BEIJING: China's Davinci Motor calls its DC100 electric motorcycle a "two-wheeled robot" which it plans to sell in the United States and Europe.
Davinci Motor chief operating officer Qi Wang said the advanced motorcycle promises an easier and safer riding experience compared to conventional bikes.
He said the DC100 was in fact a two-wheeled robot because it was built by following the logic of robotics development, with the machine having over 300 chips, over 200 sensors and an integrated vehicle control system which is able to perceive, calculate and execute.
Featuring numerous intelligent capabilities, the motorcycle can provide accurate information on road conditions, environment temperature, vehicle and battery status, and many other data that will be combined to precisely control its power system and so ensure an optimal performance under all conditions.
Since the product launch in Beijing on July 17, Davinci Motor claimed it has attracted widespread attention overseas, especially in Europe and the United States, where the development of electric motorcycles is moving at a faster clip.
It had recently attended the Nov 15-19 Automotive Tech Week in Novi, Michigan, virtually where it promoted its high-performance electric motorcycle.
At the event, Wang announced the company's plan to build an assembly plant in the United States, as well as a central hub in the Netherlands in late 2022 or 2023.
He also said Davinci Motor would open its first two showrooms, called the Davinci Labs, in the United States followed by more such showrooms in Europe.
Founded in 2013, Davinci Motor is a start-up that focuses on the research and development of robotic vehicles.
