Designing the first electric touring motorcycle

Having to cover 40.000 kilometres in 80 days has challenged STORM Eindhoven to create a motorcycle that holds great amounts of energy, but also enables the driver to easily replenish this energy. STORM Pulse uses a swappable, modular battery pack to be able to adapt its characteristics to the demands of the route. Furthermore, the motorcycle will have a major advantage over cars when navigating through crowded cities.

Modular batteries

Not only can we renew our battery pack fairly easy; it is also modular. This gives the driver the opportunity to adapt the vehicle to the circumstance it faces that day.
