Facing another long traffic jam home tonight? Or will you be cramming yourself into a packed train carriage again? Well how about cutting through the traffic on an outstanding electric sports bike instead?
The Light Cycle Motorcycle was very cool, but it was too expensive. The Tron Lightcycle Flash Drive was cool, but it was just a toy. Now the Agility Saietta R Electric Motor Bike is cool, and is just right. Well, actually it is a bit expensive. It also is not officially a Tron Lightcycle, but the creators of this electric motorbike were clearly influenced by its design.
The Saiette features a cantilever-style front end, while the battery packs look to be configured in a similar chassis design as can be found on the Brammo Empulse. Reaching up to the head tube, the hump’s airflow looks like it will pass over the batteries on its way out to the Agni motor. It’s hard to gauge how effective the cooling will actually be, but if it works it’s a fairly elegant solution, so kudos there.
