Cars, trucks, electric bicycles, electric boats – automotive cables from HUBER+SUHNER are already used in a variety of vehicles. And now they are also being used in electric motorcycles. Brammo, Lito Green Motion and other manufacturers rely on RADOX® automotive cables for the drive systems of their electric motorcycles.
A motorcycle to match any style of riding
The Brammo Empulse motorcycle. reaches a top speed of 177 kilometres per hour and has a range of 90 to 200 kilometres. With this model the racing team of Brammo competes successfully in races. Apart from fast riding, the motorcycle is also suitable for calm and relaxing tours. The SORA motorcycle by Lito Green Motion has the same range and reaches a top speed of 190 kilometres per hour. It has an electrically-controlled seat that can be adjusted while riding to convert it from a "low rider" to a racing machine. The motorcycle can therefore be used for both relaxed cruising and high-speed journeys. Features common to both models are zero emissions and little noise because of the electric motor.
Automotive cables for power transmission
Cables from HUBER+SUHNER are used for the drive system to transmit power between the battery and the electric motor. The RADOX® insulations used for the cables offer excellent resistance to thermal, chemical, electrical and mechanical loads. At the same time, the cables have excellent mechanical (pinch, abrasion, bending radius) and electrical properties. They can be installed in a space-saving way in the chassis. It was precisely due to these cable characteristics, and HUBER+SUHNER's previous successes in the market for electric vehicles, that the company was selected as the supplier.
More motorcycles equipped with cables
In addition to Brammo and Lito Green Motion, HUBER+SUHNER is collaborating with other manufacturers of electric motorcycles. Both Brammo and Lito Green Motion are also planning to ramp up production of their electric motorcycles and have requested additional cables. As a result, more electric motorcycles with cables from HUBER+SUHNER will soon be hitting the roads.
