End Of The Crude Oil Era: Untitled’s Electric Supermoto Notion

Project ‘Death to Patrol’.

While some are sceptical about the future of electric motorcycles, others like Adam Kay are a little more enthusiastic.  So enthusiastic, in fact, that they named their latest project ‘Death to Patrol’.

“Can the simple rules for designing a bike be dismantled?”  He asks.  โ€œWould you like to operate a motorbike with your legs?  Where and how should the rider sit?  Tank or no tank?  Foot peg position?  Road presence?  Speed โ€‹โ€‹as opposed to sound?

It was this conceptual education that led Adam to create a ‘DTP’ layout.  Assembled from a custom frame, prototype motor and a handful of off-the-shelf components, it’s a stunning case of how a compact electric-powered city motorbike should look.  And riding.

“The concept right here got here from a large-diameter body mountain motorcycle I rode  many years ago,” he tells us.  “I wanted this design to be comparable and fun-seeking. Nobody makes large-diameter motorbike frames for petrol motorcycles, so I think an electric motorbike might be what you want.

Adam didn’t need a tubular chassisโ€”he wanted to unabashedly showcase the bits that make a motorbike work extra.There aren’t anyt any plates to cover right here,” he says.  “The controller and motor, battery can all be seen.”

The first step turned into a straight-line comic strip of the electrical supermoto idea.  Next, Adam sent his comic strip to Jack Lenny – a product outfitter recognized for creating the ‘Tinker’, a downloadable, CNC-cut and bolt-on no-weld motorbike package.  Adam and Jack meticulously work on the design until they have fully incorporated the CAD drawings into the drawings.

Those documents then went to Mike at Survivor Customs to build the frame.  Mike tacked it together with 50mm tubing, using a braced mono-surprise layout with a custom swingarm.  The layout is just bona fide;  The best real part of the ‘bodywork’ is the box section that holds the seat.

The forks, yokes and rear shock are all from the KTM 390 Duke.  The 17″ wheels are SM Pro components, wrapped in Dunlop Mutant rubber and stopped by ISR brakes set to Wenhill lines. Since there’s no clutch, each brake is actuated via ISR controls on the handlebarsโ€”just like on a mountain motorbike.

For the motor, Adam grew up as an electrical motorbike producer, Sur-Ron.”I’ve ridden the Sur-Ran Light Bee off-road, that’s extremely good and fun,” he says. “So I contacted them directly and bought a trial motor from them.”

Adam installed a Sur-Ron motor with a new battery and controller.  Power is transmitted to the lower rear wheel via a chain drive, the motor is connected to a base plate that allows it to move back and forth to modify chain tension.

In the entire place, Adam roped in Paul Taplin to announce his arrival to life.  Paul turned out to be a boon to the project, wiring everything in less than a day.  But that’s just one section โ€” the men plan to redo the whole thing with a slim wiring loom built around the MotoGadget controller.

Up Pinnacle is a stable of Renthal bars, built by Biltwell Inc.  Equipped with grips and custom transfer housings that double as brake lever clamps.  Up front is a dual LED headlight from Durite, with a pair of LED rear lights from Alchemy elements mounted on the lower back of the frame.  Small Motogadget LED flip alerts are discreetly installed into tabs on the frame.

Glenn Moger introduced a leather-based success in the supermoto-fashion seat, while Aurum treated the finishing powder-coating.

DTP hits the mark visually, eschewing traditional motorbike design for anything quirky and aggressive.  In terms of overall performance and versatility, the Adam makes no bones about being true to its design as a compact versatility weapon.

“The top velocity is restricted to 50 mph,” he says, “however it’s more or less the acceleration for a metropolitan motorcycle. The variety depends on your riding style โ€“ the DTP is city-ready as opposed to long country-state rides.”

The numbers are not final but DTP is technically a prototype.  As soon as Adam finishes trying and tweaking, he’s working on small production projects with a goal of less than one hundred and fifty-five pounds.

We’re really tempted… How much are you?
