Italian Volt Lacama returns to life at EICMA 2021 thanks to Tazzari


At the beginning of 2021, Tazzari had entered the electric motorcycle sector with the acquisition of Italian Volt, a company that had developed Lacama , a battery-powered two-wheeler that was originally designed so that future owners could get to customize it in many of its parts in order to have a “unique” product. A model presented several years ago but which, then, had never arrived on the road.

One of the objectives of the acquisition by Tazzari was to bring this electric motorcycle is making its debut. And something seems to be moving as the version of Lacama signed by Tazzari will be present at EICMA 2021. It is a small “appetizer” of what will be announced during the 2022 .

MODULAR MOTORCYCLE

A prototype of the electric motorcycle . According to what has been reported, Lacama will continue to remain faithful to its original project. The bike, therefore, will continue to be a modular two-wheeler . In fact, it will be possible to change its design both when ordering and later.

Conceptually changing the saddle, the body design or the front part will be like changing the cover of a smartphone.

In addition, the manufacturer also makes it known that options and new bodywork components will all be backwards compatible. The frame, on the other hand, will be made of a single aluminum casting to ensure both the necessary strength to support the battery pack and both to promote driving pleasure.

The electric motorcycle can rely on a new electric motor positioned in the rotation fulcrum of the rear swingarm with direct belt transmission. The powertrain, weighing only 11, 5 kg, is capable of supply 110 kW and well 280 Nm of torque. These are significant values ​​that if confirmed for the production model should allow very high performance.

As regards the battery pack, it was only said that it will feature a double aluminum casting shell. Furthermore, it will adopt new technologies developed by the Tazzari EV team to improve performance, energy efficiency, durability and safety both in the driving phase and in the recharging phase. Autonomy values ​​have not been declared.
