Electric Motorcycle is the next revolutionary development in the motorcycle industry, the irresistible experience of silent and fast-off-the-line open air journey is surprisingly addictive. In recent years, the rise of electric motorcycles has sparked many innovative projects from both traditional ICE motorcycles companies and fresh up-starts. Kais is a pioneer in the e-motorcycle battery industry, our team has been working with many incredibly talented engineers on developing and optimizing their extraordinary motorcycles. All performance vehicles are the avant-garde of their industry, taking the best of modern technology and pushing the limits of innovation.

 

Design Challenges

There are three main challenges for designing high performance electric motorcycle batteries: high current discharge due to the need for high performance motor, high impact from speed and rough terrain, and high electromagnetic interference protection.


High Current
Discharge

The High current discharge requirements demanded by performance e-motorcycle is a challenge for the battery. Many design considerations must be carefully carried out to maximize driving experience and balance out its impact on cycle life.

High Electromagnetic
Interference

The high electromagnetic interference caused by high current discharge will interfere with the electrical components in the vehicle, impacting user experience and safety.

High Impact

The delicate nature of lithium-ion batteries calls for very well designed impact protection, especially in performance vehicles which operates in extreme working conditions.

DELIVERY & SHARING

SUITABLE FOR ALL WEATHER

The rising popularity of e-motorcycle in delivery & sharing has presented the e-motorcycle industry with an incredible opportunity to thrive. However this opportunity also comes with a set of unique challenges for the e-motorcycle manufacturers and their battery suppliers to overcome. To stay competitive in the D&S industry, the fleet operators are facing constant pressure to cost down, at the same time the harsh demands of the vehicle's operating condition means that there’s little room to compromise in quality. The operator is thus caught in the middle with the sweet spot between quality and cost getting narrower. Kais tackles this paradox with our vast industry experience and superior supply chain to provide excellent manufacturing cost-effectiveness. We have also taken a step further to invest in internet & connectivity features to significantly reduce repair and maintenance costs for our clients, including battery status tracking and over-the-air updating solutions, as well as precision SOC and SOH calculation. After all, every penny saved in the supply chain and maintenance means an opportunity to expand the fleet and increase coverage.

 

Design Challenges

The typical operating condition of D&S vehicles has two defining features, first the vehicles are used with high frequency, second the vehicles are constantly exposed to the extreme temperature outdoors.


High Frequency
Deployment

The frequent use of lithium-ion batteries combined with deep charge/discharge would significantly reduce battery cycle life.

Constant Outdoor
Environment

Long exposure to extreme outdoor temperature accelerates the wear-and-tear of the internal components, leading to increased safety risk.

Connectivity

The delivery and sharing business relies heavily on smart technology for their fleet management, this requires the battery to have versatile software development and reliable connectivity.

KAIS SOLUTIONS

Kais has ample experience in battery development for delivery and sharing e-motorcycles. For mechanical design, Kais leverages our profound understanding of battery cell and battery pack components, to design and simulate for extreme and abuse situations. For electronic design, Kais utilizes our thorough insight and rich experience in different battery pack applications, designing the most suitable charging strategy and BMS protective measures. The battery pack design is then validated through our in-house safety testing lab’s gruesome testing procedures, making sure that the battery is reliable and safe for all climates.

URBAN COMMUTE

COMFORTABLE AND AFFORDABLE

Commuting with an electric motorcycle is fun, economical and environmentally responsible. But one of the main reasons why users have been slow to make the switch to electric motorcycles is because its initial cost is significantly higher than traditional gas powered motorcycles. The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is an important concept in the commuting market. Kais understands the need for our clients to simultaneously cost down and extend the product life cycle to make an appealing case to their customers.

 

Design Challenges

There are two main obstacles preventing the commuters from switching to lithium-ion batteries, the initial cost and user experience, that's why the industry has continued to push for a lighter and cheaper battery from the battery makers.


Principles of ergonomics

Lithium-ion batteries are heavy objects, and after a long day of work, carrying the battery up to the apartment to charge for the night can be a very taunting chore. That's why easing this burden is critical to improving user experience.

Cost performance

The initial cost of a lithium ion e-motorcycle is higher than their ICE counterparts, even though the total cost of ownership is lower. The break-even point of ownership is always an important concern for any e-motorcycle manufacturer.

KAIS SOLUTIONS

Kais has implemented innovative measures to make batteries more affordable, including leveraging our economy of scale to build our own material/components platforms, and develop durable components that last. In addition to the cost-saving, Kais has also strived to make our impact felt by the end-users, we design and build our products based on principles of ergonomics, increasing the lifting comforts and end-user experience.
