BST Calls On A Ducati Designer To Craft A 186-Mile Carbon Fiber E-Bike

Since its inception in 2002, Blackstone Tek — better known simply by ‘BST’ — has carved out an impressive and well-deserved reputation for producing world-class carbon fiber wheels, though now for the first time in the South Africa-based composite company’s 17-year history, BST is releasing its first full-on motorcycle model with the HyperTEK. The futuristic, fully-electric two-wheeler was penned by renowned moto-designer and fellow South African, Piere Terblanche; the force behind such iconic motorcycles as the Ducati MHe900, Multistrada, Hypermotard, Supermono, 749/999, Sport Classic, and the Confederate X132 Hellcat Speedster, just to name a few.

The HyperTEK is constructed around a full carbon fiber monocoque chassis paired with a billet subframe, proprietary single-sided swing-arm with integrated mono-shock/linkage, custom front-end with single-piece triples and carbon fiber uppers, and a set of Blackstone’s 17-inch Rapid Tek wheels. In lieu of traditional instrumentation, the HyperTEK comes paired with a full-face helmet with an integrated HUD. Powering the Terblanche-designed mount is a DHX Hawk radial flux motor that generates 107hp and 88.5ft-lbs of instantly accessible torque. Set in turbine-inspired cooling-finned housing, the water-cooled motor is linked to a Sigma Performance (non-slipper) clutch. Tipping the scales at 450lbs flat, the HyperTEK boasts a 186-mile range on a single charge, which can be fully replenished in just 30-minutes via a DC/DC quick charger. BST says the HyperTEK will be built in “limited numbers”, though it has yet to reveal production numbers or pricing.
