Barcelona, the city where modern design meets Gaudi. Trendy bars, delicious food-markets and football … Here, in this climate of art and sun, the team of Rocsie has developed the ROCSIE Electric cafe-racer. Inspired from the classic 50’s motorcycles, Rocsie build an electric motorbike, or should we say an electric bike?
This striking appearance has an elegant design and uses some various, surprising materials: wood, leather and metal. The use of plastic is almost reduced to zero or minimized as much as possible.
This final prototype is the result of an evolution process, sleepless nights, discussions and aqua (yeah right …).
Design & handcrafted local in Barcelona
Driving this motorbike (let’s call it like that) is a statement and will give a point of reference in your lifestyle. With a minimalistic design (less is more), the team delivered an electric motorbike, which is completely different to the existing ones in that market.
Rocsie: “Our mission is to get back the old way of local handcrafting to make durable things, focussing on high quality and details, while creating new jobs in the region. We believe in producing quality products while taking care of our planet, our workers and of course future generations.”
