Play • 22 min

Located in Bayonne, France, Dab Motors endeavors to fuse design, fashion, and innovation in its urban electric motorcycle, the CONCEPT-E.

The name 'Dab' finds its origin in the founder's surname, Simon Dabadie, a French engineer renowned for his expertise in motorcycle customization.

The CONCEPT-E remains a work in progress, with many specifications, features, and technologies still either classified or in the developmental phase.

Similar to any startup, there are lingering uncertainties to navigate. Nevertheless, Dab Motors has reached several significant milestones.

One notable achievement includes a successful collaboration with the fashion brand Burberry in crafting a limited number of bikes. Most notably, Peugeot Motorcycles has obtained a majority stake in Dab Motors.

In my conversation with Dabadie, we delved into the company's background, the bike's details, market insights, and the intricate process behind developing the CONCEPT-E.

So, put on your headphones and immerse yourself in our conversation!
