It’s the age of electrification and the wheels on which we vroom down the roads are transforming in an efficient way. Though the electrified vehicles haven’t received that expected support for now, but in coming future, if we consider the depleting levels of fossil based fuels. Ultimately, electric based vehicles will be preferred more over the conventional type.
Furion Motorcycle based in French has created a new concept by combining an electric motor and Wankel rotary engine. The company is located in the Mancelle region. It collaborated with two engineering schools, a team of consultants, and industrial partners. The team comprises Nicolas Gallet (engineer), Eric Chauvelier (hybridization and mastery of energies), and Adrien Chareyre (four times super motorcycle world champion), prototyping expert—Christophe Bihr and the specialized team of MBmotors.
The hybrid motorcycle Furion m1, developed by the company, is an efficient energy linked solution that brings down the consumption of fuel drastically. Its hybrid mechanism gives out best of the dual engines. It offers extraordinary electrical efficiency on the city roads that too with zero emissions. Moreover, the thermal engine comes in two modes: long range mode gives superior fuel economy for the trips up to 300 miles, while the sports mode pulls out maximum power it can from two dynamic engines for advanced performance.
Coming on to the detailed specifications of the vehicle, as said the engine is the combination of an electric engine of 40Kw and dual rotor. The capacity of the dual engine is 654 cc after combination. It generates about 180 of horsepower and 205 nm of torque.
Dimensionally, it lengths 2095 mm and has 140mm of ground clearance. Total weight is 209 kg and fuel capacity is 16 liter. The size of the front wheel is 120/70/17 and rear is 190/15/17.
The overall components of the vehicle are assembled on the tubular trellis frame. The rear suspension comes with monoshock horizontal gas type backlink that can be adjustable in rebound and preload. The front brake is assembled with 310 mm double disc petal with 4-piston radial calipers and the rear brake has 250 mm of single disk petal with single piston caliper. Power transmission is distributed through the chain drive, which is mated with the 6-speed gearbox.
The pricing structure and launch dates are still too far from the disclosure. So stay tuned to get more details about future launching dates and price.
