Australian electric vehicle maker Savic Motorcycles has confirmed that it will begin manufacturing its C-Series electric bike in Melbourne next year, following a successful round of fundraising.

Savic Motorcycles this week revealed that it had reached its 1.83 million capital target following a $657,000 grant via the Federal Government’s Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC), a not-for-profit organisation that invests in local manufacturing initiatives.

In a recent statement, Savic says that it plans to have at least 20 bikes delivered to owners in the fourth quarter of 2022, with a larger production run slated for 2023.

The Savic C-Series is currently available to pre-order in three variants, with pricing starting from around $12,990 plus on-road costs for the base Omega, followed by the mid-spec Delta ($16,990) and range-topping Alpha ($23,990).

Each version is distinguished by its battery size and performance outputs, with the entry-level Omega generating 25kW/110Nm and offering 120 kilometers of range on a single charge.

The Delta steps things up to 40kW/140Nm with 150km of range, while the top-spec Alpha develops a healthy 60kW/180Nm for 200km of range, allowing it to sprint from zero-to-100km/h in a claimed 3.5 seconds.

Charging the Savic C-Series from 20-80 per cent is said to take two hours in the case of the small-battery Omega, while the Delta and Alpha take three- and four- hours, respectively.

The new electric bike features stripped-back cafe-racer styling and comes standard with large Brembo Brakes, Wilbers suspension, Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3 tyres, a TFT dash, rider modes and traction control.

According to Savic Motorcycles’ consumer website, the bike will be backed up by a three-year warranty, with service intervals of 8000km.

Savic Motorcycles is headed by its 28-year-old CEO and founder Dennis Savic.
