British company Arc Vehicle has teased a motorcycle sensory experience ahead of the scheduled global unveiling on November 6 at EICMA 2018, in Milan, Italy.
The British electric motorbike manufacturer will introduce the world’s first fully-electric café racer with what they are calling Human Machine Interface (HMI), and promise that it will change motorcycling forever.
Arc’s HMI promises to marry a new helmet complete with a sophisticated heads-up display reminiscent of those utilised by fighter pilots.
Mark Truman, CEO, Arc Vehicle Ltd
“Technology, performance, safety and experience come together like never before on two wheels. The Vector is more than just the world’s most premium electric motorcycle; it’s the world’s first motorcycle with integrated multi-sensory HMI (Human Machine Interface), it’s an innovative heads-up display helmet and it’s a tactile riding suit – all making up the most involving motorcycle experience on the market today.”
Situated in Coventry the British company counts an ensemble of leading industry professionals in their fields amongst its team.
An idea born out of founder Mark Truman’s previous role as head of Jaguar Land Rover’s Whitespace department – a skunkworks division for ‘crazy ideas with commercial opportunities’ – the engineer assembled a top team, including a MotoGP chief engineer, and FEA analysis specialists, to push the idea through to development stage and ultimately production. The project has been running for two years with Arc Vehicle Ltd being established 18 months ago.
Multi-year financial backing has been obtained from a number of blue-chip beneficiaries, including Jaguar Land Rover’s investment fund InMotion Ventures.
The teaser image from Arc Vehicle showcases a forward-thinking design for the equally like-minded rider; the silhouette showing just a glimpse of the level of style on offer, while being formed from high-quality materials. Incredible performance characteristics combine with sustainability, sensory stimuli and style to make Vector a unique package and proposition for riders who dare to be different.
More details will be announced in the run-up to EICMA on 6th November.
