On November 27th, Savic Motorcycles unveiled the C-Series production prototype at their online launch. THE PACK published “The Savic electric motorcycle story” from Dennis Savic almost 2 years ago, a young entrepreneur with a clear vision.
Dennis Savic: “Motorcycling isn’t about going from A to B, and it isn’t about being a cheap mode of transportation, although it is both these things. Motorcycling is about being seen, it’s about personal expression, who you are, and who you want to be. When people are asked, what type of motorcycle they would like to ride, most don’t reply with a model, they typically reply, “a Kawasaki, a Honda, a Ducati, a Harley”, etc. It’s what a brand represents and how a bike looks that truly resonates with a rider.”

By the end of September, this ‘United Nations of parts’ was gathered in our West Melbourne workshop, ready for the exciting business of assembly to begin once Covid restrictions are lifted.

We assembled our first (non-working) Alpha motorbike by early November, ready for the QAGOMA exhibition in Brisbane. The second Alpha has been assembled shortly afterwards in preparation for our public launch on November 27th.
Everything continues to look promising for our first bike to be on the road in Melbourne in early 2021, providing that import delays do not hold up our motor controller supplier, who is based in Italy.
However, with more than 400 unique parts, assembling our bikes remains at the mercy of international shipping and airfreight schedules – so we are continuing to keep all our fingers and toes crossed!
