The purpose of the present study was to estimate the static strength of the frame structure developed from the initial tilting three-wheeled electric bike design using the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) assisted by the Static SOLIDWORKS Simulation software with a configuration of two wheels located at the front and one wheel at the back position. The main consideration of structural strength was seen from the point of view of the distribution of static loads using three types of materials (6061-T6 aluminium, AISI 1020 Steel and CFRP). The minimum factor of safety resulting from the initial design simulation was estimated to be 1.84.
