Hero MotoCorp Company is active in the development of two wheeled vehicles. A few days ago we reviewed a prototype diesel motorcycle RNT150, and now they introduced a new concept called Hero iON.
Hero iON concept stands futuristic design, as well as an incredible bundle and high technology. It is equipped with an electric motor with a lithium-air batteries, as well as hydrogen fuel cell. Theoretically, lithium-air batteries have a capacity several times greater than conventional lithium-ion batteries, which are used on modern electric vehicles. The Li-Air battery uses oxygen from the surrounding environment as the cathode oxidant instead of having an internal oxidizer. This technology is not yet widespread, but it is actively developing, as it can be an alternative to the heavy lithium-ion batteries.
Of course, Hero iON – it’s just a dream of the future, given the number of innovative details:
– Electric motors in the wheels
– The use of magnetic levitation (zero friction ) for driving and braking
– Suspension Hero M-link (magneto rheological shock: instead of springs, a special liquid that is capable of changing the viscosity of the applied magnetic field), on-board computer automatically adjusts the suspension, using a variety of sensors
– Hubless wheels
– The use of gyroscopes to maintain stability motorcycle
