The Saietta motor was specifically designed for vehicle applications, offering ultra-high efficiency over the total operating speed while conventional motors will only have high efficiency in a limited speed range. Additionally, the Saietta motors are compact and power dense; robust and reliable; and have simple electronic control. These characteristics means the Saietta motors are suitable in a wide range of applications and have proven performance.



The Saietta DC motors excel in light weight applications such as scooters. The simple electronic control reduces the complexity, and cost, of the powertrain. Our converted scooter achieved a top speed of c. 90 km/h (55 mph). The range is c. 25 km (15 miles) at top speed and a range of 100 km (60 miles) at 40 km/h (24 mph).


Saietta developed the Saietta R and Saietta NGS electric concept motorcycles, providing an intimate understanding of the challenges involved in packaging an electric powertrain in to the most demanding of environments, and crucially providing the knowledge and expertise to assist in overcoming these challenges. 



Cedric Lynch (Chief Scientist) was instrumental in the conversion of a standard urban road vehicle into an electric car. The resulting car could comfortably achieve a range of up to 180 km (112 miles) at a top speed of 95 km/h (59 mph). Saietta is currently working with a range of niche car OEMs to develop electric or hybrid conversions.



Saietta motors provide an excellent solution for the challenging rickshaw market. Saietta is experimenting with a powertrain solution incorporating a solar panel fitted to the rickshaw roof. We firmly believe that the combined solution of the Saietta motors and solar power, we can make a genuine, tangible difference to the future of low-cost, sustainable transport in Asia.



Saietta motors are ideal for applications such as water pumps, floor cleaning machines, compressors, fork lift trucks, tow tractors, cranes and some machine tools. Used as generators, we provide a powerful advantage in applications such as wind turbines. Saietta motors have the unique advantage in that they have the same efficiency operated as a motor or generator. We supply motors for solar and wind power compressors. These compressors are used at drilling sites in harsh environments, demonstrating the robustness of our motors.


Saietta developed a revolutionary water pumping system using our high efficiency motors and solar power which can operate independent of fuel or complicated wiring for an electricity supply. Using a simple on & off switch the system is extremely efficient and cost effective in comparison to alternative products.



On November 1st 2005, four revolutionary electric motors designed by Saietta’s Cedric Lynch, powered a 15ft electrically powered hydroplane named An Stradag to a new world water speed record. Piloted by 24-year-old Helen Loney, the boat reached an average of 68.09mph. The previous record of 50mph had been set some 16 years before by the same boat, then piloted by 75 year old Fiona, Countess of Arran. The new record was set in sunny calm conditions on Coniston Water, in the English Lake District, at the very place where Donald Campbell had crashed in Bluebird K7.


From electric speed boats to auxiliary power on sailing boats, our motors have a wide range of marine applications. The motor is ideal for this sector due to its compact size and light weight. The motor already powers electric propulsion boats in the USA through a North American dealer. An electric marine propulsion system creates a cleaner environment and a more enjoyable experience.



Saietta supplies motors to a number of universities globally including teams in UK, Germany, Belgium, South Korea, India and the USA.


In January 2017, SpaceX held the first Hyperloop Pod Competition with 27 university teams from across the globe. The teams are challenged to design and build the best high-speed pod for this high-speed transportation technology. The Hyperloop Pod Competition II took place on 25-27 August 2017. Saietta has supplied motors to a team that has competed in both rounds.



We recommend the Saietta 119R motors for go-karts. Electric go-karts reduce emissions and noise while having the same power output as a conventional go-kart but with the added fun of instant torque. Electric go-karts are ideally suited for indoor tracks.



We recommend the Saietta 119R motors for quad bike applications. Standard quad bikes vibrate significantly are noisy and require frequent re-fuelling. Electric quad bikes are perfect for the rural environment with minimal noise and high torque to tackle the terrain. The quad bikes can re-generate energy on slopes and the Saietta motors provide the same efficiency of up to 94% in generation.

