Artem Smirnov – PUNCH! – MOTORCYCLE

TWO QUICK-DETACHABLE BATTERY PACKS COME UNFASTENED LIKE MOTORCYCLE TRUNK AND ARE CHARGED RIGHT IN THE APARTMENT. NO GASOLINE SMELL AND COMPACT DIMENSIONS MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO STORE PUNCH IN THE STAIRWAY NEXT TO BICYCLES AND PRAMS.
ELECTRIC MOTOR IS NOT A GOAL, BUT A MEANS.
THE CHOICE OF PROPULSION UNIT IS BASED SOLELY ON TECHNICAL REASONS:

  • ZERO EMISSION MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO DRIVE INTO THE STAIRWAY OR BAR, AND NOT TO PARK OUTSIDE;
  • ELECTRIC MOTOR ELASTICITY AND ACCELERATION CAPABILITY MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE HIGH DYNAMICS WITH RELATIVELY MODEST POWER (DUE TO THE NEED TO ADAPT TO EUROPEAN LEGISLATION AMONG OTHER THINGS);
  • GEARBOX ABSENCE MAKES IT POSSIBLE FOR MOTORCYCLE TO FOLLOW THE THROTTLE GRIP AT ANY TIME AND EVERY POINT OF MOTION PATH.
