Meet This An Electric Bike Inspired By WWII Fighter Planes

As electric vehicles become more widespread, we’re becoming accustomed to seeing some unique things (both in a good and bad way). One such bike is Katalis’ new EV1000 electric bike, which was developed in partnership with TheArsenale, a prominent premium vehicle retailer in Indonesia. This motorcycle is based on WWII fighter planes from the 1940s.

The Katalis EV1000’s one-of-a-kind design will enchant you with just one glance. The bike’s skin is beautiful, riveted, and aircraft-inspired, and it conceals all of the bike’s components inside.

The suspension, bodywork, and solid wheel covers are all finished in a dark matte black hue, with vivid orange motifs inspired by TheArsenale adding a splash of colour to the otherwise sombre livery.

The small nuances, on the other hand, make this bike even more unique. Instead of a traditional ignition key, Katalis has installed a heavy machinery-style on-off switch on the EV1000. On the other side, an analogue voltage metre, inspired by massive machineries, struts its stuff.

The only “exposed” component here is the somewhat tall handlebar, which, when combined with the bike’s uncomfortable-looking seat, should result in an upright riding posture.

A 1kW brushless motor and a 2.1kWh battery pack are hidden beneath the bodywork. These allow the bike to reach a top speed of 80 kilometres per hour (50 miles per hour) and a range of 56 miles.

At both ends, KYB USD forks, twin shock absorbers, and single disc brakes serve as the foundation.

Apart from that, the corporation has been quiet about the weight, seat height, tyre size, or charging time, probably because this isn’t a mass-market product.

The Katalis EV100 does not appear to be a good value for money at $9,999, mainly because there are superior EVs available for much less. For a similar price, you can even obtain full-sized e-bikes.

Nonetheless, Katalis argues that the EV1000 will assist young people in making the transition from gas-powered motorcycles to electric bikes. However, we’re not sure ‘how’ with this price tag.
