EuroPapi Goes Green at the 2011 Laguna Seca MotoGP
This year was a special event for EuroPapi as we were part of the Spanish e-power LGN team.
This project, known as e-Moto, was created and developed by LGN Tech Design, a spin-off company that has its origins in a line of research begun in the Laboratorio de Maquinas (MAQLAB - Machine Laboratory) of UC3M and receives support from the University's Vice-Chancellor's Office of Research through the Business Incubator UC3M Science Park.

This is a vehicle that was conceived as an electric motorcycle from the very beginning, with battery recharging systems that offer quite remarkable results, and which are similar to those of an automobile. Among the technical features of the prototype, its light weight (145 Kg.) in comparison with other existing models stands out, as does its alternating current motor, which boasts a maximum 95 horsepower. It also features a system for recharging its batteries when braking and an innovative front suspension based on a system that has already been tested in other research projects.
The creators of this project recognize that in this phase of the development of Spanish electric motorcycles, the support of public and private institutions is needed, in order to allow for the evolution of what will be the first Spanish company to develop high performance electric motorcycles.
