Fuel vehicles have at least 3 (three) disadvantages: low efficiency, generating exhaust emissions, and using non-renewable energy. So in some developed countries, electric vehicles began to operate as an alternative solution, because it is very efficient and without emissions. However, electric vehicles have constraints in charging the battery that takes a very long time. Therefore, the technology needed to reduce fuel consumption without reducing the performance of the vehicle. Appropriate technology to overcome this is a hybrid drive system, a combination of power sources on fuel and electric motors, which is currently applied to four-wheeled vehicles. As for motorcycles, hybrid technology has not been much. The design of a motorcycle with a propulsion system in the form of multi-mode hybrid is possible through the configuration of 3 types of power source that is one unit of fuel and two units of BLDC electric motor. Both BLDC electric motors can operate as traction motors and electric generators to charge the battery. To enable the multi-mode hybrid system to function, the planetary gear will be the connecting force of the fuel engine, electric motor # 1 and electric motor # 2. Hybrid multi-mode pattern designed is electric mode will be operated when the work cycle of the vehicle is in low to medium rotation, if the rotation of the vehicle reaches the mid-rotation until high speed then hybrid mode (parallel, parallel and series, and series) will be operated.
