One of the leading electric motor company in UK, Saietta, are developing a radical new motor that has the capacity to change the future of electric motorcycles. In the field of electric motorcycle, Saietta has a remarkable history. In 2009, they won the First electric TT for starters. They also created the high performance NGS electric superbike.
Based out of Oxfordshire, the company in the next few years, they are planning a massive growth with their new electric motor which possess a features unique in configuration compared to other electric motorcycle company. Saietta seeks to reshape the electric motor landscape with their Asia Flux Traction(AFT) motor. Compared to the motors of other companies which use radial flux motors, the AFT motor provides a more portable and compact design, which translate to lower overall weight. In addition, they can generate less heat and produce more torque.
To let you know that, this new engine technology his taken seriously by Saietta. One of their parent companies, Agility Motors, has developed a radical chassis which, when paired with Saietta’s AFT motor, translate to a potent performance machine. Founded in 2008 by Lawrence Marazi the former-F1 engineer and aerospace, the company sought to develop environmentally sustainable, performance oriented motorcycles.
The Saietta namesake was adopted by Agility motor in 2015, which translates to ‘Thunderbolt, the Saietta NGS electric superbike. A high performance platform claiming 200 horsepower from an AFT motor. The chassis featured hub-centric steering and a carbon fiber monocoque assembly, apart from the stellar performance figures.
Presently, all these technological advancements are rather novel, and we understand that the prices are still very high.The Saietta NGS superbike was priced close to $75,000 USD, for starters. However, as it is with tech, as production continues to increase, and R&D cycles on, chances are we’ll see a substantial drop in price in the years to come.
