Hirsch Design Introduces Comoto Electric Motorcycle - Production This Year?
In brief: Hirsch Design has done two things: pushed the limits on how small and light an electric motorcycle can be without becoming a bicycle and still provide the performance expected from a motorcycle.
Vehicle in the news
Manufacturer: Hirsch Design
The Comoto looks like a motocross bike crossed with a bicycle, but without the usual lame "moped" looks. The oversize tires and heavy frame combine with mountain-bike-style handlebars and a (relatively) small seat to make the general look of the Comoto.
The frame is lightweight T6 aircraft aluminum with dual front shocks and a single cantelever shock on the rear. The wheels are 26-inch mountain bike standard size, for which heavier performance alumninum is used and motorcycle-grade tires are fitted.
The Comoto is capable of 40mph speeds and 30 miles of range thanks to the 72V 20Ah li-ion phosphate battery pack.
And so ...
No word on price yet, but the Comoto is expected to be available later this year.
