Canadians helping change the face of electric motorcycles Featured

damon motorcycleDamon Motorcycles from Vancouver, Canada has announced an electric motorcycle with impressive performance data at the CES.

For the time being, however, only a premium small series is planned, a standard version will follow later.

The 150 kW Damon Hypersport is said to reach speeds of 200 mph (320 km/h) and, thanks to a liquid-cooled battery pack with 20 kWh capacity, will offer a solid 200 miles (320 km) of highway range, in city traffic even 300 miles (480 km).

The Damon Hypersport thus clearly surpasses currently available electric motorcycles in terms of range, which is due to the comparatively large battery. The standard battery from Zero Motorcycles comes to 14.4 kWh, Harley-Davidson uses a 15.5 kWh battery in the LiveWire. Only the Italian manufacturer Energica had announced an even bigger battery with 21.5 kWh for its 2020 models at the Eicma in November. The range here should be between 180 kilometres (highway) and 400 kilometres (city).

Some interesting features make the Hypersport stand out from other electric motorcycles. For example, an assistance system called ‘CoPilot’ uses radar sensors and cameras to monitor the motorcycle’s surroundings and can track up to 64 moving objects. If one of these objects comes too close to the route calculated on the basis of speed and direction, the system warns the rider of the danger via vibrations in the handlebars and LED lights in the cockpit. The CoPilot is to be designed in such a way that it feels intuitive for the driver.
