If we’ve said it before, we’ve said it a thousand times: electric drivetrains are well on their way to replacing gas-powered ones. And, while some will certainly decry this change, we welcome it with open arms. Especially if it means advancements like the Arc Vector, the world’s most advanced electric motorcycle.
Almost out of thin air, the newcomers at Arc have unveiled this majestic futuristic bike at EICMA — surely dropping the jaws of journalists, fans, and competitors alike. And a big part of that is because this isn’t just a bike; it’s a complete system, comprised of the motorcycle, a smart helmet (complete with an onboard HUD, like those used by fighter pilots), and haptic body armor that can vibrate to physically alert you to hazards on the road. Of course, the bike itself is nothing to scoff at either, with an effective range of up to 170 miles per charge, a 0-60 time of 2.7 seconds, and an electronically limited top speed of 150 mph. Pair all that with other features like onboard WiFi, voice control, programmable riding modes (including one that will let you feel the music you pipe in), and more — and it’s no surprise that this magnificent ride is set to sell for $117,000.
