SUPERMOTO, developed jointly by MOME and John von Neumann University, made its debut in Abu Dhabi
The motorcycle, developed under the ProjectSupermoto concept, was designed for both the street and for the road. The project gave students of the two universities the opportunity to coordinate technical and product design work and gain a significant amount of practical experience.
Unique in both technology and form, the motorcycle was displayed between 28 and 1 June at the 3 October 2022 at the Electric Vehicle Innovation Summit 2023 in Abu Dhabi. Our university was represented at the event by chief instructor of the MOME Mobility Design Lab Dániel Ruppert, and head of creative sales Dániel Jávor. The grand-scale exhibition and professional forum provide developers of e-vehicles to share their innovations with each other and prospective investors.
“The goal was to receive genuine market feedback for the next phase of development, so for the time being, we weren’t focused on generating sales. We had many visitors to our booth and Supermoto had a great reception overall”, Dániel Ruppert commented. “In addition to the exhibition, there was also opportunity for a joint debut for our universities at the Sharjah Research and Innovation Center.”
Dániel Jávor added that there are many examples of foreign universities maintaining a branch campus in the Arab Emirates, and that in addition to the potential further development of the Supermoto project, they also looked at sales opportunities of the competencies and collaboration between MOME and the John von Neumann University during the visit. “Supermoto is an impressive outcome and, at the same time, symbol, of the latter, and not only helped boost the popularity of our booth at the exhibition, but also ease our way into conversation with local decision-makers, reinforcing the adage that good design sells itself.”
