Voxan Wattman / How about an electric cruiser?

Back1-White

We’ve seen electric-powered racers and off-road bikes, but this one is different. Engineered in Monaco and made in France, the Wattman is powered by the first Voxan electric motor with permanent magnets and liquid cooling, delivering 200hp and 200Nm of instant torque up to 10,500rpm. Power is sent to a 240mm wide tyre, with Voxan claiming a 0-100km/h and 0-160km/h times of 3.4 seconds and 5.9 seconds. 80 percent charge is reached in less than 30 minutes thanks to a “COMBO II” socket – the European quick charge standard – which is faster than what it takes to recharge your mobile phone. It can also be plugged to a standard household socket with its integrated charger, with the ultra-compact 12.8kWh battery making for a 180km range. Continue reading →

Custom / Black Beauty by Pure Motorcycles

Black-Beauty-4-700x493

You might have come across a few creations by French builder Pure Motorcycles, who excel at tweaking vintage Japanese motorcycles, especially the Honda CB500. Cafes, brats, trackers, whatever they might be, they’re all crowd pullers. The amount of detail that goes into each build is amazing, and photos don’t really do them justice, we tell you! And when it comes to something like the CB500, it’s sort of the perfect beach-hopping bike, and when it comes to being in the south of France, all you need are jeans, tees, sneakers and an open-face lid.
