PRETORIA, Gauteng – InMotion Ventures, Jaguar Land Rover’s venture capital fund, has revealed its investment in Arc, which today (Nov 6 2018) unveiled  the Vector – the world’s first fully-electric motorcycle.

It also has a ”human machine interface”. Read on…

Arc Vector is said to be the most advanced electric motorcycle yet brought to market and included exotic materials, thoroughbred components and cutting-edge architecture.


And in case you hadn’t notices,  in a futuristic body.

”The investment from InMotion Ventures and other investors,” The Corner was told, ”along with a number of industry specialists will support Arc, the Vector, and its global ambition to be the cleanest, safest, and most fulfilling motorcycle on the road.”

The brand-new bike was revealed at the Milan Motorcycle Show on Nov 6 2018 on the Arc show stand along with its matching ”ground-breaking” intelligent haptic ride-wear and connected head-up display helmet.


A virtual reality ride experience was available for attendees (which, unfortunately, didn’t include The Corner’s biking editor).

The Arc team involves industry-leading professionals united in their desire to develop and build an all-new experience on two wheels.

Mark Truman, founder and CEO of Arc, explained: “Our aim has always been to unite technology, performance and safety  to create an entirely new two-wheeled experience.
