At Arcimoto, our goal is to create the safest motorcycle-class vehicle on the road. Every Arcimoto vehicle has been rigorously tested and inspected by our Quality Assurance and Quality Control teams. The FUV complies with the performance requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for a motorcycle. Additionally, the FUV has several key safety advantages over traditional two-wheel motorcycles: increased stability, visibility, and maneuverability.
The three-wheel FUV features a stable driving platform thanks to its innovative reverse trike design. Stability is further improved with front-wheel drive dual independent motors, a low-center of gravity, and a curb weight of 1,300 pounds.
Historically, motorcycles are more difficult for other drivers to see on the road. The FUV is more visible, with a vehicle height of 65 inches (1651 millimeters), about the same height as a Crossover SUV, and is easily seen by other drivers.
As a pure electric vehicle, the FUV features instant torque and acceleration. With its small footprint and turning circle, the FUV gets in and out of tight spaces. Every FUV is equipped with three hydraulic disc brakes, one for each wheel.
As required by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards applicable to motorcycles, the FUV is compliant with 49 CFR 571 (FMVSS) Sections 106, 108, 111, 116, 119, 120, 122, 123, and 205.
