Real Motors’ Project ARES: Redefining Electric Bikes

Real Motors' Project ARES

Real Motors introduces its first model, Project: ARES, as a fusion of retro aesthetics and modern technology. This electric cafe racer draws inspiration from sci-fi movies, creating a design that perfectly suits neon-lit dark roads. As riders take on high-speed adventures, they can enjoy the quiet engine roar and the seamless integration of electric capabilities.

One of the standout features of Project: ARES is its curved, open body design. Real Motors opted for a casing that cleverly conceals the engine and batteries, yet remains visible from certain angles. The vibrant orange streak adds a touch of zest to the overall look, while the thick font styles of the printed text and numbers evoke a graphic designer’s flair.

At the rear of the motorcycle, a single red lighting line illuminates when the electric cafe racer is parked or braking, adding a captivating visual element. Real Motors has coined the term “Electric Analogue” to describe their concept for Project: ARES. They aim to seamlessly integrate technology, such as electric batteries and motors, into the classic cafe racer design, emphasizing the retro style rather than overshadowing it with modern features. This approach allows riders to experience the harmonious collaboration between electrical and mechanical components, while keeping the motorcycle’s buttons and controls simple and reminiscent of the old days.

It’s important to note that the images currently available are part of the engineering evaluation prototype and may not represent the final configuration. However, Real Motors is actively developing the electric cafe racer, with multiple prototypes in progress. The company plans to release production models in late 2025. While specific details are yet to be finalized, Real Motors anticipates that Project: ARES will offer power comparable to 700-900cc ICE motorcycles, have a starting price below $20,000, and be produced in limited quantities.
