There are somethings in life just make me go hmmm. Well when I first saw a glimpse of this machine a few years ago thanks to our friends over at Bikeexif, I was intrigued. 2 years later, Essense Motocycles has now shown us the finish E-Raw Electric Motorcycle. I know its not for everyone, but with rise of electric powered vehicles, we are excited to see builders taking the risk. This one is just that. Essense Motocycles is showing the world something different with the design and artistic vision in the E-Raw Electric Motorcycle.
Completely designed and built from the ground up, the E-Raw was a huge feat for the crew over at Essense Motocycles. The beautifully fabricated custom trellis frame was completely designed around the batteries that power this machine. The electric motor which is perfectly fitted into the pivot of custom cnc machined swingarm, provides for a clean look.
Onto the performance side of things, Essense didn’t spare any expense. Ohlins front forks and a rear shock are used to help harness the torque of this beast. To help stop, they went with Beringer brakes all around. This includes Beringer calipers, rotors and brake master cylinders. A beautiful set of custom machined triple clamps hold the forks up front. For that classic look, a set of Excel spoke wheels were used.
Ok now on to the best part of the bike that you are probably starring at, the seat. Yes, you are probably thinking way. My question is why not? Made from plywood and shaped using surfboard building techniques, it is definitely different and artistic. Although by just looking at it you are probably saying you can’t sit on that, I bet is more comfortable then you think. If it was my bike, I would probably add some race foam to it just for longer rides, but I think the lines are just beautiful.
We can’t wait to see this thing in person when it is finally released. We have yet to ride an electric motorcycle but have heard they are amazing. Be sure to go checkout their website and following them on social media for more news about this amazing build.
