Designing electric motorcycles is often a “green field” design process; you start with a clean slate – no baggage, no legacy, no history. That is why you often see the strangest looking electric motorcycles (Brammo Enertia, Agility Saietta, Orphiro, Axle EV-X7). And the Austrian Biiista (that’s three “i” please) can be considered one of them.

The shape, though very nice, would look more at home in a comic strip or animation movie, with maybe Jessica riding it. But this is serious. The 5 kWh battery (an 8 kHw is under study) will power this electric motorcycle to speeds of up to 100 kph, with a range of 100 kilometers. That’s the performance of a serious 125cc motorcycle, and the bike only weighs 140 kgs.

The bike develops 10.5 kW power, and has a torque of 210 Nm, not bad.
