An electric motorcycle which looks like it has zoomed straight out of a Marvel movie has been hailed as one of the most advanced bikes ever made.
This space-age bike connects the rider with the road; with creators using Iron Man-esquedigital technology to build a Heads-Up Display (HUD) Zenith helmet and a super intelligent Origin biker jacket.
The Arc Vector debuts at Milan’s EICMA Motorcycle show on November 6, and marks the very first model to be produced by Coventry based engineering specialists, Arc.
The calf-skin trimmed helmet has been specially designed to include speedo, sat-nav and ancillary graphics; all projected onto the visor. The helmet also includes a live rear-view camera, cleverly allowing the rider to see behind them.
These vibrations can inform the rider of any potential hazards and can even provide performance-based feedback. For those who enjoy a thrill-seeking ride, the vibrations may work to stir the senses while out on the road.
The stylishly tailored Origin jacket can play music and can also inform the rider of how close they are to the limit of the motorcycle’s capabilities; based upon factors such as how hard they brake.
With a lightweight build, The Arc Vector is believed to have the best power-to-weight ratio of any other electric motorcycle in its calibre by a long way.
An exhilarating ride this may be, but – with a price tag of at £90,000 – you may well need the bank account of Tony Stark himself in order to have a go yourself.
