We’ve seen electric bicycles. We’ve seen electric motorcycles. But electric mountain bikes? We haven’t come across many, and those that we have don’t have nearly as much versatility as Bultaco’s Brinco.
This rugged off-roader is the perfect mashup of a motorcycle and a mountain bike. It has pedals, 9 speeds on the back, and disc brakes – but it also has a hefty brushless motor powered by a 1.3kWh battery that can put out up to 2kW of power and get the bike going up to 38 miles per hour. All of this, combined with beefy front and rear suspension, make the bike an ideal steed for jamming around the backwoods. Yet, the Brinco does more than just switch on and go. It has three different modes for different types of riding. First is an ‘eco’ that acts as a pedal assist for up to 50 miles, then the touring for a top speed of 25 miles an hour, and finally the hefty sport that clocks in at nearly 40. Not bad for an electric bike. You can pick one up for $,4800. [Purchase]
