A few weeks before the EICMA show in Milan, SMRE Umbertide (PG) presented a preview of their first electric motor called the IET engine (Integrated Electric Transmission) for bikes with six-speed gearbox and clutch.
The project is the result of over two thousand hours of work of the team of engineers led by SMRE Engineering.
The IET motor can be mounted on any type of motorcycle and uses a special electric motor with a hydraulic multi-disc clutch and a six-speed gearbox.
The engine is managed by an electronic control unit and advanced software that allows you to map the engine for various driving needs or applications.
