Liion-GP Our mean machine

Electric Superbike Twente is currently working on its first extremely fast superbike. The enormous power and torque of electric motors enable a whole new world of opportunities. The motorcycle will feature thrilling acceleration, and at the same time a high top speed. 

Our superbike will be built from scratch. The very driven mechanical team designs a custom frame. This frame is designed around the main electrical components, in tight collaboration with the electrical engineers. At their turn, the electrical team pushes limits by designing and building our own battery pack. Both teams together work on our SCU, the Superbike Control Unit, which monitors and controls every single component of the superbike.  Finally, the whole bike is finished with an aerodynamic bodywork, designed in-house.
