The advent of the electric motorbike industry has allowed for the emergence of a new design prototype that has nothing to do with classic motorcycle aesthetics and all to do with rewriting the laws of the industry, with various degrees of success.

However, there seem to be a few brand-new labels whose primary focus appears to be on passion and adventure, even though they are still carving out their own niche in terms of appearance. The DC100 from Davinci is a good example.

Thanks to a variety of electrical sensors intended to maximize rider safety, Davinci calls the DC100 “a robot on two wheels.” The Davinci DC100 features more than 1,000 microchips and 200 sensors to keep tabs on the environment, the status of the vehicle’s movement, the state of the roads, the temperature of the battery and engine, the lean angle, and other factors. For maximum efficiency, the battery and motor are monitored for temperature, and a six-axis Electronic Measurement Unit (EMU) tracks pitch, yaw, and lean angle in conjunction with the traction control and ABS.

Driving assistance is a function of the Davinci DC100. By hitting the “D” (for “Drive”), the bike will gradually accelerate to roughly four miles an hour just before releasing all of its power.

The DC100 can detect the angle of inclination when motorcyclists start climbing an uphill route and instantly engage the Hill Start Assist, which propels the motorbike ahead by providing strong torque at low speed. In order to maximize balance and energy recovery on downhill pathways, the DC100 helps riders by automatically turning on the Hill Descent Control and reducing the speed to a maximum of 7 km/h (4 mph).

Regarding the other technologies of the Davinci DC100, its Battery Management System (BMS) can balance power consumption while riding, sense the ambient temperature, and track the real-time state of its battery pack. It also has a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), which can recover the vehicle’s kinetic energy as it brakes and lowers the brake pressure when the riders bring the vehicle to an abrupt halt. With the help of its electric power steering (EPS), Davinci has also transformed the DC100 into a complete self-balancing robot on wheels. The motorbike may be left unattended by its riders without risk of it falling.

The Davinci DC100’s peak torque of 850Nm, high speed of 200 km/h, peak power level of 100 kilowatts, and range of 400 km will thrill spec fans. According to Davinci, utilizing any fast charger, the motorbike battery may be charged to 85% capacity in just 15 minutes, and 100% capacity can be reached in just 30 minutes. The DC100 may be charged using a portable charger and conventional outlets if fast-charging power sources are not available; however, it will often take more time. The company is taking pre-sale orders for the DC100, priced at 26,000 Euros. (approx $26,921).

If riders require a dashboard, they may not need to care since they can simply use the Davinci app to link their phone to the motorcycle, set it down on the frame of the bike in the designated location, and instantly view riding statistics as well as vehicle and battery status. To allow additional functions like autonomous parking and remote calling, the Davinci DC100s will soon be equipped with a controller connected to the Davinci app. Your motorbike is within reach of your palm!
