Arcimoto, Inc. (NASDAQ: FUV), makers of affordable, practical, and joyful pure electric vehicles for everyday commuters and fleets, has announced that it will debut the Roadster Prototype at the 80th Annual Daytona Bike Week, the world’s largest motorcycle rally.
The Roadster is built on Arcimoto’s patented three-wheel, all-electric platform and features dual-motor front-wheel drive, instant torque, and a fully-connected seating stance.
The Roadster seats and accessories are being developed by Corbin-Pacific, the leader in motorcycle seats and saddles, and will be hand-built in the U.S, using proprietary, purpose-built materials and patented manufacturing processes.
Corbin was founded by motorcycle industry legend Mike Corbin, who invented the Corbin Sparrow three-wheel electric vehicle and holds more than 80 patents in his name.
Arcimoto Founder and CEO, Mark Frohnmayer, says: “For 80 years, Daytona Bike Week has been ruled by some of the most amazing bikes on the planet, almost all of them powered by fossil fuels. We think it’s time for a breath of fresh air. With the Roadster, we’re stoked to introduce Daytona to a completely new way of riding, a three-wheel thrill ride unlike anything else on the road today. We’re delighted to partner with Mike Corbin and Corbin-Pacific to showcase our pure electric vehicles at their flagship retail location in the heart of the world’s largest motorcycle rally.”
Every Arcimoto vehicle is built at the Arcimoto Manufacturing Plant in Eugene, Oregon.
