An Electric Motorcycle Designed by Students from the Université de Sherbrooke

emus_logoA team of about 20 students from Université de Sherbrooke unveiled the prototype for a high-performance electric motorcycle at the MégaGÉNIALE exhibition.

motoThe culmination of a two-year project, EMUS – Electric Motorcycle Université de Sherbrooke – has a range of 45 km when racing. The lithium-polymer battery module is manufactured through 3D printing and inserted into the motorcycle’s unibody aluminum chassis. The university team also designed a fully-electronic clutch – a first!

The electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and communications students who participated in the project will carry out the first on-track tests during summer 2015. The motorcycle can reach speeds of up to 250 km/h.

The 2014 MégaGÉNIALE exhibition, held on December 2 and 3, presented 39 completed design projects and functional prototypes from graduating students in civil, chemical, biotechnology, electrical, and computer engineering from the Université de Sherbrooke.
