“If you were like us grew up in the late 90s/early 2000s (Our team member Julian Palapa is older than the rest of us in Katalis ), you will remember lots of anime’s with fond memories. Ranging from Dragon Ball – Z to Yu-Yu Hakusho. From Patlabor to Doraemon. Detective Conan to Captain Tsubasa
Watching these series will surely bring back the memory of your childhood. Just like in the old days, when you were watching these series on Sunday morning, or on the weekdays afternoon, right after you’ve got home from school.
So we thought anime would be a good sort of introductory presentation of the upcoming Katalis EV.500. A bike that will clearly brings back the nostalgic memories of the past and at the same time, present the idea of future mobility.
Identity precedes everything in brand strategy. Identity is the starting point that triggers behaviour. We aim to builds a branding identity with a splash of Japanese Pop Culture. This bike aims to be initially perceived with sci-fi and futuristic characters” – KATILIS EV ON INSTAGRAM
As you can see, this bike is about mode about design, than about anything else. So much attention was given to details, so we asked to see the prototype making images!
