Johammer 3

We recently stumbled upon a small Austrian-based company called Johammer. The firm is building an interesting futuristic-looking electric motorcycle: the Johammer J1. They launched the vehicle last year, but they recently ramp-up production and we are now seeing more of the vehicle reminiscent of a Star Wars pod racer with chopper-like handles.

The Johammer J1 is offered with two different battery pack options: 8.3 kWh and 12.7 kWh for 93 miles (150 km) and 125 miles (200 km) of range respectively.

The range is significant for an electric motorcycle and competitive with the likes of Zero Motorcycles and Victory, but it comes at a price: € 22,900 (~$26,000) for the bike with the 8.3 kWh battery pack and € 24,900 (~$28,000) for the 12.7 kWh option.

It’s definitely on the expensive side, but there’s certainly a market for this type of novel vehicle. Personally, I think it looks badass in black, but I have the feeling that the design falls in the love it or hate it spectrum.

The chassis is mainly made out of aluminum and has an overall weight of 178 kg (390 lb). It is powered by a DC-excited synchronous motor with single-stage transmission and regenerative braking capacity. The motor has a continuous power output of 11kW and a peak power output of 16kW.
