Two of our members from the Strategy Team (Daan and Remco) are in central Asia to explore the route that the electric motorcycle will follow in August.
This challenging route will run along the centuries-old Silk Road, where the STORM caravan and traditional camel caravan will meet.
To make this challenge a success, Daan and Remco traveled 4500km overland from Tehran to Almaty whilst passing Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. They looked at the road quality, culture, customs transitions and Plug-in points for the motorcycle during the World Tour.
We are proud to announce that they have visited more than 10 universities and that they have inspired students by presenting about STORM. Furthermore, 3 different motorcycle clubs have committed to ride with STORM for several stages of the tour. Also, 12 inplug locations were added (from the Turkish border to the Chinese border) where STORM will charge her motorcycle during the World Tour.
Finally, the foundations have been laid for an event in Tehran (Iran) in collaboration with the Sharif University of Technology (MIT of the Middle East), and an event in Tashkent (Uzbekistan) in cooperation with the Poli Tech Museum (automotive exhibition) .
