Camiel Janssen, a biker himself, has designed a new motorbike with an electric engine. ‘Batteries are becoming increasingly smaller, which allows designers a freedom to create different shapes: usually a combustion engine and a petrol tank would take up so much space.’ His Elektromotor is free of such ballast. The batteries easily fit into the frame, the rest is aerodynamics and design. The Elektromotor is lightweight, environmentally friendly and sustainable. But it still offers all the things that make riding a motorbike so much fun: comfort, manoeuvrability, and not in the least, lots of power and speed.
