This is Spanish electric motorbike maker Volta Motorbikes’ Volta BCN electric motorbike. It is as futuristic as it is beautiful. It may look as out of this world as the snail we saw a few years ago, but it is futuristic enough to keep me ogling over it, With an output of 25 kW, Volta BCN Electric Motorbikes is not exactly the most powerful and a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph) and a range of 70-100 clicks (43-62 miles), it is neither the quickest nor the furthest, but boy, is it a beauty.
It takes the 1.5 kWh onboard charger just 2 hours to get it to full charge via a regular 220V domestic outlet. The electric two-wheeler’s DC motor is juiced by a lithium polymer battery system, beautifully integrated into the body, that complies with safety regulations, so you’d be sure it won’t go up in flames while you are riding or charging it. Where it used to be a fossil fuel tank, the requisite “hump” of the motorbike is storage compartment big enough for a full-face helmet.
Other worthy mentions include an onboard USB charger, easy battery check via a dedicated app and a choice of up to three power maps (Sport, City, and Eco). Altogether, there are three models of Volta Electric Motorbikes to choose from: #BCNCity, #BCNSport, and #BCNForest. Whichever you choose, the specifications are pretty much identical.
What sets each model apart are basically the equipment level. The Volta BCN Electric Motorbikes are available in Spain through a network of dealers with a wallet-crunching starting sticker of €8,940 (around US$10,570). As for international buyers, you may want to reach to Volta Motorbikes for more details because, Volta Motorbikes said so.
