Classified as Limited Speed Motorcycle (LSM) in Canada with max speed of 70km/h
Regular Car driver’s license, registration and insurance is required
Same road regulations apply for it as for 49CC motorcycles.
The Motorino GTl is built on the same chassis as the Motorino XMl e-bike but the motor power rate is higher and the controller isupports higher current. This bike has already made it to the European market under the Super Soco brand regulated to 45km/h max speed.
As soon as you see this bike you will immediately assume that it is manufactured by a famous motorcycle manufacturer with extensive experience in design and production. You would be right. This bike is a collaborative project of the likes of BOSCH, PANASONIC and other European companies contributing not only to its immaculate design and outstanding performance but to its rigidity and durability as well.
Motorino GTl is built with 60V/26AH Panasonic high energy density Lithium battery cells, the same batteries used in Tesla cars. Each single battery cell is equipped with individual protection which bypasses the cell in case of failure compare to cluster controlled battery assembly. The battery is encased in an elegant and strong aircraft aluminum shell. The battery compartment can take two sets of batteries that will double its range. A single battery can power the bike for 50 km on ECO mode of 45km/h and 40km on full speed. The batteries are are also removable and can be charged on or off the bike. The battery BMS sophisticated algorithm calculates dynamically its State of Charge (SOC) and displays this on the dashboard in the form of remaining riding distance available. We will also offer an Android and OS dedicated app can receive this information as well soon.
The 12” BOSCH motor rotor is the rear cast aluminum wheel itself and it has been developed as precisely as a Swiss watch. The rated power of the motor is 1500 watts but it can effortlessly support a peak power of 3000 watts equivalent to more than three horse power when accelerating or used on steep inclines. On full speed it rolls back to 800W when used on flat terrain. The excess of backup power prevents it from overheating thus extending its lifespan indefinitely. Nevertheless, the motor applies full power exactly when demanded. The torque is the main criteria for the capability of a bike and the GTl boasts over 130NM torque at speed of 45km/h.
The heart of the bike–the controller–is encased in a one piece ribbed die-cast aluminum box for exceptional heat dissipation. It is mounted on the front of the bike for more efficient cooling although its oversized current ratings would allow it to stay cool even during long uphill rides. It is a Field Oriented Controller (FOC) which has a vector control algorithm that maintains efficiency in a wide range of speeds. This controller also dynamically takes into consideration torque changes according to the road conditions. Finally, it is equipped with a dedicated processor monitoring all electronic components ensuring a safe and efficient ride for you.
The quality of the mechanical parts of the Motorino XMl is no less impressive than the quality of the electrical components. The unique mechanical construction starts from the chassis that is designed on the basis of the split frame concept of a racing motorcycle. This allows both a robust and light construction. The front end is robot-welded carbon steel that is then painted by electrophoresis. This only weighs 6kg. The rear half of the frame is robot-welded aluminum alloy argon and subjected to T6 heat processing to the strength of 240MPa. This means the bike is strong enough to carry a load of up to 150kg (330lb).
Along with its impressive rigidity, the XMl also comes with the comfort of exceptional suspension. The bike is supported by inverted 700mm long and 35mm wide motorcycle grade front shock absorbers. With 200mm travel distance strong torsion resistance, and an aggressively positioned angle, it provides a comfortable ride even on rough terrain. The rear hydraulic and adjustable monoshock adds to the incredible comfort of the XMl.
BRAKES and SAFETY features
The Motorino XMl is equipped with a massive 220mm disk hydraulic double piston front brake with oversized floating callipers. Since on any bike the front brakes absorb 80% of the pressure of braking, this brake will more than handle any situation you are in. On the real wheel, a 180mm hydraulic disk brake is installed. also, waterproofed switches on the rear and front brake lever activate the regenerative motor brakes recuperating the kinetic energy and returning it to the battery. The smooth regenerative braking is always applied prior to the mechanical braking, thus acting as an Anti Block System (ABS). The battery BMS algorithm also ensures that the maximum amount of converted electric power is utilized.
Six LED modules are incorporated in the Polycarbonate high/low beam head light enclosure. These provide brighter and more wide illumination than the equivalent capabilities of a halogen headlight. Over 8000 lumens are concentrated in 35 degrees beam at high beam mode. Thirty independent LED support wide area daylight running light. The rear running and brake LED lights are wrapped around the rear end providing 270 degree visibility. The front and rear LED turn signals are 40cm apart from each other that make this bike compliant as motorcycle, although is regulated as bicycle now.
DISPLAY, GAGES, SWITCHES
An extra wide bright dashboard displays Current speed and error codes, Total mileage, Controller temperature, Real time output current, Battery State of Charge, Distance per charge, trip distance and remaining distance, Ambient temperature and current time. All these data can be displayed on a smart phone screen when the application is available at the middle of the year. Three electronic gear switch, hi/low beam headlight switch and motor kill switch are ergonomically position on the right-side handle bar.
Motorino XMi has mechanical and electronic theft protection devices. It is equipped with steering wheel lock that locks the handlebar in one position. Apart from that it is equipped with electronic keyless starting system that makes almost impossible to start the bike if you don’t have the remote ignition activation knob. The Motor automatically locks-up if the remote control is not present nearby. The bike is equipped with network enable GPS system which communicates with smart phone application and the bike can be located anywhere in the world. The application is due in June. The bike can be unlock and lock also remotely by the application.
BMOS and NETWORK
The Motorino XMl is equipped with Bike Management Operating System (BMOS) that communicates with all bike electronic components and is responsible for testing them each time it is started. The GPS module, the security and communication module are incorporated in the BMOS. The BMOS can communicate with smart phone through Android and OS by 2G GPS connection and can transfer information about the battery state of charge, location of the bike, error reports, temperature, etc. When a centralized Motorino XMl server is install it will be capable to analyze each bike technical state and send individual messages if special maintenance or repair is required. The bike can be also remotely disabled by the application or automatically disabled if crosses a pre-set geofence. The Application and the server are due by the end of June.
