Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Yes.. i agree that that statement is a bit much... Then why perpetuate false information? but The three-door hatchback weighs just 2,500 pounds. A Ford Fusion, which is about the same size, weighs 1,200 pounds more than the Kestrel. This increases fuel efficiency by 25 to 30 percent over traditiona...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

ok.. have u looked at the Lotus or the Ford or the Kestral? They made it into limited production. At the time the material and the electric drive train was not available ... but now that Tesla has proved there is a market.. Looks like the Kestral and the Lotus uses hemp for the panels, which I said...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Hemp 10x stronger than steel? Sorry, but that's just not true. Hemp might flex 10 times as much steel before breaking, but that doesn't make it 10x times stronger than steel. Big difference, and one wants a frame nearly as stiff as possible. Yes.. i agree that that statement is a bit much... but Th...

most any fiber composites would be better than aluminum, which uses huge amounts of energy to process..
Yep. Can be sexy and perform as well. Entire body of Lotus made of hemp.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

It appears that you are getting the required strength by adding bulk (legitimate strategy), do you think that will work with the much more contact chassis required on a dirt bike? That scooter is anything but svelte. Personally I like composites, they are easier to repair than aluminum provided you...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

A quick search shows hemp is not that great of a fiber for strength. Flax is quite a bit better. Fiberglass is more than 3x stronger. And CF at 4127 MPa is about 4.5x stronger using the most optimistic hemp MPa on your chart, and it's 7.5x using the lower value. The hemp angle seems more like a mar...

Why are they saying "Carbon fiber like hemp monocoque frame" are they not going to use the standard sur ron aluminum frame?
Hemp is less expensive, lighter and cradle to cradle better fort he environment.

Make it like a Sur-ron except with better geo, suspension, brakes, and front wheel.
And to me, most importantly, room for a proper rear tire.
Yes. I agree. Will be similar to this.
