Porsche presents two new eBikes

Porsche is expanding its range of e-mobility products and introducing two new eBikes – the eBike Sport and eBike Cross.

These two electrically assisted bikes are developed in collaboration with Rotwild using the latest generation Shimano motor and fitted with Magura high-performance brakes. The full-suspension carbon frame featuring an organic shape inspired by the flyline of the Porsche Taycan. The elaborate design, developed by Studio F. A. Porsche, ensures optimum reflection of light.

The Sport is perfect for daily rides, whether in the city or countryside, on the way to work or enjoying some free time, whilst the Cross is at home in the countryside, off the beaten path and away from roads.

The Porsche eBike Sport has a clean and compact cockpit with brakes integrated into the handlebars. The puristic design is emphasized by M99 LED lights embedded in the handlebar stem and seat post from lighting specialist Supernova. The Cross on the other hand is slightly more rugged with extra large Magura-MT Trail high-performance brake discs , while the mechanical Shimano XT 12-fold shifting system enables fast gear changes according to the rider’s needs and the terrain.

When Porsche Design gets involved in projects, the level of detail is second to none but that is also reflected in the price. The Ebike Sport comes in at £9,600 whilst the Ebike Cross comes in at £7,650.

Serial 1 Mosh electric bike powered by Harley Davidson

Electric bikes are more and more mainstream, they aren’t for ‘cheaters’ but for those looking for something extra on their ride. We have written about a number of different e-bikes from the Reevo, Ducati’s e-scrambler and the Vanmoof.

Serial 1 is a new company that is building e-bikes but is powered by Harley Davidson. The Mosh model looks to be the coolest model and one that is built for fun as well as commuting. Serial 1 also has the Rush model in three iterations which is more of a commuter bicycle.

The Mosh features a 250W of power offering assistance up to 20mph. It is fitted with a 529Wh battery which offers a range of up to 105 miles. It is an all aluminium frame with integrated batteries in the lower frame, making it easy to remove for off-site charging.

The Mosh has four riding modes that vary from Eco to Boost mode but what is interesting is a separate ‘Walk Assist’ button that engages the motor to offer a low level of forward motion to help easily maneuver the bike at walking speeds, especially if there is ever a need to push it up a hill.

Pre-orders for these bikes are open, priced at €3,499, with deliveries due in Spring 2021 for people in the USA and Germany for now with more to countries to be announced.
