Following its electric land speed record contender, the WMC250EV, which has a gaping hole through it, UK-based White Motorcycle Concepts is pitching a more practical for real-world use vehicle – that also has a hole through the vehicle.
The vehicle, dubbed WMC300FR, is a hybrid vehicle based on the Yamaha Tricity 300 which uses the same 292cc single-cylinder four-stroke motor but with the same patented technology central to the all-electric WMC250EV high-speed demonstrator in the mix.
One of the technologies is the radical, patented Venturi Duct that aims to reduce drag by pushing air through the vehicle as opposed to around it. The result is a gaping hole that runs through from the front straight to the back of the scooter. Though, the hole here is not as obvious it is on the high-speed demonstrator.
Here’s an overview of the key features:
In addition, the hybrid three-wheeler features a 5 kW hybrid power awaits that uses two robust and proven 56V 12 Ah detachable lithium-ion batteries from EGO Power+ that can be fast-charged in multiples of 6 from a standard three-pin plug. This means the White Motorcycle Concepts WMC300FR First Responder Scooter can be deployed even without official infrastructure is in place.
The WMC300FR is a bike designed specifically for use as a fully operational first response vehicle that aims to serve its purpose (as a first responder vehicle) with a reduced carbon footprint. With the WMC300FR, it is said that it can reduce carbon emissions by up to 50% when compared to conventional motorcycles and scooters. The vehicle is developed in conjunction with Northamptonshire Police.
