Saietta Group, the would-be Tesla of the motorcycle world, is back with a bike that will lead ‘the dawn of the electric superbike.’ The Oxfordshire-based design engineering specialist has released teaser images of a ground-breaking, high-performance electric motorbike that’s set to lead a new era for bike riders.
The Saietta NGS, which stands for Next Generation Saietta, is an all-new British-designed electric powered superbike that promises blistering performance from its radical design and engineering. The name Saietta means thunderbolt in the Italian dialect from the area of Italy where Saietta’s CEO Laurence Marazzi came from.
Building electric bikes is no longer new for Saietta, Saietta is a leading developer of electric bike motors and battery technology used by other manufacturer around the world. The company has been building electric bikes since 2008.
The futuristic Saietta NGS is an electric-powered superbike with a load-bearing carbon fiber battery compartment, powerful electric motor and double-wishbone front suspension. The Saietta NGS is not going to be cheap motorcycle, and it’s not an ordinary motorcycle that we often see in the road. It’s all about performance, it packed with cutting-edge electrical components and top-spec cycle parts.
Saietta has not provided much information about the electric battery technology, but it claims that the technology are based on knowledge from the aerospace industry where tech are being more advanced and superior than the traditional lithium-ion battery tech that currently in use in a wide variety of applications.
Laurence Marazzi, Co-Founder and CEO of Saietta Group, said in a recent statement, “This machine is a big step forward for electric motorcycles, we see what Tesla are doing with electric cars as an inspiring example of a company winning awards and sales with great new technology."
Currently, the Saietta NGS is still in a prototype, and a huge amount of development time still need to be done before it can make it into full production. The Saietta NGS is expected to go on sale in early 2017 for around £58,000.
Saietta Group is an Oxfordshire, UK-based design engineering and manufacturing firm specializing in electric drive trains across multiple product sectors. The company has been formed following the merger of Agility Global and Agni Motors in May 2015.
