The first two models of the Can-Am all-electric motorbike portfolio are the Can-Am Origin and Can-Am Pulse, which were just unveiled by Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP), the parent organization of the Canadian three-wheeler manufacturer Can-Am. Because electric motorbikes are becoming more and more popular, BRP is changing the power dynamic and opening the door to a new generation of riders and electric vehicle enthusiasts.
“Today, our story of innovation reaches new heights with the reveal of market-shaping electric products that will enhance consumer experience on the road. Half a century ago, Can-Am roared to victory on the track and the trail, and today, a new legacy begins. With the Can-Am Origin and Can-Am Pulse, the first two models of our electric 2-wheel family, we are gearing up to reclaim our motorcycle heritage by crafting thrilling riding experiences for a whole new generation.”
The Can-Am Origin pays tribute to Can-Am's on and off-road heritgae. This dual-purpose bike is designed to bring a novel excitement to both the street and the trail for a more modern multi-terrain experience. On the other hand, the Can-Am Pulse is a well-balanced, agile motorcycle that aims to provide riders an exhilarating riding experience and transform their normal commute into an electrifying joyride.
Both electric motorcycles are built to showcase cutting-edge technology and feature a modern aesthetic. Both are accessible and easy for both inexperienced and seasoned riders to use and ride. Riders do not require a standard clutch or transmission in order to ride, as is the case with the majority of electric bikes. Can-Am also emphasizes the operation's close to vibration-free nature and the power supply's accuracy and smoothness, especially under low-speed situations.
The brand-new Rotax E-POWER electric motor, which generates highway-worthy speeds with tons of horsepower and torque, powers both models. Every model has a special design, ergonomics, and capacity to satisfy various demands. BRP plans to publish the full specs in August 2023, just in time for Can-Am to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The two new electric models are expected to begin rolling off showroom floors by 2024.
