Italian Volt’s debut model, the Lacama, isn’t the most beautiful motorcycle that we have ever seen, but the Italian brand certainly has done a good job making a stylish machine for motorcycle enthusiasts.
Capable of hiding up to 15 kWh of batteries in its brick-like case, the Italian Volt Lacama does a good job of tackling one of the biggest design problems that motorcycle manufacturers face with electrics: styling the massive battery packs that these machines require.
Taking things a step further though, Italian Volt will offer the Lacama in several different form-factors, with owners able to choose from options that include café racer, scrambler, and roadster designs.
The Lacama’s 94hp / 152 lbs•ft motor should be enough to propel the bikes 540 lbs bulk to reasonable speeds, and before you snub your nose at those performance figures, consider what the usual tech-spec fare is for bikes in the post-authentic realm.
Don’t let the stylish lines fool you though, the Lacama packs some decent tech, including a full TFT dash, which includes GPS mapping and smartphone integration.
Each bike is bespoke to the owner’s wants and needs, though pricing should be around €35,000 with the shown Öhlins suspension and Brembo brakes.
Italian Volt hopes to begin selling the Lacama throughout Europe and North America, though that statement seems to be mostly wishes and rainbows at this point in time. Still, we think they’ll see a good response to their debut machine, if they can truly bring it to market in production form.
