German electric motorcycle company Novus has unveiled a new electric motorcycle in Las Vegas. The Novus electric motorcycle is awesome. The bike appears to be the cross between a bicycle and a moped, with skinny wheels and tyres and no lights, or number plate. The electric bike has one of the most modern carbon fibre frames ever seen on a production electric motorcycle.
The most visually remarkable part of the NOVUS electric motorcycle is the frame. It is a carbon monocoque; it performs doubly duty as both the structural exoskeleton and elegant body of the bike. The 3-motorbike is lighter than steel, aluminum or any alien frame material.
