Electric motorcycles created by the concern,Designed for road patrol and patrol services. It is reported that they will be handed over to the Moscow police in late August. On a single charge, a new electric motorcycle can travel up to 150 kilometers. The press service of the concern noted that the police had already tested the bikes, but they will begin to conduct full-fledged tests after the new electric motorcycles are at their disposal.
A month ago, the head of Rostec, Sergei Chemezov, said that the Kalashnikov concern was planning to restart production of motorcycles.
“Probably, remember how Izh-Planet was once popular. Now the task is set: to restore what was, to bring to the modern level, ”said the head of the state corporation in an interview with TASS.
Next week in Kubinka located inMoscow region, the forum will be held "Army-2017". There Kalashnikov is also going to bring new electric motorcycles for demonstration at their stands.
Earlier it became known that by 2020Moscow authorities plan to completely abandon the purchase of public transport with internal combustion engines - this will reduce gas emissions into the atmosphere and save on fuel. Perhaps the initiative will affect special vehicles, but only in the long term, because the infrastructure necessary for electric transport in the capital is still almost completely absent.
