Armotia Due Electric Motorcycles

Mar 4, 2016

Category: Rides

Electric vehicles have become more common over the past decade as the technology has improved and made (relatively) affordable. We now have successful electric car companies like Tesla, new consumer models from Ford, and even a handful of supercars that run on electric engines, so it shouldn’t come as too big a surprise that we’re beginning to see more electric motorcycle companies like the Italian-based Armotia emerge.

The first models released by the young business are the ‘Due R’ and ‘X’. Equipped with 2WD, they’re both great for preforming in low-traction situations, but they’re distinct from one another in a few ways. Aesthetically, the Due X model and the Due R are respectively off-road and street vehicles. Weighing in at 275 pounds and pumping out just 15 horsepower, the X makes up for the low HP with 147 lb-ft of torque and a top speed 50 miles per hour, making it great for zipping around in the backcountry. The R model is a bit less torquey (it has just 132 and 15 horsepower), but has a slightly higher top speed of 55 miles per hour along  with a set of tires better equipped for the road.

These bikes come with a RUG-GEAR RG600 Android smartphone as a display, and runs an app which gives you a bevy of customizing options with the touch of your finger. Each will come with built-in cameras -(some of the first bikes to do so on the market) and can run for up to 1 hour and 20 minutes of electric fun. Official prices haven’t been released yet, but the bikes are expected to run for $13,500. [Purchase]
