From Lyric to SUPER73 to Onyx to Monday Motorbikes, there’s no shortage of fledgling EV brands currently producing pedal-equipped two-wheelers that blur the line between ebike and motorcycle. Despite the space becoming increasingly oversaturated in recent years, one new startup has managed to deliver an objectively novel take on a pedal-equipped ebike-moto hybrid with Async’s all-new A1 Pro.

The A1 Pro is crafted around a unique integrated chassis with a top-tube that runs the entire length of the bike, housing the headlight assembly, serving as the subframe, and acting as the taillight housing. The vertically-running structural member contains a sealed rear monoshock, linkage, and crank, as well. Running gear on the ebike includes an inverted fork, spoked wheels shod in 20” x 4.0” tires fore and aft, and a quad-piston hydraulic front braking setup. IPX7-rated, this EV small displacement equivalent also features a carbon belt drive, a 123-lb curb weight, a PU foam-cushioned 1.8” saddle, a unique LED headlight arrangement, and the ability to climb slopes as steep as 26.8°.

The A1 Pro is kicked along by an electric motor that generates 2,500-watts (3.35hp) of peak power and 73.75ft-lbs of torque. Drawing from a removable battery, the Pro-spec A1 offers a range between 80 and 150 miles. Offered in Moon Silver or Space Orange livery options, the A1 Pro features multiple power modes such as a road-going mode that limits speeds to 28mph and an unrestricted off-road mode that tops out at 35mph. Unlocked via a digital key, the A1 Pro is also loaded with tech and features cutting-edge amenities such as a  5.5” full-color IPS display, built-in fall and crash detection, connectivity to a dedicated app, onboard GPS, Bluetooth connectivity, geofencing capabilities, and “find my bike” feature, amongst others.
