CALGARY — Exro Technologies Inc. a clean technology company has initiated a partnership with Untitled Motorcycles to demonstrate the advantages of Exro’s patented Coil Driver technology in Untitled Motorcycles’ award-winning XP Zero electric motorcycle.
In entering this partnership, the two companies will collaborate to integrate Exro’s 100 Volt Coil Driver technology into limited edition XP Zero electric motorcycles. Exro will provide technology and integration support.
“The XP represents a vision of the future of motorcycling, unrestrained by the legacy of a soon-obsolete technology, making it a natural fit for Exro’s technology,” said Hugo Eccles, founder and design director of Untitled Motorcycles in a statement.
“We’ve been working on a race version of the XP and, with Exro, we have a technology partner that can help us take things to the next level.”
According to Exro, tests show a 25 per cent and 15 per cent bump in power and torque respectively. The XP Zero already accelerates 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds—faster than a Ferrari F50 or McLaren F1 LM —and currently produces an impressive 140ftlb of torque, which is almost twice that of a Ducati Panigale V4R. The modified XP Zero fleet will be boosted to an incredible 162ftlb.
“To put it in context, that’s the same torque as a Lotus Exige S, but in a vehicle that’s 1,600lbs lighter,” said Eccles in a statement.
“We are excited to partner with Untitled Motorcycles and expand our work in the electric motorcycle market,” said Sue Ozdemir, CEO of Exro in a statement.
“The XP Zero is extraordinary in how it looks and performs, and our Coil Driver technology will elevate the XP’s performance even further. This was a huge year for electric motorcycle launches and we’re proud to contribute to the progress in the sector.”
The company plans to host the unveiling of the XP Zero motorcycle, with Exro’s Coil Driver technology inside at the CES show in Las Vegasbetween January 5 and 8, 2022.
