Renowned motorcycle designer Pierre Terblanche and carbon wheel specialist BST have joined forces to reveal an all-new electric motorcycle: the HyperTEK.

BST HyperTEK: ELECTRIC motorcycle of the FUTURE designed by Pierre Terblanche (the man who brought us the Ducati 999).

Best known for work designing the original Ducati Sport Classic, Multistrada, Hypermotard and 999 Superbike – Terblanche is back in action, teaming up with BST to create this weird and wonderful electric bike. And he said: “This is the best work I’ve ever done.”

Unveiled at EICMA, the futuristic HyperTEK’s a seriously interesting bit of kit. With a monocoque carbon fibre frame and a DHX Hawk electric motor – it kicks out 107bhp and 120 Nm of instantaneous torque. Connected up to a quick charger, it’ll charge in 30-minutes – and (somehow) it’s claimed to return around 186 miles from its 4.75 kWh battery pack.


Given BST’s day job creating top-spec carbon fibre wheels, the HyperTEK is absolutely dripping in carbon fibre. And that means weight has been kept down to a respectable 205kg.

And although it looks like a crazy concept, BST is serious about getting the bike built. The plan is to start production in about 18 months’ time – but with it expected to cost $80,000 (£60,000), you better get saving pretty sharpish.
