  • The Aidea AA Cargo Is An EV Scooter Made For Delivery Riders - But Is It Worth S$28,000?


    AIDEA's electric 3-wheeled motorcycle "AA Cargo" has received and completed its homologation to be used on Singapore's roads, and this is inline with the distributor's original target date of getting the AA Cargo on our roads by Q1 2021. While this is not the first EV motorcycle to grace our shores, it is definitely one of the first one that is heavily skewed towards cargo and food delivery riders. With a maximum payload of 120kg, it should be able to tackle most of the jobs required of delivery riders.

    The introduction of Aidea's AA Cargo was created to meet the growing demand for delivery is considered to be a part of the company's activities to achieved a sustainable society, and it will play a role as an environmentally friendly and socially friendly mobile mode of transport.

    The AA Cargo is available in 4KW model (available now) and a 8KW model that should be coming in the near future. You only need a Class 2B license to ride the 4KW model and with the theoretical horsepower rating of the 8KW model, it should also fall under the Class 2B licensing rules but we'll have to wait and see what LTA says.

    Our good friend, Mr Zaihan from TNP, also known as bikerboy, recently wrote on the AA Cargo scooter as well as states that it will have a machine price of S$18,000, and assuming current COE prices of S$8,000, it would make the OTR pricing of the Aidea AA Cargo a whopping S$26,000 before insurance and road tax!

    The 4KW variant that is currently available has a range of 160km and a top speed of 70km/h.

    AIDEA is a new mobility brand from Japan that was born at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. AIDEA's mission is to solve environmental problems and contribute to society through next-generation ZEVs (Zero Emission Vehicles).

    Many people will be convinced when they hear that its predecessor was the Italian motorcycle manufacturer ADIVA, which was founded in 1996. It's easy to see that the motorcycle inherits the unique style proven by ADIVA, with its retractable roof with wipers, rear box, and three-wheel system. In addition, AIDEA is characterized by the fact that it is fully electric and is produced under strict Japanese quality control.

    Also, don't overlook the infusion of authentic Italian design that blends the storefront with the modern, including the appointment of Claudio Zancini as a product designer, who created the Bimota TESI H2, which made its shocking debut at last year's EICMA 2019.

    More on the Aidea AA Cargo:

    The company says that its unique body configuration, which includes a highly stable three-wheeled structure with a large all-weather screen and roof, a fully flat cargo bed that can accommodate a variety of boxes, independent left-right suspension rear suspension, and large 13-inch wheels, solves many of the problems associated with conventional business motorcycles.

    It is equipped with a high-capacity lithium-ion battery of about 4kWh, which can be fully charged in 3 hours from a standard 200V power supply.

    The biggest advantage of the AA Cargo, which is an EV, is that it emits no CO2 and is environmentally friendly. It does not emit exhaust gas like an engine motorcycle and is quiet, making it ideal for companies that handle food products, and should contribute to improving their brand image. In addition, the running costs, including electricity and maintenance, are less than half those of fuel-powered motorcycles, so a considerable cost reduction effect can be expected when considering large-scale operation over a long span of time.

    Furthermore, as a unique mechanism, the reverse function is convenient for parking and maneuvering in narrow alleys. It is also noteworthy that the motorcycle is equipped with convenient mechanisms that take advantage of the advantages of three wheels, such as a "roll lock" to lock the motorcycle's left and right inclination and a "parking brake" to lock the motorcycle's front and rear movement.

    According to Mr. Narita, marketing director at AIDEA, the current segregation is that the front two wheels are medium-sized motorcycles for leisure and the rear two wheels are small motorcycles for business. The reason for this is that the priority for leisure motorcycles is to avoid tipping over when the front tires lose grip or the steering wheel gets caught on a bump, while the priority for business motorcycles is to keep the load on the back of the motorcycle as stable as possible.

      TRIUMPH Motorcycles has today officially pulled the covers off its first electric motorcycle project in the form of the TE-1 prototype electric bike.

      The ambitious project is being touted as providing a step-change in electric motorcycle design, performance, and dynamics. But this kind of quantum leap in ability doesn’t come easily, and to help make it happen Triumph has called upon some of the biggest names in the business to add their own sizable weight of knowledge and expertise to the project.
      TRIUMPH Motorcycles are distributed exclusively in Singapore by:

      Mah Pte Ltd
      www.mah.com.sg
      Address: 1179 Serangoon Rd, Singapore 328232
      Phone: 6295 6393
      What is the Triumph TE-1 project?

      First and foremost, it’s important to get some idea of what the TE-1 actually is. Obviously, it is Triumph’s first electric motorcycle, but what does that actually mean? Well, it doesn’t mean that the bike you see in the pictures here will necessarily be the bike you can walk into a dealership and buy in years to come. The TE-1 is a prototype motorcycle, providing proof of concept for the whole idea and a rolling testbed for future development.
      But it’s also more than that, as Triumph and the other stakeholders in the project are looking to create a breeding ground of expertise and knowledge within the UK workforce, creating jobs and enhancing the UK’s reputation in the field of electrification.

      Who is involved?

      Obviously, Triumph is the major player here, the TE-1 is a motorcycle after all, and it’s the British firm’s sizable knowledge of the global market that is supercharging the venture. Backing them up is Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE), which is bringing a wealth of knowledge gained in the cauldron of electric motorsports to the table. WAE specialise in lightweight battery design, integration, and management systems.
      Putting the power to the road so to speak is another British concern in the form of Integral Powertrain’s E-Drive division. They are also a firm deeply rooted in the electric motorsport sector, being part of the team that helped the Volkswagen ID-R electric Pikes Peak car to its record-breaking victory at the historic hill climb.
      The third team involved is WMG at the University of Warwick, who are providing electrification expertise to the endeavour. They will help with the R&D and commercial impact of the bike through modelling and simulation based on future market needs.

      The final piece of the TE-1 puzzle is the UK Government’s Office for Zero-Emission Vehicles (OZEV), delivered by Innovate UK. OZEV will be helping with funding the project, as well as supporting charging point infrastructure throughout the UK – something without which no electric project can become viable in the real world.
      What kind of bike could the TE-1 become?

      As you can see from the images, the TE-1 is at this stage the core of an electric motorcycle with some obvious nods to the legendary Speed Triple in its frame design and overall shape. As we mentioned above, that’s not to say that the final motorcycle will be an electrically powered Speed Triple, although as anyone who has ridden one will know, it’s not a bad starting point!
      One of the key points of focus for all involved seems to be in creating an electric motorcycle that immediately has the feel and dynamics of a conventional petrol-powered motorcycle. Because of that, the bike has the look of a bike with acutely centralised mass, with no wasted space within the frame. The battery, management systems, and motor are all placed in such a way that the silhouette of the finished product is instantly recognisable as a Triumph, with none of the outlandish angles of some electric machines.

      The unveiling of the battery and powertrain of the machine signifies the completion of Phase 2 of the project, in that some high-level performance results have been obtained, and the final design sketches of the bike have been completed.
      What’s next for the Triumph TE-1?

      Now that the engineers from Triumph, Integral Powertrain, and Williams have gathered their high-level data, the next phase will see the bike actually being created, and then it gets really exciting.

      By autumn this year, we should have seen the bike in its final form and hopefully will even get to see the thing running. Then in Spring 2022, Triumph has stated that a production model will be available and with any luck, they might send a unit over to Singapore for hot-weather testing and we'll definitely be bugging Mah Pte Ltd to test the new machine and ride the bike for ourselves.
