Saroléa Returns… With Electric Carbon Fiber Motorcycle


Originally published on Gas2.

sarolea-sp7-full-1

After a 50 year hiatus, Belgium’s oldest motorcycle brand Saroléa is making a triumphant return with an electric cafe racer made from carbon fiber. Light, powerful, and sexy in an industria cafe racer sorta way, the Saroléa SP7 introduced itself to the world this past Saturday, and will make its racing debut at the Isle of Man TT Zero later this year.

The unpainted monotube frame is made entirely from carbon fiber, though the SP7 still comes in at 400 pounds. That’s due to a presumably-large battery pack that makes up most of the motorcycle’s body and an electric motor churning out 180 horsepower and 295 ft-lbs of torque. That’s more get-up-and-go than the Mercedes B-Class Electric, which tips the scales at over 3,800 pounds. This setup allows the SP7 to accelerate from 0 to 62 MPH in 2.8 seconds, less time than it probably took you to read this sentence that I deliberately drew out, but you get the picture.

Saroléa ain’t messin’ around, and they’re ready to prove it at the Isle of Man TT Zero in a little over a month’s time. They’ll have plenty of competition from an elite group of electric motorcycle pioneers, and the 2014 edition of the TT Zero already has plenty to recommend it.

The revival of an iconic motorcycle recalling the popular look of cafe racers makes it that much better.
