Even with the man-miles per gallon math, that's hard to beat. REALLY hard.

Yeah. That man miles thing. Especially since very, very few cars in the developed countries ever bring more than one person to work.

A car pool vehicle getting 35 mpg carrying 5 people gets 175 passenger mpg. Same is for a mini van with 7 people at 25 mpg. So anything beyond that is a real improvement. The recumbent riders recommend a back angle of 45 degrees. Definitely invest in a lap belt.

We go three-up every day, but that doesn't touch 217mpg all by himself. That's really, really good - about .6oz of fuel per mile.

03.Oktober2011 EVOMOTO ... in early hibernation

After I have a whole year invested my full work force in the EVOMOTO project, I actually arrived at the destination: the 1-liter motorcycle is a reality and has already traveled easily over 17000km. And it pleases me repeatedly auf's New. After long consideration I am, however, come to the conclusion that the icing on the cake, the (small) series production, as a private citizen can not be economically implemented under the current framework for me. Try to get support from motorcycle manufacturers, or even the state of Baden-Württemberg have been so far unfortunately not successful. For this reason I have for now put the project already for the beginning of August on ice and work again "normal" as an engineer in my prior art.

True to the motto "Good things take time" and "Constant dripping wears away the stone" collects the EVOMOTO 125cc continue diligently test kilometers, it serves me as a vehicle for my trips to work. The progress of this long-term tests can still be viewed on the Spritmonitor site. There I will also enter any modifications and improvements in the comment column. The EVOMOTO site will remain online. This update will be but probably not been updated for a long time. Similarly, no further Newsletters are sent for lack of news for the time being.

10.August2011 EVOMOTO ... report in the latest issue of BIKE

In the magazine MOTORCYCLE 5.August2011 from a compact report on EVOMOTO is 125cc appeared. About the report, I was very happy, because there are two very important things out there:

1. The consumption of evo has now for the first time determined by an independent body (motorcycle). Taking into account the unfavorable circumstances which test consumption of 1.2 l / 100km a confirmation of previous good consumption. Because the motorcycle test it was cool and windy (the test drive took place in the spring), it went uphill-downhill through the Swabian Alb, and it was a driver at the wheel, which is previously never driven evo. With the experience and the savings potential increases, keywords are mainly the switching behavior, and coasting behavior of the curve momentum.

2. The EVOMOTO 125cc can be driven by an experienced motorcyclists directly and without prior training. The masterpiece is actually that of the driver (Rolf Henniges) completely untrained piloted the evo from the garage through the Stuttgart city center in the Alps. These are the most difficult conditions für's motorcycling. And that's for such a new motorcycle concept not of course - see the printed in the same issue about the test "MonoTracer E".

In EVOMOTO report I noticed two small mistakes: First, I have my lowest consumption 0.96 l / 100km and not (as written) 0.9 l / 100km indicated - well maybe I am a bit fussy. On the other hand, the values ​​for the air resistance are given somewhat misleading: in the values ​​0.21 and 0.57 is not the drag coefficient but the product of cWxA, so actually 0.21 m2 (EVO) and 0 , 57 m2 (Inno). This shows then that the evo a similarly low Lutwiderstand how the MonoTracer E - except that the latter is a cWxA of 0.19 x 0.99 m2 and the evo a CW x A of approximately 0.42 x 0.5 m2 has.
