By Jayashree Adkoli July 08, 2010
US Highland, Inc., a U.S.-based designer and manufacturer of high-performance, premium-quality Motocross, Supermoto, Quad and Enduro motorcycles, announced a new hub motor electric engine.
According to a press release, US Highland could complete the new revolutionary hub motor electric engine in conjunction with its joint venture partner, Millennial Research Corporation. US Highland has the exclusive rights to utilize the new engine and technology for powersports applications.
Millennial Research Corporation is the developer as well as the patent holder of the unparalleled and revolutionary patented magnetronic electric motor technology that represents the first substantial change to the electric motor since the industrial revolution.
The new hub motor electric engine is based on patented magnetronic technology. The magnetronic technology focuses on eliminating primary sources of heat waste. The magnetronic motors feature permanent magnet, modular design for high fault tolerance, high torque, high power to weight ratio, lowest operation temperature, scalable from ½ horsepower to more than 10K horsepower, and more.
"Our revolutionary magnetronic motor technology is broadly applicable across many industries and markets," said Dennis Palmer, founder of Millennial Research Corporation. "This powerful magnetronic motor designed for US Highland will require as much as 70 percent less battery usage for the same run time and weigh as much as 40 percent less than the existing competition. This is a real game changer for the use of electrical engines in power sports."
Millennial Research also has a full suite of additional patent applications pending to further protect its IP and is pursuing patent protection worldwide.
Mats Malmberg, President of US Highland, Inc., said, "We are very excited about the possibilities this electric motor technology adds to our company. This puts US Highland at the forefront of the green technology movement within the powersports industry. We have worked with our partner Millennial Research Corporation on the development of this engine for over two years. It is now finally ready for commercial applications."
