Podcast Interview: Anthony Cross of Zeiser Motors
New startup with a polarizing design.
Check out our latest podcast interview with Anthony Cross of startup Zeiser Motors. They’re currently crowdfunding through Wefunder to raise money to make a working prototype of the bike they claim will have a 300 mile range.
My guest today is Anthony Cross, the founder and CEO of Zaiser motors. They’re working on their first electric motorcycle, the Electrocycle, and I think it is stunning. The online community is torn about the design, but everyone is excited about the claimed 300 mile range. The bike is very different from electric motorcycles like any of the Zeros or the Livewire, in that it uses hub motors instead of an on-chassis motor. Notice that I said motors, plural. There will be a hub motor in both the front and rear wheel, which they promise will deliver better traction control and stability. Color me intrigued. I’ve ridden dual-motor electric fat bikes, and they can be really good, but the motors have to be precisely controlled.
If you want to see what the bike looks like, check out our article on electricbikeaction.com. Zaiser is currently running a crowdfunding campaign with Wefunder, and I’ll put a link below in the show notes. In this interview, Anthony and I discuss how he started, and where he plans to go with this.
