Passion for motorcycles has nothing to do with this. Any design lover and beauty seeker would gush over this curved-wood electric motorcycle. It is produced by the French company Newron and the first thing that might strike you is the incredible organically curved wooden bodywork and the giant center cylinder which is actually a battery that powers the electric motorcycle. You don’t need to know much about motorcycles to understand that they are usually built, more or less, around a combustion engine which also takes center stage. In this case, the center engine is replaced by a huge battery. Usually, motorcycle fans don’t like electric motorcycles because they don’t look sporty and ferocious enough. It’s true, a Harley Davidson has become a real piece of art.
Electric motorcycles, on the other hand, started to show up some 10 years ago and they do not really impress when it comes to design. Their batteries are usually to blame, because you can’t really build a beautiful speed and adrenaline vehicle around a big box-shaped battery pack. Things have changed with Newron’s new piece which incites “out of the box” thinking from the start. What is really interesting is the gigantic cylindrical battery pack reminiscent of the old ferocious combustion engine, but with a futuristic touch which makes it look perfect. More than this, just look at the curved wooden frame elements as they’re perfectly drawn from angle to angle, covering the whole motorcycle and giving it that “out of the future” feeling. I don’t know how to ride a bike, but this one, I’d like to have a go with. Also, the materials used are high-end, from the carbon fiber forks, to the beautiful blue light accents covering the battery.
“We wanted to make a product that will tickle the biker’s tastes by proposing something powerful, something imposing, that’s how the brand was born”, is the creed behind this “thing of beauty”. So far, the whole project has bee funded by the founder of Newron. That means around €150,000. Investors also added some €50,000 more and so far, it looks like a promising investment.
“The thrill of being ‘one’ with your bike as an incarnation of you, and to feel the world as you never felt it – in total silence” – Newron.
“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
