My neighbor Larry Sizer sent me a video- and as a BMW rider, who was already in love with the C-1 model enclosed scooter,
this made it look like a half finished idea.
Meet the EcoCycle, made by:
PERAVES Ltd. was founded in 1974 and produces MOTOR VEHICLES and INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES(ICE). Since 1987 we are market leaders in CABIN MOTORCYCLES. Presently the MonoTracer® with conventional BMW-ICE is in production. A BATTERY ELECTRIC VEHICLE (BEV) with ELECTRIC motor is being tested with a street legal PROTOTYPE and a market launch, E-Tracer®, is imminent. A HYBRID-MODEL with PERAVES-SUPERBALLMOTOR® is also under development.
(sorry about the ALL CAPS- the SWISS must think it MAKES THINGS SEEM MORE IMPORTANT).
Here is the video:
The EcoCycle is a converted BMW bike- that’s fully enclosed, with outrigger wheels that deploy when the bike slows down. No more rainsuits, or scuffed up dress shoes (and people wonder why I wear jeans most of the time- it’s because I ride most of the time). Obviously, fuel economy is on par or better than a motorcycle- meaning an instant doubling of most peoples fuel economy.
This is the kind of forward thinking manufacturing we need to be attracting to Dayton- and putting this city back on the map.
