We can't help happily smiling after we've seen the Tacita T-Race, a most welcomed appearance in the electric motorcycle market. We're looking at (probably) the first electric motorcycle to be tested in a real life cross-country rally (Merzouga, Morocco) and we hope we'll get to see more of these machines soon.
The Tacita stands for “Silent” in Latin, and you could easily guess why the name. Since cross-country rally racing is more to bikes' endurance and range than it is to speed alone, we are still wondering about the Tacita's range. Rumors claim the Tacita T-Race can last a whole day's riding on a full charge, but still we'd like to see some official data on that.

However, the Tacita T-Race is loaded with 4 Lithium-Polymer batteries intelligently loaded on the bike for a nifty balance. Despite the power storage, the Tacita T-Race is said to weigh in at less than 180 kg (397 lbs). The batteries come with more than 10 kWh energy storage and that's why the no-memory Li-Po batteries can be recharged anytime and anywhere with the supplied charger.

The standard charger needs 9 hours for a full charge, while an optional 3 kWh fast one can do that in 3.5 hours. The Tacita T-Race comes with a rated power of 8 kW and 24 kW peak rating, 3 “engine mapping” modes.

Equipped with 18” and 21” Excel rims and fully-adjustable suspension for both front and rear, the Tacita T-Race can tackle the roughest terrains, just like any combustion engine bike would. Optional solar charging stations are available. We're looking forward for official pricing and specs.
