Called the Spacebar, this foldable electric scooter is powered by a 1200W/48V battery, and sits 1,420mm by 200mm by 870mm when folded. According to Katalis, “It’s our way of making way.”

The company focuses on the future of mobility, automotive technology, and motorcycle customization, among other sectors. It collaborated with Kamengski, another art studio in Jakarta, to produce the two-wheeler.

Asked about the name ‘Spacebar,’ Katalis head of strategy Joseph Sinaga explains: “[The] electric scooter is hoped to be able to open up spaces which was previously not reachable by riders.”

Principal designer Julian Palapa was quoted by Designboom saying: “Spacebar is able to maneuver through the busy streets of the capital city, to support its rider’s daily commute. Yes, it is small but fierce, like a piece of chili.”

The Spacebar’s frame, swingarm, and front arm are made of aluminum. Equipped with mountain-bike suspension, disc brakes, and daymaker headlights, this electric scooter weighs 60kg and has a carrying capacity of 120kg.
