Honda’s Brand New Electric Motorcycle

Oct 20, 2023

In a world where environmental concerns are at the forefront of everyone’s minds, it is crucial to find innovative and revolutionary technologies to improve our carbon footprint whilst also making transport for the individual safer, cheaper, and easier. Because of this, there has been increased focus on inter-city transport and electric vehicles. Many drivers who live in busy cities tend to use public transport or own small city cars which are more environmentally friendly and much cheaper than other gasoline/diesel vehicles. However, Japanese automaker Honda has just introduced a new groundbreaking mode of transport which may pave the way for the future of urban mobility. 

Honda EM1

What we are talking about is the brand new Honda e-Bike which introduces a revolutionary solution that combines innovation, style, and eco-consciousness. It is a sleek and sophisticated electric motorcycle designed with the environment in mind. It features a lightweight frame that enhances manaevourability and holds a powerful electric motor, long-lasting battery, and simple controls.

Now you may think electric motorcycles have been around for many years now so what’s different… The difference is that the Honda EM1 has some incredibly interesting features such as integrated sensors and a user-friendly app that allows the rider to customise their riding experience. There are pedal assistance levels that track fitness metrics and the choice between eco-mode and standard mode. One other cool little feature is an integrated USB port for charging devices on the go.

The Honda EM1 has an ergonomic design which ensures a comfortable riding position, reducing strain on the rider’s body during long journeys. It is also equipped with multiple advanced safety features such as responsive brakes and efficient lighting systems which make it great for congested traffic and dark city nights.  

In terms of performance specs, the Honda EM1 is capable of 28mph and 2.3bhp which doesn’t sound much but you have to remember that the vehicle is made for city driving. It is aimed squarely at new riders looking for accessible transport and is actually the first electric motorcycle offering from Honda in Europe. After the EM1, Honda has suggested that they will be adding another three electric bikes to their European line-up. The EM1 weighs just 95kg with its battery included and has a weight height of 740mm making it incredibly light and accessible for new riders and old riders alike.
