Essence Motocycles


At ESSENCE Motocycles we build thrilling 100% electric motorcycles merging tradition and innovation. Concept e-raw is the translation of our vision. e-raw is born at the intersection of mechanical and electrical universes in order to define a new motorcycling experience : intense and long lasting. Concept e-raw goes beyond the simple use of a new energy, it is the start of a new paradigm. In order to change paradigm, we went back to the very beginning, the essence of motorcycles, to take a new direction. e-raw connects innovation to tradition with a state-of-the-art powertrain and a cycle part based on fundamental mechanics. Cultivating the value of simplicity, we simplified the system, because what is simple is robust and what is robust, is long lasting. We got rid of all sensors that tend to take over our motorcycles, robbing our thrill. Taking the opposite view of the technology addiction trend, we developed concept e-raw in order to reactivate our senses. This is the way we build motorcycles.
