Filipinos are known for their ingenuity and hard work. That is why in many industries around the world, they prefer the manpower and talent provided by the Filipino worker. This December, that ingenuity and hard work would translate to the birth of the first-ever 100% Filipino motorcycle manufacturer. Its name: LYCAN.
Born in QC
According to LYCAN, they are a 100% Filipino motorcycle manufacturing and technology startup company that has facilities in Fairview, Quezon City. The company also wants to set the standards high for a 100% Pinoy-made motorcycle, as they will extensively use AI (artificial intelligence), a smart voice program, as well as an integrated smart motorcycle helmet for its upcoming motorcycle models.
First Pinoy-built big bike
Unlike other companies, LYCAN says that they will manufacture motorcycles with 300cc up to 650cc engine displacements that are designed and developed by a team of Filipino engineers and designers.
Personalized customer experience
Once established, LYCAN says that customers can fully personalize, customize and order their motorcycles online before it even hits the manufacturing line. Once the order is completely built, LYCAN motorcycles can be delivered straight to the customer’s home via its cloud-based motorcycle designer software.
To build up interest and encourage potential investors, LYCAN is set to officially launch on December 11, 2021, and hopes to produce its first batch of motorcycles for the Pinoy customers by 2022, with the LYCAN G6 (300cc) and Challenger 1 (650cc), while development and eventual production of LYCAN electric motorcycles could be complete by 2023.
