Loncin’s E-motorcycle Brand BICOSE Announced the First Product Real 5T
Loncin disclosed its FY2021 annual report. During the reporting period, the company recorded an operating revenue of 13.058 billion yuan, up 25.11% year on year, achieving the operating target of 12.5 billion yuan set by the board of directors at the beginning of the year.
Dividing the main businesses, the company’s motorcycle business saw an annual revenue of 7.558 billion yuan, a year-on-year growth of 39.55%. Among them,the sales of the VOGE large displacement models grew significantly, realizing a revenue of 837 million yuan, a year-on-year growth of 87.24%. Communications business continued to grow steadily, with sales reaching 4.3772 million units in the year, up 44.60% year on year.
The company actively deploys the electric motorcycle business and strives to build “low-carbon power, a leading brand of intelligent products”. With the long-term technical accumulation from R&D of fuel motorcycles, relying on the strong EPS intelligent manufacturing capacity and the quality control system inherited from the cooperation with BMW, the company redefines and creates a new generation of electric motorcycle brand–BICOSE.
Data show that in 2021, the domestic electric motorcycle sales reached 3.9428 million, increasing by 3.43% year on year; The sales volume of electric two-wheeled mopeds (≤50km/h) was 642,400 units, down 40.72% year on year, and that of larger models (> 50km/h) were 2,511,600 units, up 21.06% year on year.
Recently, BICOSE disclosed its first product the Real 5T in appearance pictures. For years, electric two-wheelers have had a minimalist design style. Positioning for “high performance and high intelligence,” Real 5T’s design team chose a completely different aesthetic principle: it is to show the speed and passion on motorcycles as well as the sense of science and technology from new energy. User-friendliness and good control are also focus points of design.
First, the 100+km/h top speed decides that it is a medium-high speed motorcycle, and the stability of the body becomes extremely important. The Real 5T features a high-strength alloy steel backbone frame that gives the chassis a torsional rigidity and an attractive scooter look. A relaxed riding posture combined with a compact wheelbase provides excellent ride stability and handling flexibility.
The Real 5T, with the main semantics of “wind flow”, combines rich spatial layers with dynamics to create a strong and elegant visual identity. Exquisite details fully demonstrate technology, innovation and future texture.
Beauty of Art Created by Form Design
Form design is the most intuitive element of design aesthetics, and strong visual sense is the primary image of product charm.
The Real 5T is designed in a “riding aesthetics” style, with flowing lines and surfaces delineating the Real 5T’s sleek body. The dynamic design creates a succinct, powerful and technologically pleasing melody of the future.
Texture of Technology
The beauty of technology lies not only in the innovation and application itself, but also in the way it is expressed externally, so that people can enjoy using it.
The Real 5T’s technological innovations are everywhere. The central intelligent control polymer with an disruptive design, the foldable touch screen with non-inductive automatic turnover function, and the automotive level electronic touch keys will be applied to this motorcycle. Aluminum alloy four-arm single suspension, automotive wheel hub design, precision transmission assembly…all these configurations will reflect the mechanical beauty to the extreme. The texture of the future is conveyed through all kinds of exquisite details.
Beauty of Satisfactory Functions
The ultimate purpose of industrial design is to change people’s way of life, and user-friendly experience become the standard to measure good products.
To provide ample storage space, the Real 5T has made a number of innovations in the overall layout. The 30L capacity can hold one full-face helmet and one half-face helmet. The LED headlights provide excellent lighting effect, which can automatically turn on when sensing external light. The daytime running light is integrated with the front windshield, enhancing warning effect and safety. The projective atmosphere taillight depends on diffuse reflection to form halo to expand the lighting range, creating an aesthetic feeling and improving riding safety.
