TU/e students electric motor bike journey around the globe

The student team of the TU/e is ready for their journey around the globe with their self-built electric motorbikes. The second motor bike has now been completed and next week the touring motor bikes will be officially presented.

According to the TU/e website: "The mission of the student team STORM Eindhoven is to improve the global image of sustainable transport. Its electric touring motorcycle, called ‘STORM Pulse’, is the perfect model of what the students believe electric transport has to be: quiet, efficient and with a range of 380 kilometres, an unprecedented sense of freedom. And all that with the rugged look you would expect of a motorcycle".

"What is striking is the battery pack developed by the students themselves. It consists of 24 individual cartridges and can generate up to 28.5 kWh of energy. You can also adjust the number of cartridges to create a lighter bike and a sportier ride".

The team is scheduled for the electric motor bike world journey on August 14. "During the STORM World Tour in 2016 the student team will be riding around the world in 80 days, a journey that takes in the northern hemisphere, through Europe, Asia and North America, and a total of 26,000 kilometers of road. The key to convincing the world, STORM Eindhoven believes, lies in sharing the experience. People as well as universities and companies from all over the world can take part in the ‘STORM Grid’ and offer electricity or other facilities".
