In the world of motorcycles, not a lot has changed over the last 50 years. Styles change and riders taste change. Big bodies Harley’s made way for small, streamlined cafe racers. Fads come and go, and the fundamentals stay relatively constant. Enter UK based Untitled Motorcycles. They decided to partner with California based electric Motorcycle company Zero Motorcycles. With Hugo Eccles, Co-Founder and Design Director at Untitled, spearheading the collaboration, he decided to go an entirely different direction.
The futuristic bike takes on an industrial and yet modern feel with hand milled controls and a monochromatic paint scheme. The bight red LED taillights help contrast the matte grey paint scheme and metal work giving it a feel like something out of Bladerunner. The XP’s core is a machined aerospace-grade aluminum powertrain that contains the batteries, charger, and motor. The 82kW motor produces 140ftlb/190Nm of torque – almost double that of a conventional superbike – capable of accelerating the XP to 124mph/200kph with a single twist of the wrist. The bike it still very much a prototype but with recent reception of the forward thinking design, we could defiantly see these hitting the streets soon.
