I'm just back from the Paris Salon de la Moto 2013, the Paris based motorcycle exhibition. Just before setting off to go back home, I'll quickly show you one of the very few highlights or interesting things that you could see there. Almost all new motorcycles and scooters were already presented at the Milan Eicma exhibition, so there was nothing left to be presented in France. I will be showing you some interesting things, but nothing new.

Except.... The French motorcycle manufacturer that went bankrupt, and has since arisen from dead, Voxan Open link in a new window, had a stand and a press conference. Although I am not attending the press conference since it was later today, and I have a train to catch, they did have one motorcycle on display. Voxan has already made it known that they are going the electric route, so electric motorcycles.

The bike on display is a cruiser, styled after muscle bikes. It looks, and is, heavy. Called the Wattman, the motorcycle weighs 350 kilos!!

From the look of the bike, it's got power, lots of it. The 12.8 kWh Lithium ion battery generates 200 hp at 7500 to 10500 rpm.

The torque is an impressive 200 Nm delivered between 0 and 6000 rpm. Muscle bike indeed.
