The Liion electric bike is a new project

After the success of Axiis, the three have taken their profits and invested them into building an electric motorcycle brand they’re calling Liion, with a supermoto as their first model.

It has a CNC-machined alloy frame, single-sided swingarm and carbon-fibre bodywork, with a 132bhp electric motor producing 177lb.ft of torque – not bad from a complete bike that weighs just 133kg.

For now there’s no pricing or availability as the three are looking for investment to turn their bike into a production machine. Exciting times for innovation in biking!