World speed record for electric powered aircraft- 2010


Our motors have been used for multiple projects relating to air travel as power generators, or propeller motors. However one of main achievements was on September 5th 2010, when two of our motors helped Electravia pilot Hugues Duval set the world speed record for an electric aircraft in a top speed of 262 km/h recorded by Aero Club de France.




Having already designed and built the ground-breaking Saietta R electric concept motorcycle, we set ourselves the challenge to take the core concept and evolve it in to a Next Generation Saietta (NGS). Enhancements in battery technology meant we could double the battery capacity of the Saietta R, and consumer feedback indicated a need to refine the overall profile and reduce the seat height. Saietta developed an entirely new design with a bespoke second-generation carbon fibre monocoque with increased battery capacity. NGS has a new styling concept which simultaneously retained the distinctive character of the Saietta R, whilst also introducing an extra layer of strength and muscularity to the form.


Further building on the knowledge gained from the Saietta R programme, the design and development of the Saietta NGS concept gave Saietta Group unmatched experience in the packaging and integration of its motors, and demonstrates the pioneering and restless commitment to progress that is the foundation of the Saietta brand.



Early in the company’s history, Saietta identified a key market sector where its highly efficient and power dense electric motors could have a significant impact and application, and in order to exploit this we developed a highly innovative urban sports motorcycle, unique from the ground up – the Saietta R. This engineering challenge necessitated a number of pioneering design solutions, such as a patent-protected structural monocoque chassis and battery box. Saietta designed and developed every aspect of the Saietta R motorcycle using industry standard software and tools, and manufactured multiple generations of prototype.


The concept development gave Saietta Group an innate understanding of the challenges involved in packaging an electric drivetrain in to the most demanding of environments, and provided us with the knowledge and expertise to overcome these challenges for clients.



Saietta, and its forebear of Agni Motors, has a rich and winning pedigree in electric motorcycle racing. The winners of the first Isle of Man TT Zero race in 2009, Saietta has since wrapped up numerous race wins and championship titles across the globe. Due to the performance of Saietta motors, the 2009 race bike was still winning races as recently as the 2016 season – beating new competition and lighter bikes. Racing is key for Saietta Group in being able to test our motors in the most demanding and uncompromising of environments. Using the Saietta NGS as a basis, combined with new aerodynamic bodywork, Saietta Group is planning a return to setting records and winning races.


In racing there is nowhere to hide, and having powered over 80% of electric race bikes worldwide since 2009 and taken over 80% of podiums, Saietta motors have been proven to be the best on repeated occasions in the most testing of situations. Furthermore Saietta is committed to continuing this arduous and demanding examination of its motors as we develop and improve our products in to the market leaders of the future.



Saietta is the motor supplier to Volta, an innovative European electric motorcycle brand. The engineering team worked closely with the client to optimise the design and performance characteristics of the motor to their specific application and we retain an engineering bike at our UK HQ for ongoing development and testing of the electric drivetrain.


Saietta made a number of product enhancements to the motor for Volta which improved cooling, reduced noise at low speed, and improved efficiency. We have read these enhancements back to our standard motor. 



Our quadbike customer requested a customised motor for their application and Saietta designed a development motor with a custom-built shaft in conjunction with identification of a full re-work and re-test process. The development motor was successfully integrated and tested in the quad bike by the client and we moved into volume supply in Q2 2017.


Saietta demonstrated our capability to optimise our motor solution quickly and effectively for the customer’s unique requirements.



On 1st November 2005 our motors powered an 15ft electrically powered hydroplane named An Stradag to the electric water speed record. Two years later, we helped develop Firefly, another 15ft hydroplane piloted by 26 year old powerboat racer, Helen Loney. The boat was specifically designed for straight-line record speed with a design capability of 130mph.


Firefly had its maiden test runs on Coniston Water in the Lake District, at Record’s Week in November 2007. These trials proved to be a great success, proving unequivocally that the UK is at the forefront of electric power technology.
