That electric 2WD in full

Rebranded to Armotia, this is the finished version of the VisionAR we showed you yesterday

YESTERDAY we dug up some intriguing patent images that led us to a 'coming soon' webpage for Italian firm VisionAR and its forthcoming two-wheel-drive bike.

It turns out the bike has been revealed under different name - the Armotia Due - and is set to be available in ‘R’ supermoto and ‘X’ enduro forms. Thanks to reader ComicalFarce for the tip.

Top speed is a somewhat disappointing 55mph dropping to 50mph on the enduro version.
