Damon Motors and Indika Energy Join Forces to Achieve Net-Zero Emissions as Damon approaches $100M in Orders
Electric motorcycle company, Damon Motors, has announced a partnership with PT Indika Energy Tbk., an energy company in Indonesia. Indika Energy has invested in Damon and will serve as the distributor for Damon’s line of motorcycles in the Indonesian market. The partnership aims to help Indonesia reach its goal of net-zero emissions by 2060.
The idea for Damon Motors was born in 2016 when CEO, Jay Giraud, saw an opportunity to rival existing gas-driven motorcycle options in Jakarta, Indonesia, where the largest two-wheeled vehicle penetration in the world is. The company’s mission is to reduce motorcycle accidents on the road by millions.
With Indika, Damon is developing a new global motorcycle platform specifically for the needs of commuters in geographies dominated by 2-wheel mobility. The new motorcycle platform shares key technology with Damon’s other vehicles, making them cleaner, safer and more efficient than all options.
The partnership comes as Damon nears a $100M milestone in orders for its motorcycles. The company has unveiled the HyperSport at CES 2020 and the HyperFighter at CES 2022, both models offer unparalleled safety, comfort, 5G connectivity, and performance with groundbreaking technology and zero tailpipe emissions.
