Aiming to make motorcycle vehicles more efficient, the Phaser Type 1 features the chassis of a 1998 Yamaha Fazer 600 that has been retrofitted with an electric motor. Created by Union Motion, the Phaser Type 1 has been completely retrofitted to be completely modern and efficient, while maintaining the style aesthetic of the original bike. Although electric, the bike can reach 110mph at the top speed, while the range is set at about 60-miles.

The Phaser Type 1 no longer features the bulky motor design that was previously in place before the procedure to upgrade it was done. Now, the unit features bodywork that was created using a CNC mill that enables it to look like a sleek yet retro unit that ups the ante for motorcycle vehicles everywhere.
