H-Ker First, a New Electric Racing Motorbike [Video][Photo Gallery]
The brand's name may seem a bit peculiar in the first place, but after learning that the two guys behind this prototype are named Francois-Xavier Huille and Yves Kerlo, things start to make more sense. As for the model name, there's really nothing to be explained.
The H-Ker First looks nice and shows some neat flowing curves, for starters. It somehow reminds us of the older Ducatis, and that's really nice. The bike can be loaded with two types of batteries: a 7.9 kWh or a 9 kWh, both with Lithium technology, loaded engine and all inside a "hypersport" 125cc frame and weighing in at 150 kg (331 lbs).
H-Ker First offers two driving modes: sport and eco, with a total range of up to 1 hour. Its makers declare that this bike is intended to become an educational vehicle in pilot schools, getting the students used to the motorcycle racing basics. There is no exact date when the First will become available and no price, but we'll keep you posted.
