It runs on an electric motor that gets 100 kilometers for 7 kilowatts. I’m kind of excited. From lumeneo.fr/welcome.html

    1. Safety is overrated.
      Look! No mirrors!

    2. A scooter with a roof. Big deal. I’d rather get a proper motorbike.

      @Annarchy: There is no such thing as “100km on 7kW”. You probably mean 100km on 7kWh – which is sweet, as it works out to maybe one buck for 30-50 miles. If you meant to say 7kW, you would be wrong, as this thing puts out 15kW (21 horsepowers) – puny but enough for a city scooter.

    3. If it had air conditioning, I’d file it in the “maybe” section.

    4. A Smera is what you would be if you were hit in one of these things.

    6. Even a smart would roll over this thing like a truck.

    7. So called because you get “smera’d” all over the highway when you’re T-boned by a passenger car!

    8. It says it uses “domestic plugs (230 V 16A)” to charge. I’m kinda blanking on my grade 10 science but isn’t that the voltage for Europe, where this is made? Wouldn’t that make charging over here difficult?

    9. I have the overwhelming urge to tip this thing over. With one hand.

    10. Because it has a roof every moron and their neighbor thinks it is a car. Fuck you, idiots. It’s a weatherproof motorcycle. When you see a motorcycle do you automatically reject it because it is unsafe in a collision? When you see a motorcycle do you automatically want to “tip it over?” What a fucking bullshit machismo.

      This would probably be brilliant in Paris where people are pretty, traffic is a bitch and where it rains every now and then. One would be able to get from A to B in time with clean and dry clothes and a non-helmet hairdo.

    11. also, from the link:

      “The use of electric motors with a group of batteries is the most earth friendly technology. Of course, there is no pollution, no C02 gas, no smoke, no noise.
      Each motor weighs less 30Kg and is made up to 98 % of pure metals, aluminium, copper and iron. Its recycling is simple.
      An electrical car also avoids all the pollution created by a thermal engine car: oils, catalytic exhausts, heavy metals.

      Ecological, the electrical solution is also economic. The Lumeneo motors were developed to meet precisely the needs of SMERA and to optimize the weight/power ratio. You just need 7kw for driving 100 kilometers.
      Each braking action is transformed into energy by the alternator and goes up in the batteries, increasing the autonomy of Smera.

      The brushless motors offer the advantage to have no friction parts that makes it possible to have no maintenance and an excellent reliability.
      Our electric motors are designed for a 200 000 km lifetime.
      Only one moving piece: the inside rotor on its ball bearings.

    12. @Marcika – you are absolutely right. Typo, sorry!
