From Pininfarina to eROCKIT: Markus Leder strengthens the management of electric motorcycle manufacturer

Hennigsdorf (BERLIN): eROCKIT, a quickly-growing manufacturer in the electric motorcycle space, announced that Markus Leder joins the company as Chief Operating Officer. In his new role, Markus Leder will be responsible for the complete production and quality assurance pipeline of the innovative, pedal-controlled eROCKIT electric motorcycle. Prior to joining eROCKIT, Markus Leder was Head of Engineering at Pininfarina Germany.

“As a passionate motorcyclist, I was immediately enthusiastic about the eROCKIT driving experience, which uses a completely new and unique powertrain technology”, says Leder. “The eROCKIT bike is only the first step in our plans to deliver this highly-innovative and effective technology to the world's markets.”

The eROCKIT is characterized by its unique pedal/electric drive powertrain, which allows the rider to control a vast amount of electrical power, and yet pedal as if on a bike. The human interaction with the bike – called Human Hybrid™ - is unique, fun, and an indescribable riding experience.

With a top speed of 90 km/h (56 mph) and a range of 120 kilometers (75 miles), the eROCKIT has the same dynamics and performance as a motorcycle. The electric two-wheeler is equipped with a highly efficient, brushless permanent magnet synchronous motor (peak power 16kW, continuous power 5kW).

“The eROCKIT product and technology fit perfectly into the quickly-growing market for electric mobility,” continues Leder. “I’m excited to be a part of this team, helping drive the future of sustainable and clean transportation."

"Markus brings some 30 years of experience in the automotive industry, coupled with extensive engineering knowledge to eROCKIT”, says Andreas Zurwehme, CEO of eROCKIT Systems GmbH. “We’re thrilled to have him join the team at this point in our history, as we’re actively ramping up eROCKIT production to meet the quickly-rising demand.”
