Sarolea MANX7 Electric Superbike


In 1929 Saroléa was producing seventy-five motorcycles a day from its state-of-the-art factory in Belgium and was one of the largest motorcycle manufacturers in Europe.
Just thirty-four years later the famous and the much-loved Belgian brand was no more. The ravages of the Second World War, and the economic struggles that followed, had brought the company to its knees.

Nearly half a century on, the rights to the brand were purchased by twin brothers from Ghent and the tentative steps towards a new motorcycling legacy were born.

Saroléa has been racing its electric superbike at the Isle of Man TT for the last five years, and based on it, they created the MANX7 in 2018.   The Limited MANX7 is a race bike with lights.

The core of the MANX7 is a carbon fibre monocoque chassis. This combination of materials and techniques results in a lightweight, super strong and rigid chassis.  For a low total weight and optimum safety, the swingarm is also made of lightweight carbon fibre.

Due to its structure design and configuration the Saroléa MANX7 has the ideal weight distribution of 50% front and 50% at the rear.

Saroléa’s advanced electric drivetrain delivers exhilarating performance. Unlike a gasoline internal combustion engine with hundreds of moving parts, Saroléa electric motors have only one moving piece: the rotor.  As a result, Saroléa MANX7 acceleration is instantaneous, silent and smooth:  Twist the throttle and in as little as 3.0 seconds it’s travelling at 100 km per hour, without hesitation, and without a drop of gasoline.

The motor is a 161hp airc-cooled brushless DC motor, with a battery pack that comes in three versions: 14kWh, 18kWh, 22kWh. In the 22kWh pack configuration, the Sarolea MANX7 boasts a range of 205 miles.

To help future proof the MANX7 from battery advancements, Sarolea has designed its battery pack to be removable.
