VINS has announced its latest machine in the form of the EV-01 electric sports motorcycle. The bike is related to their Duecinquanta two-stroke machine we covered a few months back, although beneath the skin the two machines couldn’t be further removed!

Where the Duecinquanta has a race-bred two-stroke, 250cc engine at its heart, the new EV-01 is powered by an all-electric powertrain, lifted from the already successful range of Zero electric motorcycles.

As with Vins’ other motorcycles, the EV-01 is decked out in lashings of carbon fibre, and features a stunning carbon fibre monocoque frame linking together top-spec chassis components including an innovative carbon fibre fork set up. Thanks to the wide-reaching use of exotic materials, the diminutive motorcycle boasts a kerb weight of just 170kg, a figure that not many other current electric motorcycles can match!

Performance figures for the bike are equally as good, with a 125mph top speed from the 70hp, 150Nm motor. There’s no mention of range, although it should be around the 80-100 miles you’ll get from a stock Zero DS. Vins do confirm that the bikes recharge times will be around 10hrs from a standard three-pin plug and 2.5hrs if you use the optional charge tank and a DC fast charger though.
