eV-Twin in Monaco

Track testing the eV-Twin prototype at the Monte Carlo F1 circuit during the 2017 FIA Monaco Formula E.

The eV-Twin Story

 

After completing an honours degree in Mechanical Engineering that led to a career spent at sea, most recently commanding the luxury yacht, Silver Dream, Steve Smith founded eV-Twin Ltd in pursuit of his passion for classic cars and bikes while embracing more sustainable forms of transport. This journey began with an experiment to convert a 1953 BSA into an electric motorcycle – the development and build of which remarkably occurred aboard the yacht.

Setting out to couple the classic style of the BSA and the excitement of biking with the eco-friendliness of electric power, the result has combined past and future to create a truly exceptional model for present day riders.

This forward-thinking innovation is reflected in the name of the business: eV-Twin combines the acclaimed ‘V-Twin’ engine configuration of a classic motorcycle with the abbreviation ‘EV’ used for electric vehicles.

The successful development of the eV-Twin prototype, along with test runs that showed the bike exceeding its performance targets, led to the company’s inception. The first production run of six limited edition models began in Malta in 2016, while development of the MK2 custom carbon fibre model is well underway

  1. There are no specs on his website and the IG is mostly glamour shots of models with the bike :/ . The only thing I could gather from investigation is that the eV-twin uses a headway cells that total nominal 87.6 volts and maybe a 5.2kwh pack if they used 15ah cells. They are also using a a 10KW Golden Motor air cooled. Other than the really cool styling, I don’t see much to get excited about. just seem like this guy know who to get his bike in front of.

    • It is still prototype until next month when they realise the new model. That is why they do not have all TECH SPECS…But here is a few:
      “The initial prototype was capable of top speed of 50mph (80km/h) and a range of 50 miles (80 km), making the eV-Twin the perfect runabout, whether you need something for the city or on the open road. It’s already grabbed the attention of renowned models Dewi Driegen and Gilles Souteyrand, while Formula One drivers Jean-Eric Vergne and Johnny Herbert have both been fast to show enthusiasm and support for this magnificent creation.”

    • The production prototype is almost complete, using all new components giving much higher performance. We we relase the specifications and performance figures as soon as testing is complete, and hope to launch the new model at the end of April.
