from designer Paolo De Giusti and it's definitely one of the nicer electric concepts I've seen. Everyone seems to be turning out designs and there have been a couple of recent electric motorcycles introduced headed for production, but this design just looked right so I thought you might want to take a look. According to De Giusti, this bike would have a large electric motor in the rear hub and a smaller motor up front.
It's called the Big Battery SE and, as the name implies, it uses a single large battery pack that is exchanged when discharged. How well that would work without charging or battery stations located in many convenient spots is open to debate, but the bike itself shows electric designs are coming into their own.
De Giusti has a number of other designs, several based on Moto Guzzis and they look pretty sweet. A single cylinder turbo diesel that draws on early Guzzi singles for inspiration is nice and some front swingarm variations of a Guzzi 850 look interesting, too. This fellow is doing nice work, it's worth checking out.
Thanks for the tip, Laurent!
