APRIL FOOLS: STORM working on the first solar powered motorbike

Eindhoven, April 1, 2016

We are working really hard on the new design of our motorcycle and we are proud to finally make this announcement!

In cooperation with a large solar cell manufacturer we will include solar cells on our motorcycle, making it the world's first solar powered motorbike!

After a lot of research and calculations, we concluded that this step will make the motorcycle more efficient, resulting in a significant increase of range. In the coming months, we will do more calculations, find the most suitable solar cells and select the best spots to place the cells.

We are very proud with this breakthrough development. Stay tuned to receive more information!


UPDATE

Some of you got it, but some of you didn't!

Unfortunately, it is very inefficient to put solar cells on a motorbike as the surface that can be exposed to the sun is simply too small.

So we're not working on a solar powered motorbike, but who knows what will happen in the future! In the meantime, we just keep working on the first electric touring motorcycles that will inspire the world!

Besides, it looks much better this way, doesn't it?
