The Storm wave motorcycle is fully electric and is equipped with a two-stage, SmeshGear transmission. Partly because of this, this motorcycle is comparable in terms of performance to a big touring motorcycle, and requires only a ‘small’ (A2) drivers license.
On Sunday, August 14, 2016, the Storm Wave embarked on a journey around the world in 80 days. The SmeshGear made it possible for the Storm team to save a lot of energy. This technique increases the distance that the motorcycle can travel on a daily basis. The Storm team itself called the SmeshGear, together with the battery pack, the two unique inventions that made this trip around the world possible.
The consumption of this motorcycle in combination with the SmeshGear is about 1: 13,3. This means that they can cover 13,3 kilometers with 1kWh of energy.
