This New Electric Folding Motorbike Could be The Perfect Vehicle For Apartments

Icoma is a Japanese brand that exhibited its Tatamel electric motorbike at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2023) this week in Las Vegas. It claims that it comes with clean and convenient transport in a minimal design that folds up when not in use. It can be charged by a regular power outlet. After three hours of charging, it can ride for nearly 20 miles at speeds of up to 25 mph.

“You don’t need any parking space, you can push it in the house,” a representative for the company tells Interesting Engineering. “Especially in Tokyo, there’s no space, so it’s very important.”

The bike features can be customized and have 3D-printed parts to enable easier tweaking during the order process.

“It’s like a smartphone case,” the representative says.

Icoma’s stand at CES 2023 highlighted a TV panel, which means riders can roll up and host an impromptu movie screening out on the street. The riders could even attach a solar panel to charge the bike.

The weight of the bike is 110 pounds and supports a load of up to 220 pounds. At its full size, the bike measures around 39 inches tall, 25 inches wide and 48 inches long. When folded, it measures 27 inches tall, 10 inches wide and 27 inches long.

The lithium iron phosphate battery has a capacity of 12 amp-hours, or around 0.6 kilowatt-hours. The cell is rated for around 2,000 to 3,000 cycles.

This product is a perfect solution for people who do not have a lot of storage in their accommodation for parking vehicles. It is also easily portable so it can be taken to other places as well. 

For those looking to store an electric vehicle safely in their house, the Tatamel could be the ideal solution.
