Their motorcycles are designed, engineered and built in their factory in France thanks to a top skilled team of passionate designers, engineers, painters, technicians, welders and upholsterers. By challenging traditions through intelligent disruption, DAB Motors is responding to riders who are looking for something new. A high-tech mobility tool, the CONCEPT-E is DAB Motors’s first electric motorcycle and begins the manufacturer’s transition to electric models.
The CONCEPT-E embodies the product vision of emerging motorcycle manufacturer DAB Motors. This style driven approach of electric motorcycle aims to define the future of a long journey of combustion engines. The team explores and designs a holistic solution for the boldest urban riders.
Designed as an object, not just a traditional motorcycle. Designers and engineers studied the assembly of the materials for the swingarm and dashboard, to elegantly integrate the cables.
Equipped with a 10kW motor and 51.8V Li-ion battery, the CONCEPT-E is the legal equivalent to a 125cc; easily driven after a few hours of training. The beauty of the CONCEPT-E electric machine is its driving comfort and intuitive use, combined with its powerful instant torque which propels you through the streets, almost silently.
You don’t need much when you use the best. In pursuit of excellence, DAB Motors have incorporated:
- carbon fibre
- Öhlins suspensions designed specifically for the project
- Beringer CNC aluminium brakes
- and a Gates belt drive, running on aluminium machined pulleys, to maximize power and minimize noise.
Minimalist and punctuated with innovation, the CONCEPT-E demonstrates DAB Motors’s desire to show only the essentials, and their signature design intention for future electric models.
