08/12/2012

A little more than a year ago, we presented the first H-Ker prototype then called Luciole.


The company founded by Francois-Xavier Huille and Yves Kerlo to explore, develop and commercialize electric motorcycles continued to work on the prototype and will present next week the H-Ker First on a race-track, a recreational electric motorcycle developed for pilot schools.

Supported since the start of the project by the French Motorcycles Federation (FFM), this race-initiation electric motorcycle will allow to discover the basics of racing.

Designed from of an “hyper-sport” 125cc frame, the First offers 36hp of power with a weight of 150kg via two driving modes, eco or sport for a range up to 1 hour.

Its maximum speed is not announced but for the record the Luciole was able to reach 140kph.

Two types of batteries will be available, Lithium-Ion with a capacity of 7.9kWh or 9kWh.

H-Ker also announced that the First initiates a "line of bikes designed for race-tracks" and even envisions a 100% French ePower championship like the regional TTXGP series.

The H-Ker First will be available for sale or lease at prices undisclosed for now.

Here's an overview of what we will discover next Tuesday for the moment with the Luciole on this motorcycle-bound Circuit Carole.
