french startup whaTTfornow has invented a brand new transmission machine for electrical motorcycles which mixes the vintage chain transmission with an electrical person who doesn’t be offering everlasting help. as a substitute, it delivers a robust on-demand torque that allows the motorbike to boost up from 25 km/hr in not up to 3 seconds.

‘we needed to return to actual biking and now not an electrical help motorbike,’ stated whaTTfornow founder francois guers. ‘you may have the common classical bicycle mode while you don’t wish to use the electrical energy but if you wish to have electric help, you’ll be able to get large energy.’
the whaTTfornow electrical motorcycles function a formidable motor that guarantees a torque of as much as 160 Nm, which is 2 to 3 instances greater than what’s lately to be had available on the market. the pedaling help is activated by means of a cause discovered at the handlebars and lines 3 other energy spice up modes, every turning in extra torque than the only sooner than. as soon as the person reaches the required pace, pedaling vintage mode can also be restored.
‘the electrical transmission lets in the person to transmit larger torque to the rear wheel,’ guers persisted. ‘torque produces acceleration. since electrical motorcycles are restricted to 25 km/hr, the target is to succeed in the highest pace as rapid as conceivable. this acceleration is identical or now and again larger than a normal bike.’
whaTTfornow is lately providing 4 other fashions: MTB, VTC, city and gravel — they all providing double transmission.
