Project Background

In 2012, during a motorcycle adventure in the United States, the idea arose to develop an electric adventure motorcycle, capable of travelling to the most challenging places on earth. In 2014 this idea became more concrete and become one of the internal development projects of Fransiscó

This project brings together the passion for adventure motorcycles, advanced lightweight & concept engineering and sustainability. 

The Objective

The adventure motorcycle is both an excelent demonstrator project and a project to pioneer new principles and ideas. Eventually there is the ambition to bring the project forward into an actual exclusive product.  

We set ourselves some challenging objectives:

  • Leave nothing but tireprints
    • No emissions while riding
    • No waste during production
  • Be fully customisable and updateable to the rider
  • The comfort and smart storage of a heavy adventure bike
  • The dynamics and nimbleness of a lightweight motorcross bike
  • Be a work of art on 2 wheels

The Result

The electric adventure motorcycle project has gained a lot of accolades over the years. In 2015 Fransiscó won the Additive World Design Challenge with an optimised motorcycle swingarm.
