The electric motorcycle is developed based on the legendary Dnepr motorcycle and contains several technological improvements and modifications that increase its power and provide more mileage.
In July, the company received the right to the Dnepr trademark, including technological developments, design documentation, intellectual property for existing developments, and the design of the iconic motorcycle model.
The serial development of electric motorcycles is planned for the future.
The author, ideologist, and creator of the bike is Serhiy Malik, a Ukrainian racer. The new model traveled to the Bonneville competition from 7-12 August 2021 to set a new speed record in OMEGA's "A" category. The pilot will be Malik.
“We are very pleased with the opportunity to revive the iconic brand and develop its modernized prototype. I am sure that the Delfast-Dnepr Electric model will adequately represent Ukraine at the legendary international competitions,” said Delfast founder Daniil Tonkopyy.
The Dnepr motorcycle is a road bike with a sidecar, produced by the Kyiv Motorcycle Plant. All KMZ heavy motorcycles are collectively called the Dnepr, although the first model, which received its name, the Dnepr K-650, appeared in 1968.
The project was closed in 2012. Delfast was launched in 2014 by Daniil Tonkopyy and Serhiy Denisenko as an eco-delivery service.
The company later started making its electric bikes. The startup has developed an e-bike with the longest range, setting a Guinness World Record. Delfast e-bikes are represented in more than 40 countries around the world.
In April, Delfast launched the production of electric bicycles at the ELMIZ enterprise (formerly the Kyiv Radio Plant). Ukrainian electric bike manufacturer "DelFast" has created the prototype of the "Delfast-Dnepr Electric" electric motorcycle
