It took a team racing Ferrari sports cars to create and bring to a race paddock a quarto of e-bikes inspired by the cars the team races.
AIM Autosport Team FXDD Racing With Ferrari announced a co-branding partnership on a new project that promotes technologies from two forms of motive power; the motorsport design spectacle of the Ferrari 458 Italia Grand Am GT spec racing car, and that of the eco-friendly e-bikes designed by Amego Electric Vehicles.
The collaboration effort begins with the design element of the Amego Electric Bike that shares inspirations – the promoters say – common to each and every Ferrari ever designed, built, and raced.
The bicycles can be seen at the AIM Autosport Team FXDD racing transporter in the paddock area. The showcase includes a combination of the “Brave” and “Bold” models. Attending motorsport fans are provided a close-up view of the product and an opportunity to test drive the bikes.
Amego’s e-scooters and e-bikes are equipped with an exclusive and patented gel lead acid battery and have the option to upgrade to premium lithium-ion phospohate batteries. Acording to Amego, the gel lead acid batteries are good for 500 charging cycles when discharged 80 percent; with less than 1 percent per month standing self discharge. When stored, Amego’s battery only needs to be charged every six months to prevent damage and has no memory effect.
