heal.generalDescription
Today’s electric bikes, which are based on bicycle frames, do not attract the typical motorcycle riders due to their low performance and their design. The goal of this project, is to design an electric motorcycle, mostly used in the city, that would be addressed to motorcycle riders who desire an economically efficient and environmental friendly solution for their everyday transportation but at the same time are looking for a special design identity and style for their vehicle.

heal.abstract
The following paper is a Thesis, written for the MSc in Strategic Product Design. The purpose of this project is to research the engineering and design identity of the electric motorcycle of the 21st century. As part of the project, a research has been conducted, regarding the history of motorcycles and engineering that shaped their current visual form. Following, in this paper, there has been presented the current technology in electric motorcycles with production models and brands that are investing in electric vehicles. The main goal of this paper, is to present a design proposal for an electric motorcycle. Based on the engineering research on electric motors for electric vehicles, a reader will find a full description of the parts that assembly an electric motorcycle, the important points that need to be addressed while designing a concept for an electric motorcycle and the trade-offs that must be resolved regarding the geometry, ergonomics and performance. At the final chapters, our concept electric motorcycle takes form with sketches and different variations. A final concept is being developed further and presented through Adobe Photoshop renders. For completing this project, I would like to thank my supervisor, Professor Georgios Liamadis, as he trusted me with a project that exceeded the available time frame and guided me through this process with his experience in Automotive Design. I would also like to thank Mr. Errikos Ampatzoglou, for his tutoring in vehicle design sketching and rendering and his professional experience and advise in a concept design follow through pipe line.
