The Italian brand usually produces racing cars and tunes production cars and motorcycles to racing specs. This time around, they have designed a motorcycle from ground up using an aerodynamic design with ducts meant to drive in cool air to its battery and electric motor.
The hubless technology gets rid of the drive chain, which is usually a source of inefficiency. This also enables the NGR to use regenerative braking–the kinetic energy from slowing down is used to drive power back into the batteries.
And if you notice, there are no gauges on the concept bike. Abarth intends to project performance data directly onto a heads-up display on the helmet’s visor.
