A new electric motorcycle called Roskva is supposed to bring together the amazing technology and environmentally friendly benefits of an electric vehicle with the aesthetically pleasing styling cues of motorcycles with modern parts. A team of five students at the University of Life Sciences (UMB) in Oslo, Norway came up with the concept of the bike and designed on the premise that users will want to “take it out for a ride on a sunny day” to enjoy the riding experience, while still taking it to work on Monday. According to their site, the “Roskva is a machine in which the advantages of environmentally friendly electricity are combined with pure riding experience.”
The bike features an all carbon fiber unified frame and bodywork that weighs less than 25kg. It even rolls on carbon wheels, while a 94-hp motor propels the bike to a top speed of about 112MPH, with a maximum range of 62 miles. There’s still no official word on if the Roskva electric motorcycle will see production, but those five Oslo, Norway are looking for sponsors to make their dream electric bike come to life.
