eROCKIT hybrid motorcycle

It says "motorcycle" - but it's electric, and requires you to pedal, so I'm posting it here.

..mostly for the picture. Odd looking thing, aint it?

Re: eROCKIT hybrid motorcycle

There's more than a whiff of perpetual motion here..."This is possible due to the proprietary eROCKIT electronics monitoring the driver's muscular effort and multiplying it by a factor of up to 50."

The site at http://www.erockit.net/en is remarkably closemouthed about exactly what they are promoting. It apparently is a LiPo-battery e-motorcycle with throttle control by pedal speed, with a cost of 28,900 EUR. Unless you're planning on pedaling hard while up on a center-stand for a long time first, you aren't going to be outputting the energy to do the promised 60KPH or 80K range.

Here's the real bottom line:
Motor

  • Type: DC permanent magnet motor
  • Power: 8 kW
  • Torque: 75 Nm

Batteries

  • Type: Lithium-Ion Nanophosphate
  • Capacity: 2,9 kWh
  • Life span: > 2.000 charge cycles

Charging Connection: AC 220V (50-60 Hz)
Charging time: 3 to 4 hours

And, it's funny looking.
