Most electric motorcycles are designed to look like their petrol counterparts, which means most don’t really stand out, that is unless…you’re talking about designer Artem Smirnov’s PUNCH. It keeps things simple by building around a cylindrical body that looks perfect for the city. Most electric motorcycles on the market today are powered by rechargeable lithium ion batteries, though some early models used nickel-metal hydride batteries. We’re assuming this one draws power from the a lithium ion setup.
Other features include two detachable batteries that can be manually removed and charged indoors. No power specifications were mentioned, but the designer did mention that there will be two models capable of hitting top speeds of 65mph and 75mph respectively. On a full charge, you can expect to travel up to 68-miles.
