This ultimate commuter, mixing high-tech and performance, is now in production for only 29 unique machines. Upon the success of the CONCEPT-E, the first electric prototype of DAB Motors, released in July 2021, we decided to create the Concept-E RS, its street legal version.
The Concept-E RS is powered thanks to a 9 kW motor connected to a 51.8V lithium-ion battery. The electric setup offers a range of 68 miles on a full charge while the engine also has the gumption to get up to a top speed of 65 miles per hour. 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.
From experimental to production
DAB Motors’ engineers have worked to conform the experimental concept motorcycle to the street legal safety standards, which includes electromagnetic compatibility (EM), approved lightning systems, braking tests and introducing new components such as a digital dashboard and all mandatory elements in a very minimalist way like the new DRL system, turn signals, licence plate holder, mirrors and reflectors.
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. We explore and design 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.
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.
CONCEPT-E ‘s design is based on two key dynamics: the horizontal line bringing simplicity, and the oblique line, which perpetuates DAB Motors’s iconic “flying back” form, giving an impression of speed and lightness at the rear of the motorcycle.
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.
