Italian Volt’s Electric Motorcycle is both Roadster and Cafe Racer
Want a roadster? How about a café racer. Thanks to startup Italian Volt, there is one bike that can be both—the Lacama.
The Lacama is Italian Volt’s first electric motorcycle. They designed it to be configured however the owner wants, whether that is a roadster, café racer or scrambler. It can even be completely customised thanks to innovative 3D printing.
The frame, swing arm and bodywork of the Lacama are all 3D-printed. This technology allows you to have the bike of your dreams. There is quite an array of colours and shapes to choose from when it comes to the bodywork.
The 3D design is not the only thing that is innovative on the Lacama. This bike is pretty high-tech. It features a TFT touchscreen that is enabled with smartphone connectivity for both Android and iOS, as well as GPS. The rider can view location, various performance factors and battery status on the screen. An app allows the owner to monitor and change the charging status remotely. Also, the riding profile can be customised with the app.
A 15 kWh lithium-ion battery pack provides a range of about 200 km per charge. The Lacama is equipped with fast charging. It can charge to about 80 percent in about 40 minutes or so.
As far as performance goes, this bike delivers. The electric motor cranks out 94 horsepower. It can zoom from 0 to 100 km/h in just under five seconds. Other features include an Ohlins suspension and Brembo brakes. The 17-inch wheels are available in either carbon fibre or aluminium alloy.
