Yatri Motorcycle – Project Zero design
Project Zero is a premium electric motorcycle inspired by the Cafe Racer culture originating in the 60’s and designed to showcase the benefits of an electric power train in an urban environment. The starting point for the design of the bike was to give the freedom to travel for the people who wanted to switch to an electric mode of transport. Yatri’s Project Zero features an exceptionally strong carbon fiber and steel chassis.
Targeting the urban areas, the Project Zero upgrades the cafe racer design with modern connectivity tools and an elegant, forward-looking aesthetic that is sure to turn heads.
Another unique and important design feature is their Yatri Hub (app) which you can access through their beautiful 7″ Full-HD display. This will equip you with all the necessary telemetry data along with a deeper insight into stats like the amount of money you’ve saved on petrol and the amount of CO2 you’ve NOT emitted into the environment by choosing to ride this motorcycle. You also get real-time tracking and navigation.
By combining cutting edge technology with modern aesthetics, Yatri is designing electric motorcycles that will provide commuters with a premium riding experience while eliminating pollution in the urban landscape.
Many people quoted that Project Zero is the sibling of Tesla’s Cyber Truck.
