Evoke is testing modular new electric motorcycle batteries with 15 minute charging
Evoke Motorcycles has an impressive offering of moderately priced electric motorcycles. Now, the electric motorcycle startup is innovating even further with new, extremely fast charging batteries.
The new electric motorcycle batteries are designed to allow for ultra-fast charging. The company claims that the batteries can be recharged from 0-80% in just 15 minutes. Evoke’s current generation of batteries recharge with a wall charger in either 8 hours on 110V or 4 hours on 220V.
Evoke’s 2nd generation batteries are designed as a modular system intended for different applications. The company says they can be daisy-chained together for use in other small and medium-size electric vehicles.
Even just for electric motorcycles though, these batteries sound promising. For reference, Evoke’s current lineup of motorcycles includes bikes with approximately 19 kW (25 hp) motors and 7 kWh battery packs. Evoke’s motorcycles generally reach top speeds of around 80 mph (129 km/h). With prices in the $8,000 range, their performance and price both fall under the range of industry leader Zero Motorcycles, but above other budget-level imported electric motorcycles.
