Pave Motors Puts a Sleek Spin On Urban-Focused 2-Wheelers With the BK E-Bike

In recent years, the line between motorcycles and bicycles has become increasingly blurred, as a host of both established players and startups introduce a growing number of power-assisted two-wheelers that offer the best of both worlds. And while standard ebikes have admittedly become a dime a dozen, there are occasionally novel models that stand out from the crowd and manage to catch our attention, such as Pave Motors’ all-new BK E-Bike.

Initially unveiled approximately two years ago, Pave Motors’ BK model has spent the intervening time being further developed and refined, and is now finally slated to enter production. Equivalent to a 49cc moped or scooter, the BK is powered by a brushless 3,000-watt (4hp) in-hub DC motor that allows for a top speed of 30mph — as well as an output of 110ft-lbs of torque. The motor draws from a removable 1.85kWh 21,700-cell Lithium-ion battery that affords a range of 50 miles per charge. What’s more, the 50.4V battery is also capable of receiving a 0-80% recharge in only 1 hour using a standard home outlet.

Constructed around an advanced aircraft-grade aluminum chassis, this fully-electric two-wheeler comes loaded with hydraulic brakes with regenerative braking. On top of GPS, BLE, and connectivity to a dedicated smartphone app, the BK also boasts an advanced blockchain-secured digital key system as well as the ability to receive over-the-air updates. Weighing only 101lbs, the BK also features a trio of ride modes (ECO, Normal, Sport), 14” wheels, an inverted fork, a PU foam seat trimmed in vinyl, and an LCD display sitting just beneath a handlebar-mounted smartphones holder. Made in New York, the BK is also two-up-friendly and can carry both a rider and a passenger.
