Global warming cannot be ignored considering a sustainable future. It is an issue for all of us living on earth to minimize CO2 emission. One way to resolve this issue is EV – electric vehicles. Because of its emission-free, electric nature, it can be ridden in delicate environments. For example, it is safe to use inside facilities, such as warehouses and factories, and are quiet enough to ride from dawn to dusk without disturbing the community. EVs are also attractive in that they have less vibration (less tiresome for users), frisk acceleration unique to electric motors, and regenerative brakes. The cost of electricity is a mere 1/3 of gasoline. Plus, the mechanism is simple, which means less breakage and easier maintenance.
At aidea, we create electric motorcycles that not only consume electricity, but also provides electricity. Users can store night-time energy or solar energy into the vehicle battery and use as housing power, saving costs. An 8kWh battery can provide a full-day worth of energy to a standard household. It will also serve as lifeline during blackouts and disasters. Moreover, as these are vehicles, it can be used as “transportable power” in outdoor settings. Imagine a new way of enjoying leisure, like being able to use electricity freely while camping outdoors. Our electric motorcycle is much more than a vehicle, and will become a partner that fulfills lifestyles.
At aidea, we believe in the possibility of motorcycles. Compared to 4 wheel cars, motorcycles are smaller, occupies less space, and consumes less energy because they are lighter. It’s also effective that they tilt when turning. By implementing technologies such as auto-drive and tilt control, it is likely that presence of motorcycles will become stronger, playing a key role in society. There are no strict tradition or curdled conviction at aidea. If road conditions are unfavorable, we add tires. If rain and wind are rough, we add a roof. If there is a lot of luggage, we add trunk space. Thinking beyond the norm, we aim to create another level of satisfaction by pursuing safety, comfort, and convenience of motorcycles.
