Italian Volt’s highly anticipated electric motorcycle, the Lacama 2.0, is set to commence production in the third quarter of 2023. Tazzari EV, the company’s new owner, is preparing to manufacture this performance-oriented electric motorcycle in Imola, Italy.

Italian Volt has been making waves in the electric motorcycle market, joining the ranks of notable brands such as Zero Motorcycles and Energica. The Lacama electric motorcycle, which has been in development since 2016, aims to offer a bespoke riding experience tailored to individual riders’ preferences. The brand made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2018 and started accepting pre-bookings for the bike, priced at $250 USD. Back then, the purchase price for this exceptional machine stood at an impressive $38,000.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted Italian Volt’s launch plans, leading to significant delays. The brand reemerged at EICMA 2021 and made a commitment to release its motorcycles in the first quarter of 2022. Unfortunately, this target was not met. In 2022, Tazzari EV acquired the company, relocating its headquarters to Imola. The exciting news is that Tazzari management has announced the long-awaited production of the Lacama in the third quarter of 2023.

Now known as the Lacama 2.0, this high-performance electric motorcycle retains the Italian Volt branding while introducing substantial design enhancements. It features an axial flow electric motor generating an impressive 230 Newton-meters (161 pound-feet) of torque and 110 kilowatts (150 horsepower). Power is transmitted to the rear wheel via a carbon belt, enabling a top speed of 230 kilometers per hour (144 miles per hour), surpassing the previous model’s limit of 200 kilometers per hour (125 miles per hour).

The electric powertrain has undergone notable improvements, with the addition of a “Rocket” mode that propels the bike from zero to 62 miles per hour in a mere 3.8 seconds. Equipped with a 400-volt battery pack using Samsung cells, the Lacama 2.0 promises a riding range of up to 125 miles on a single charge. Furthermore, it offers Sport, Eco, and Rain modes, allowing riders to customize power delivery to suit their preferences and prevailing road conditions.

In terms of its running gear, the Lacama 2.0 boasts a one-piece aluminum frame and swingarm, ensuring both lightweight construction and durability. The suspension system incorporates Öhlins inverted front forks and a rear mono-shock, both fully adjustable. Brembo supplies the twin radially mounted front discs and the single rear disc, guaranteeing reliable braking performance.

The Lacama 2.0 also impresses with its advanced electronics. It features a full-color 4.3-inch TFT display with smartphone connectivity, offering intuitive mode selection. Additionally, the bike is equipped with a six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) that powers sophisticated lean-sensitive ABS and traction control systems.

As mentioned earlier, each Lacama 2.0 motorcycle will be uniquely crafted to meet the owner’s specifications. The bodywork can be fully customized, allowing owners to provide design inputs before production. Utilizing 3D printing technology, Italian Volt will transform these personalized designs into reality, with options ranging from scrambler and cafe-racer to naked bike styles. A diverse palette of 22 colors will be available for selection.
