BICESTER, England, May 28, 2015 /CNW/ - Saietta Group today set out its vision to be a leader in the transformation of vehicles away from internal combustion engines to highly efficient electric drivetrains.
In a clear statement of intent, Saietta revealed a teaser image of a ground-breaking, high-performance electric motorbike that's set to spearhead a new era for riders.
Code-named NGS (Next Generation Saietta), it will be the first in a family of bikes from the newly-named Saietta Group, following the recent merger of Agility Global and Agni Motors.
"Saietta intends to shake up vehicle sectors including cars, scooters, motorcycles and tuk tuks, with electric drivetrains that surpass what can be achieved with internal combustion engines. NGS demonstrates our core competence in design, engineering, integration and manufacture in this field," says Lawrence Marazzi, Saietta Group Co-Founder.
"Saietta R was our 8th and last generation of prototype. NGS takes us to a whole new level with technological step-changes across the bike delivering electrifying performance, unmatched range, extensive personalisation options and a highly distinctive, iconic presence. NGS is an exclusive, premium priced flagship for the Group, showcasing precisely what Agility and Agni are capable of as a newly merged entity."
Arvind Rabadia, Saietta Group Co-Founder, adds: "We have a family of electric motors which are highly efficient, lightweight and compact, delivering class-leading power-to-weight ratios and levels of efficiency, making them ideal for vehicles. Our motors have powered over 80% of the winning electric racebikes globally, set electric powerboat world speed records and even powered the first manned electric helicopter!"
"After over a century of making small refinements to the internal combustion engine, vehicles are well overdue a step-change to a more efficient, cost effective and sustainable electric future. We will release more information on NGS over the coming months and interested parties can receive exclusive updates by signing up to our newsletter at saietta.com."
