Saint signs consulting deal with Curtiss Motorcycles
ON NOV. 8, 2018, Saint Jean Carbon Inc. entered into an agreement with Curtiss Motorcycles Inc. of Birmingham, Ala., to provide research and development for battery development, motor and power train development, and other related services. Curtiss Motorcycles was formed to lead a new golden age of sustainable, fun, utilitarian, twowheeled mobility. Its plan is to rapidly and precisely develop and deploy the highest-level battery electric zero-emissions technology and innovation to its motorcycles.
The company, its partners and suppliers will receive five million unvested shares of Curtiss Motorcycles common stock (with a deemed value of 20 (U.S.) cents and equalling a total of $1-million (U.S.)), which shall fully vest upon the occurrence, to the written satisfaction of Curtiss Motorcycles of the project being broken down into four project milestones: design, engineering, prototype completion and delivery of final two prototypes. Initially, the company will supply four finished prototype power systems in the spring of 2019. All intellectual property developed during the design and build will be the property of Curtiss. A number of other partners will work on the project under the management of Saint Jean. The agreement is for one year; however, it is expected that the project will complete in the spring of 2019.
Paul Ogilvie, chief executive officer of Saint Jean Carbon, commented: “We are pleased to have the opportunity to take raw materials and apply them to a high-performance and best-in-class electric motorcycle. As we lead the team, our partners will provide support engineering, electric motor design and system controls. At the heart of each Curtiss motorcycle will be the best technology we can apply to the batteries. We will apply all the know-how, from our many years of research in energy storage, as we strive for extreme range and power.”
Over the last three years, the company has worked extensively with its academic partners on many projects, working toward greater energy density and advanced anode design. The project will centre around the Saint Jean Carbon research and development lab in Oakville, Ont. The company has brought together a great development team to fulfill the mission.
Matt Chambers, chief executive officer of Curtiss Motorcycles, commented: “Our long history of building the very best and finest motorcycles with best-in-class industrial design will continue with our new electric motorcycles. We believe partnering with Saint Jean best facilitates our grassroots, lean approach and keeps us focused on the heart of Curtiss advanced technology — the battery. We have patiently timed our market entry. The pioneers before us have taught our team to be weary of obsolete technology. We will launch our unique bespoke line of best and finest Curtiss Motorcycles with the perfect partner to optimize this great opportunity.”
The company will provide project updates as they become available.
