“Introducing Arc, a ground-breaking electric motorcycle company which takes a detour from the norm in search of fresh terrain and new frontiers.We have created a machine that feels like second nature. It offers an all-new connection with the road and the environment. The Arc Vector is the most advanced electric motorcycle ever brought to market; one which utilizes exotic materials, thoroughbred componentry, cutting-edge architecture and technological innovations that have never been applied to two-wheeled transport before. All that, wrapped in a breathtakingly futuristic body with post-modern nods to café racers past.”
Arc reported its new modular battery construction, whose background IP was derived and patented while incubating in JLR’s Whitespace Innovation Team, aims to ensure that weight and package space can be optimized together.
“The revolutionary human-machine interface technology will seek to re-connect the rider with the machine. Riding cues lost through the transition to electric intend to be given back to the rider via a bespoke jacket and helmet.”
It was also revealed that since its pre-launch, Arc’s Vector has notably drawn global interest with over 590 news articles covering its release across 55 countries plus over 130 sales inquiries in relation to the limited 399 units which we are planning to produce.
“The original bike concept was incubated within Jaguar Land Rover’s White Space innovation arm, led by award-winning engineer Mark Truman. He subsequently founded Arc Vehicle with the goal of bringing the product to life and to develop the business into adjacent segments.”
Funds from the Crowdcube round will be used to continue the growth and development of Arc’s vehicles. The campaign is set close at the end of July.
