Shocker: Patmont Motor Werks show radical new off-road bike

Shocker: A radical new battery-powered off-roader from PMW
Via AutoblogGreen

Patmont Motor Werks (PMW) has unveiled a radical new off-road motorcycle prototype, which is fitted with the company’s patented Cantilevered Independent Dynamic Linkless Indispension (CDLI, whew!!) suspension system. This battery-powered electric bike – named 'Shocker' – has been designed to function as a ‘tri-sport’ machine (street, dirt, and freestyle) that emits very little noise and zero emissions.

The PMW Shocker weighs 98kg and is powered by lithium-polymer batteries and a sealed, liquid-cooled DC brushless motor. And yes, the single-side front and rear suspension does seem quite interesting. If the bike does go into production, it will be built at PMW’s facility in Nevada, in the US.

The Shocker in action. Very cool...!
