Newron’s curved-wood electric motorcycle design goes way out there
french manufacturer newron has unveiled an electric motorcycle design that features organically-curved wooden bodywork. beneath the soft wooden curves of the bike’s body, is a large, cylindrical pack that steeps towards the handlebars of the bike.
‘the thrill of being ‘one’ with your bike as an incarnation of you and to fill the world as you never felt it in total silence,’ says newron. ‘having customized aspects of it, esthetics and behaviour. a timeless and delicate peace of art tailormade at our ‘atelier de confection’.
as the world evolves, so do we. we are constantly seeking new ways to enhance our technical and design offering to bring magic to the road and to the people. our team has successfully built our second prototype and is en route to creating a customizable, exclusive, high-end motorcycle for the true connoisseurs who are seeking for a new experience and assets.’
newron is partnering with dassault systems and advans in france and plans to build 12 of these motorcycles in 2020. they have already worked through accelerator programs and newron is currently designing some ride-mode intelligence into the bike. it hopes this will allow riders to input their destination so that the bike can use power in the most efficient way.
We’re not sure if these guys will get this bike built, what its power or range might be or many further details. But this is a good-looking design that makes the battery pack a nice centerpiece, and we applaud it.
