Features

Magnetic motor, call Sumo, is a hybrid between a electromagnet and a permanent magnet.

Runs on neither petrol nor diesel.

Motor housed inside the bike's rear wheel.

The manufacturers say the motor is seven times more cost efficient than scooters running on petrol.

Almost noiseless

Range: as much as 180 kilometers on one charge.

Battery can be charged at home.

Full charge takes just a little over six hours.

The vehicle can travel up to speeds of 150 kilometers per hour.

Daisuke Ito, a professional racer who test rode the EV-X7 prototype, said it could potentially replace machines we now see in motor races.

Construction of a small size high power motor is a good technical

achievement. Most electric motors today operate at over 95% efficiency

thus, there is not really much room for efficiency improvement. However, a

good electrical coupling between a high storage capacity battery and such a

motor can provide remarkable mileage for a scooter. Thus, while this is not

earth shattering, it is certainly good engineering.
