Zero Motorcycles recently filed a patent application to design a mock clutch lever that modulates torque and regenerative braking to provide riders with a similar feel and control as traditional internal combustion engine motorcycles. Zero Motorcycles’ patent involves the use of the fingers of the left hand as the constant torque control and regenerative braking of electric motors. The clutch lever will be integrated into the engine control electronics, offering reassuring feedback to those accustomed to traditional motorcycles. Through a configuration of the left control lever kinematics, riders will feel a gradual resistance as they move the lever, similar to the action of a traditional clutch.
