OFR-M1 Electric Motorcycle Puts a Spin On Minimalist Design

Electric scooters are popping up left and right, which makes one wonder what the future holds for the good old motorcycle. In the ever-growing electric-vehicle market, it appears that the unfortunate reality of prioritizing practicality over exhilarating performance has all but taken center stage.    The fact that manufacturers are working towards adapting motorcycles into the future age of electrification is refreshing, even if some EV models pale in comparison to their ICE counterparts. A great example of this is this super sleek electric dual-sport from Offset Motorcycles, an EV startup based in Denmark. OFR-M1 puts a sporty twist on the principle of less is more with its electric two-wheeler.    The OFR-M1 is described by Offset Motorcycles as a lightweight off-road electric motorcycle. The bike's simple design indicates that it is an effective, no-frills electric all-arounder. Offset Motorcycles has incorporated in this bike state-of-the-art technology that makes its powertrain fully exposed and easy to see.     An electric motor with high performance, three-phase, mid-drive, can be found under the rider's seat. This air-cooled IPM PMS motor features high power output and efficiency, according to the manufacturer. There are 25kW, or 33.5 horsepower, in ICE nomenclature.    The founder and CEO of Offset Motorcycles, Jakob Kistorp, expressed his excitement over the unveiling of the company's newest creation. "We have spent many months perfecting our product vision, and the outcome is a reflection of that." As far as range is concerned, the OFR-M1 gets a 6.2kWH battery pack that promises 1.5 hours of fun off-road riding. It's important to note, however, that the OFR-M1 is not a street-legal electric motorcycle, so it can only be used off-road.    From 2022, pre-orders will be taken for the Offset OFR-M1.
