Revived French brand Voxan premiered its new electric motorcycle, the Wattman, at the Paris Motorcycle Show. According to the company, Wattman illustrates the new techniques and stylistic direction of the brand, with avant-garde technologies in the field of electric mobility and a futuristic design.
Wattman is capable of both quick acceleration (0-160 kilometers/hour in 5.9 seconds) and flexibility thanks to its belt drive electric motor. It also features 200 horsepower and a torque of 200Nm up to 10,500 rpm.
The frame is replaced by a rigid exoskeleton, integrating all the components of the powertrain. This results in a motorcycle without a visible technical feature. “This aluminum exoskeleton which contains the battery is the motorcycle’s signature. You can tell from this design that it is an electric machine,” said designer Sacha Lakic.
Additionally, Wattman features a charging time of 80 percent in less than 30 minutes thanks to a “COMBO II” socket, the European quick charge standard. It can also be plugged to a standard household socket. Its compact 12.8kWh battery ensures 180 kilometers range.
Wattman will be produced unit-by-unit, upon order, and hand-assembled in France, at the Solesmes (Sarthe) Electric Vehicle Manufacture.
