Amarok P1 Electric Motorcycle

Learn more about this motorcycle.

A prototype electric racing motorcycle that will compete in the 2011 TTX GP racing series. The Amarok P1 is designed and built in Lennoxville ON, and is powered by two Agni 95R DC motors, making it one of the lightest electric sport motorcycles in existence. To achieve maximum power-to-weight and optimize handling, Amarok uses proprietary Concentric Design methodology (like airplane design) to rethink conventional motorcycle architecture and challenge preconceptions of motorcycle engineering. The Amarok P1 features a frameless aluminum monocoque design that incorporates the structure, enclosed battery storage and the aerodynamic fairing all into one, eliminating duplication, optimizing distribution of loads and reducing weight across the entire motorcycle.

“The P1 is far from perfected, with many compromises made for the sake of time and limited resources. It is our design target to achieve a weight of 125kg (275 lbs) with the next generation P2, giving us power-to-weight parity with a gasoline powered 250cc Grand Prix bike. I want Amarok to prove that with battery electric vehicles, less really is more. Less heavy, costly batteries, but more performance and better handling.”
-Michael Uhlarik

“We were inspired by the DeHavilland Mosquito, which was made of plywood and glue, using low precision tools, and resulted in one of the highest performance fighter/bombers of the Second World War. The Beaver and Twin Otter bush planes are legends of durability, handling and simple construction, that have plied the north country for decades. Like so many products of Canada, their strength is in intelligent application of the simplest technology necessary to achieve design targets”.
