Manufacturers keep surprising the world with new ranges of modern and sophisticated technology. Among these new innovations, the RMK E2 motorcycle has made its appearance on the electric motorization market. What is the particularity of this new machine?
The RMK E2 motorcycle: what are its characteristics?
The RMK E2 motorcycle is a Finnish motorcycle of the future, designed by a young manufacturer from the RMK Vehicle Corporation group in Finland. This two-wheeled machine is a 100% electric motorcycle with a rechargeable battery for about 2 to 3 hours. The battery is made of Lithium-Ion with a range of up to 300 km and a maximum speed of 160 km/h. However, it is not 100% charged, but only 80% charged when recharged. The weight of this car reaches 200 kg. The RMK E2 motorcycle has a power output of up to 50 kW and a torque of 320 Nm, which is equivalent to 68 horsepower.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of this new motorcycle?
Thanks to its range, the RMK E2 motorcycle allows you to cover a distance of 200-300 km. However, the energy expenditure of this type of two-wheeled vehicle depends on the pace you adopt during your journey. Its recharging system allows you to save time. This type of motorcycle also has advantages in terms of eliminating the secondary transmission and reducing the weight of the suspension. With a speed of up to 160 km/h, you can ride at any speed if you want to arrive on time. It’s the kind of motorcycle that adapts to any riding position.
Other features of RMK E2 motorcycle
The RMK E2 motorcycle is still a prototype that was presented at the motorcycle show in Helsinki. It does not have a standard drive chain, but its electric motorization comes directly from the rim of its rear wheel, as the motorcycle does not have a hub. A model between the sporty type and the roadster, the RMK motorcycle is the perfect competitor to the Harley Davidson Live Wire. The motorcycle also does not have a braking system which is compensated by the power of the engine brake. The price of this marvel remains however still very high reaching 24.990 euros payable in two payments of 2000 euros (non-refundable) and a second payment of 23.000 euros. You must therefore make a pre-order with the supplier if you wish to own one.
