NOVUS, a German startup, presented its first premium electric motorcycle, with a unique design and entirely made of carbon fiber. The model looks more like an electric bicycle than a motorcycle, with a hollow frame and mountain bike-style handlebars.
It is handcrafted from virtually all carbon fiber parts. The frame, for example, is a single piece, with a hollow central part and battery kit at the bottom. This frame weighs just 6.9 kg and is made for just one person, holding up to 125 kg.
According to the company, this is the first super-light premium electric motorcycle. “NOVUS is more than a motorcycle. It is a work of art on wheels.” The inspiration, according to them, came from bicycles and motorcycles.
Another highlight of the model is its mono fork front suspension, with 100 mm of travel. It is complemented by wheels, also in carbon fiber. With that, the total weight is only 80 kg, including the battery.

The NOVUS electric motor is located on the rear wheel and has a peak power of 30 kW, which allows it to go from 0 to 50 km/h in just 2.8 seconds, and reach a top speed of 130 km/h.
