Recent years have seen the development of the hybrid electric motorcycle in order to reduce pollutant emissions and the fossil-fuel consumption of transportation. This paper presents a research of energy consumption and essential cost of innovative technology that is applied on two wheels motorcycle based on the platform of Honda Lead 110cc. The front wheel is replaced by a DC electric hub motor powered by lithium-ion battery. The rear wheel is driven by drive train integrated with a continuously variable transmission as its origin. Both of them are able to provide propulsion torque separately or simultaneously. Through simulations of vehicle driving range using popular driving cycles, it is demonstrated that there is considerable benefit in fuel economy. The plug – in hybrid structure without generator is effective choice to renovate a traditional motorcycle in traffic condition of Vietnamese cities. The fuel consumption of plug – in hybrid motorcycle can be 0.567 l/100 km less than original in case of rider only. The results show that performance characteristics of the plug – in hybrid motorcycle are likely to achieve the desired acceptance that original one currently achieve. This study offers a favorable support for further development of hybrid electric motorcycle.
