Type 601 'Alien'
The biggest problem with electric motorcycles is they're not as cheap to buy as petrol motorbikes. Consequently the aim of the 601 project was to make a 125cc-like electric motorcycle that could solve this problem by customising a factory production using 3d printing extensively to fabricate the parts that facilitate the reconstruction of the bike. The result came to a final price from 4.800€. This concept was homologated in early 2021 and is on sale from August 2021.

Type 402 'La Boheme'
Conceived with the name 'La Boheme', it's identity is the idea of a cheap, easy, artistic lifestyle of wandering around and having fun. To make it as affordable as possible, the basic donor bike is a well-tested Honda design from the 1980s and the method of reconstruction goes back to early aircraft designs of the 1920s. The result is a 45km/h moped with up to 400km range and a look that can be easily personalised. The final working prototype is patented and could be homologated for sale at a price around 4.500€.

Type 401 Not-naked naked (NNN) concept
A first shot at how to construct a new Type series of mopeds based on the idea of offering city speed and long range. The final design was going to be a naked bike, but ended up not being naked at all. The ideas about the donor bike for this concept as well as the method of construction were further developed forward into the Type 402.
Type 507 Cyberscooter
This concept is for a follow up 5-series electric scooter. The Tesla Cybertruck is a big lump and doesn't look like it'd be much use for quick trips around town. Our idea was to offer a matching Cyberscooter that can be carried on the back, and even charged there. This way you can use the advantage of the Cybertruck for long distance trips and the Cyberscooter for the 'last mile' where congestion and parking are problems. We're still waiting on a reply from Elon about this.
Production development of Čezeta
After developing the Type 506, we gained EU homologation and funding in mid-2018 to setup factory production. A first-series of 60 bikes were manufactured over 2 years until the project finished at the end of 2020. We're currently looking for a buyer to continue development of another series of this beautiful Czech scooter.

Type 506 Čezeta
A very long and complicated project to develop, manufacture and homoogate everything from the frame, body and brakes to the electronics and instruments locally in the Czech Republic for this rebirth of the legendary Čezeta scooter. The mode selector it featured has now become a standard part on all new electric motorbikes and scooters.
