The goal of the project was to design and build a hydrogen fuel cell powered motorcycle to provide efficiency data as well as increase knowledge and interest in fuel cell based propulsion. Presented are details on the structural components, the fuel cell stack, the metal hydride hydrogen storage tanks, the power electronics drive and the data acquisition system. Waste heat from the fuel cells is used to significantly improve the storage capacity of the metal hydride tanks. Data and analysis of bench and road tests are presented.
