In an age of alternative energy stigmas, electric-powered means of transportation are steadily gaining traction in popularity – from motorcycles to self-driving electric cars to electric bikes. The Avionics V1 falls in the latter category while still maintaining an almost retro appearance. Style, grace, and sustainability; what’s not to like?
Powering the V1 is a 5,000-watt brushless electric engine that propels that sleek ride to top speeds of 36 mph and a range of around 75 miles on a full charge thanks to its lithium-ion battery. Additionally, a chrome-plated headlight and bright LED taillight keep you visible come nightfall while 203 mm disc brakes, a steel frame, and 26-inch handsome spoked wheels adorn the ride with class. And speaking of class, a Jatoba wooden saddle and handgrips – along with a wooden headlight bucket, brake levers, fork covers, and motor case all add a touch of classic appeal to the V1. Preorders for the ride start this September.
