Nine months ago, EMN mentioned already the project of the Furion M1, an motorcycle with at its heart a wankel rotary engine combined with an electric motor. “An original motive combination with the key to an unusual sound, musical fruit of two rotors of the rotary engine.” says designer Marc Evenisse.

Today, Marc presents the prototype of Furion M1, a hybrid combining rotary motorcycle and electric motor for the best environmental performance. Using the latest 3d metal printing technology, this model offers a serious introduction for the bike of tomorrow.
