Indian company Hero MotoCorp has developed a futuristic electric motorcycle with a hydrogen fuel cell and a host of innovative solutions..
The presented Hero iON model is equipped with a lithium-air battery (technology is still being improved), which has several times higher energy density than traditional lithium-ion.
The wheels are driven by electric motors with magnetic levitation, so there is no internal friction. Such a system allows you to effectively accelerate and brake. Speed control is done using a dedicated switch on the handles, not a rotary controller.
Another novelty is the magnetorheological damping system, which automatically adapts to the current road conditions. Instead of springs, the dampers are filled with a liquid whose viscosity changes depending on the voltage applied to it by the electromagnetic field controlled by the detectors. Gyroscopes and accelerometers also maintain balance..
The helmet is equipped with a display, where you can withdraw dashboard readings or watch structure of the setting.
No less interesting HyperTek motocycle with electric transmission recently introduced and Blackstone Tek.
