French motorcycle manufacturer VOXAN has unveiled the WATTMAN electric motorcycle at the Paris Motorcycle Show.
Symbolic of VOXAN’s revival, the WATTMAN illustrates the new techniques and stylistic direction of the brand, with avant-garde technologies in the field of electric mobility and a design that anticipates the shape of bikes to come.
With 200 HP and an instantaneous torque of 200Nm up to 10,500 rpm, VOXAN WATTMAN is now the world’s most powerful production electric motorcycle.
WATTMAN accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 3.4 seconds and from 0 to 100 mph (160 km/h) in 5.9 seconds.
Carbon wheels and belt drive, the new Voxan comes with an exoskeleton which contains the battery, motor and cooling systems.
VOXAN inaugurates a new motorcycle architecture built around a motor-battery pack carrier set. The frame is replaced by an ultra-rigid exoskeleton, integrating all the components of the powertrain.
This results in a very pure motorcycle without a visible technical feature. To Sacha LAKIC, its designer: “this aluminium exoskeleton which contains the battery is the motorcycle’s signature. You can tell from this design that it is an electric machine.”
VOXAN WATTMAN features an exceptional charging time of 80% in less than 30 minutes thanks to a “COMBO II” socket, the European quick charge standard. It can also be plugged to a standard household socket, thanks to its integrated charger.
Its ultra-compact 12.8kWh battery ensures 112 miles (180 km) of range.
Primarily intended for an exclusive international clientele seeking innovation, VOXAN WATTMAN will be produced unit-by-unit, upon order, and hand-assembled in France, at the Solesmes (Sarthe) Electric Vehicle Manufacture.[wzslider height=”400″ lightbox=”true”] [source: VOXAN]
