This made it’s way to me through facebook last week, but it’s just so cool I felt it warranted a quick post. Here’s a quote from the Tacita website:
The “Tacita project” ( from Tàcita, Latin name of the Roman goddess of silence ) springs from the desire to develop a motorbike which respects the environment and the people
around us, yet being a true machine for real off-roading.
After twenty years of passion for both recreational and competitive enduro, our goal was to build the perfect electric enduro bike, which would be able to compete with traditional motorbike combustion engines, giving sensations of pure riding, yet being moved by a completely “zero-emission” electric engine.
Tacita was born in 2009, to produce a new enduro bike with electric propulsion performance, whilst being innovative and unique in its characteristics.
Since then, our effort has focused on research, engineering and design, to create an Italian bike with temperament, unique in its kind.
The result is the new “T-RACE”: passion, nature, strength, silence, respect, emotions.
