Oh s..t, I just assumed with Stark getting help from Croatia that it was Rimac.. sorry, my bad!

Edit: Wrong info from my side. Rimac has nothing to do with Stark! Kinda Non-Moto, but if you want to see what the Rimac guys can do, who did a lot of the engineering on the Varg, watch this video. Here's F1 Champ Nico Rosberg driving his new 2000 HP ... more »

I‘m impressed, some really cool features on the bike. And boi, that engine is ultra compact!

Added reply in a thread Stark Varg Reviews 8/10/2022 10:35 PM

Really cool, thanks! So they’re going big and plug a 100 cells together and use a motor than runs at around 320 V. Pretty similar to the Model S powertrain! Makes for an efficient package with thin cables. So at full throttle they draw about 15 kW from ... more »

Yeah, was that mentioned anywhere? They could split it to packs of 100, 80 or 50 cells which would result in about 370 V, 296 V or 185 V, respectively. Teslas battery packs run somewhere between 350 and 400 V, depending on the model and battery size. ... more »

Sorry, didn’t see you second post. Would be cool, if you could supply a link to the hex cells. I can’t find them, but would like to see what they‘re up to.

You just claim that. Please give us an explanation on why you think the won‘t be able to get rid of the heat. Have you done the math? Also what about my questions: which other brands use hex cells? Does the Mugen/Honda really have hex cells? Why are ... more »

That also highly depends on the Al- or Mg-alloy used and the surfaces treatment. Come on guys, what are talking about here? How many cars and bikes have Mg covers, engine parts, hubs or even wheels without problems. I‘m sounding like I‘m an employee ... more »

How is Mg a cheap solution? It’s the lightest commonly used die casting material. It’s combination of specific strength, thermal conductivity and manufacturing capabilities is perfect for a battery casing. So you say the Honda/Mugen electric bike, that ... more »

Interesting! Which company is it?

Sure, hex cells can be pack tighter than cylindrical ones, but are there any availible? Cylindrical cells are easy to mass produce and readily available on the market. I can't even find hexagonal battery cells for sale. Did they? If read and watched ... more »

Yes, everybody uses cylindrical cell. Cars, eBikes, power tools… what’s your point? Only flat devices like phones and laptops use pouches. With the way Stark designed the battery pack, they‘ll have a high heat flow rate from the cells to walls of the ... more »

Looks like battery pack production is up and running! Curious, if they also manufacture the motor and the power electronics themselves. View this post on Instagram A post shared by @starkfutureofficial

Yeah, you’re right. Pics I posted were from the generation before. You’re pic shows the 250f. That engine seems to have an even steeper intake.

It‘s more like a twostroke air box turned upside down. Red circle would be the shock tower:

Here’s the CRF layout:

Added reply in a thread New 2023 YZ450F 8/2/2022 11:03 AM

That’s exactly the point of the newer generation of CRF frames: the shock tower is lower so that the intake can be routed over it. The YZFs and CRFs intake setup and injector location are actually pretty similar now.
