DAB Motors x Becane: a hand-stitched fashionable 125cc electric 125cc
It is currently the Fashion Week in Paris, the opportunity to see collaborations flourish between brands that are not necessarily from the same world. This is particularly the case of DAB Motors, converted into the production of customizable motorcycles, which has approached Becane Paris, a brand of women’s clothing “technical and urban” all leather, geared towards motorcycling.
During the presentation of the Becane Paris collection in an underground car park in the capital, a motorcycle specially designed for the ready-to-wear brand appeared. A discerning eye will have recognized the Concept-E, this 125 cc equivalent with a supermotard look unveiled in July 2021. Stripped down, the Concept-E is equipped with a 10 kW motor (20 kW peak) and a lithium- 51.8 V ion.
But what makes the originality of this motorcycle is the use of top-of-the-range materials such as Öhlins suspensions specially designed for the motorcycle and Beringer brakes, all in aluminum and cut in the mass. Added to this are a Gates belt transmission mounted on pulleys and beautiful spoked rims. There is also an LED meter positioned in the fork triple trees, while a screen integrated into the surface of the tank displays various information.
Only concern – size – this Concept-E was limited to 29 copies at a unit price of €28,500.
The DAB Motors x Becane Paris version is adorned with a scaled black paint, shiny under the light, while the all-leather saddle was made by the Parisian haute couture workshop, the same one that takes care of produce the Becane Paris collection. Additionally, 3D printed parts such as the front fender and logos give the bike a unique look and feel. “individualized”.
On the other hand, nothing indicates if this collaboration will give birth to a limited series, as was the case with the ready-to-wear brand Burberry (see video above) and its 20 copies marketed at 29,900 €.
