    Default RMK E2: An electric, hubless motorcycle from Finland

    Finland has paved its way into manufacturing motorcycles and that too with an electric one. But their motorcycle, in addition to being electric, possesses another quirk. The RMK E2 is a hubless motorcycle that has a unique rear-wheel setup and that allows the manufacturers to bring down the weight.

    The RMK E2 weighs about 200kg and claims to churn out 67bhp of power and is capable of crossing the 100mph barrier. Power will be transmitted to the rear wheel by three cables, not by any chain or belt.

    According to the company, this electric bike has a range of 120-150 miles in one single charge. The battery can be charged to 80% in just 2 hours. The RMK E2 is also equipped with regenerative braking which in turn will recharge the battery when the rider applies the brake. The rear-wheel braking setup is somewhat different from conventional setup as you will need your left to use rear brakes in this hubless motorcycle.

    The RMK E2 is fitted with meager, present-day bodywork which accompanies a modern, Tesla-like computerized instrument group with inherent route mounted over its 'tank'.

    Requests are now being taken for the £24,000 machine. The organization says it plans to produce 4000 bicycles every year by 2025 and furthermore, says it will circulate bicycles in the UK next, despite the fact that the final changes are yet to be concluded.
