INTENDED SPECIFIC END USE
Inspiring people, contributing to speeding up the journey towards a zero emission society, combining excitement with responsibility.
Solar-powered wildlife conservation and improved anti-poaching efforts: For years, poaching has had devastating consequences for all wildlife. In some instances, it’s the primary reason why many species now face the risk of extinction. Recently, anti-poaching teams have started using dirt bikes for patrolling, as it’s considered the fastest and most agile vessel to use in the wild. However, these bikes run on fuel, a scarce resource in the region that is expensive to transport in the remote areas. The combustion engine bikes also alert illegal poachers miles away with their noisy engines.
The bike is designed so that it is easily dismantled/disassembled.
