EICMA2022, the biggest European show for motorbikes and motorscooter took place in Milan, Italy.
1.Swapping stations are the hot topic of the show: all displayed swapping stations mainly for 48V systems.
2.EICMA is about Micromobility: The motorbike industry naturally softens towards the neighbouring product segments: Lots of e-bikes, pedelecs, minicars and electric kick scooter were shown.
3.Motorcycle heritage brands go electric.
4.A hot on-going topic in the electric motorbike/-scooter industry is the discussion: High-voltage (> 60 V) or low-voltage systems (<60V). What is the better design for the application? Aspects like efficiency, costs, handling, EMC and certification are factored into the discussion. (We will cover more about this topic in a separate post.)
