Matra is not exactly a company you'd expect on the motorcycle exhibition, since they are a car manufacturer, or should I say, were a car manufacturer; They used to make race cars that won the 24 hours of Le Mans.

But they closed down, and now only a small team of designers have been working away at their future. And their future looks very interesting. At the Mondial, they showed for the first time their electric, hybrid, motorcycle, the MS1.

The MS1 is fully electric, but also has pedal power.

The brakes generate electricity, so when braking it will re-supply the bike with current.

Performance is very interesting. 45 kph speed limit (with pedal power), limited by law, it can go faster. With no pedal power, the MS1 has a range of 100 kms, with pedal power, limited to your performance.

The electric motorcycle is interesting for those living in the city, and needing to commute. Price will be around €3500.

More later.
