This new CAF-E Motorcycle Hybrid design by Tim Cameron, is just a concept design, may soon go into production. The engine is mated with an electric motor via electronically controlled continuously variable transmission. This sends power to the rear wheels through the shaft drive.
The entire system is similar to a Hybrid Synergy you would find in your average Toyota Prius. But in this case, it’s pumping the bike with that extra power to drive it faster.
We will keep a look out for the real thing when it rolls out some day. But our guess is that, this thing is going to cost you dearly. Think high $80 to $90k. Which completely destroys and “G” bragging rights it might be after.
