Electric Touring Bike

Electric Touring Bike: "


It looks so Bavarian I had to put on my Lederhosen …. it looks pretty cool. I mean the bike!

Assembled from the finest components available, this is the German-engineered bicycle designed for distance touring. Made in Munich, the 48-volt Lithium-Ion battery integrates with the 250-watt motor for a maximum speed of 17 mph, providing a 125-mile range on a single charge that enables round-trips between Nordlingen and Dinkelsbuhl on the Romantic Road. The battery can recharge 80% of its capacity in 30 minutes–plenty of time to enjoy a Radler during a rest stop. Handlebar control manages the 5-speed hub gear system to handle climbing as easily as flat cruising. The unique aluminum and carbon-fiber frame’s design is taken from a 1930s BMW R61 motorcycle, bearing riders up to 330 lbs. For long rides in complete comfort, its leather spring saddle is handmade by a Dutch concern renowned for 113 years as the world’s premier saddle maker.
