Arc Vector, one of the UK’s most advanced electric motorcycle brands, is set to get a new lease of life after its founder bought the company from administration. Last year, Arc Vector unveiled an exclusive hyper nude electric bike built around a carbon fiber monocoque. The company did, however, run into financial difficulties in September 2019 before the project could come to fruition. Arc Vector founder Mark Truman, who also designed the original concept, bought the key assets from the administrator and relaunched the project. In fact, Truman hopes to deliver bikes to customers within a year.
