In-wheel electric engine frees motorcycle designers

EV-X7.jpgBy using an electromagnet/permanent-magnet hybrid motor that fits in the back wheel, the EV-X7’s designers were free to create a feet-forward motorcycle with a low center of gravity. While it doesn’t look like the handling’s currently up to much, this is an intriguing concept. Imagine bikes free from the constraints carried by a traditional engine. The EV-X7 is just a concept, but its creators intend soon to bring an electric scooter to market using a similar engine configuration. A video follows the jump.
