Offset Unleashes An Ultra-Minimalistic, 80MPH, Off-Road Electric Motorcycle

Aug 13, 2021

Based in Denmark, Offset Motorcycles is a fledgling electric moto-maker that’s taking an unmistakable back-to-basics approach to the design of its inaugural offering, the OFR-M1 ebike, an ultra-minimalistic yet high-performance dirt-goer with a thoroughly impressive spec-sheet.

Borrowing visual DNA from the street tracker and scrambler custom moto genres, the OFR-M1 features a subframe with an integrated rear luggage rack, an oversized rear sprocket, spoked wheels shod in knobby rubber, a USD fork, a rear-mono shock, a tracker-style front number plate, fork guards, toothed foot-pegs, and a chain final drive. The ebike is equipped with a 6.2KwH battery pack that affords 1.5-hours of ride time and can receive a 0% to 80% charge in three hours, and an air-cooled mid-drive three-phase, radial flux motor that’s good for 25kW (or 33.5hp) and 59ft-lbs of torque. Boasting a top speed of just over 80mph and a 0-60mph time of just under 4.5-seconds, the OFR-M1 tips the scales at just 253.5lbs — meaning it packs more torque than a 600cc i4 race-replica supersport while weighing as much as your average quarter-liter dirtbike. And, as its moniker would suggest, this forthcoming model is an off-road-only machine. Offset will begin accepting preorders for the OFR-M1 in 2022, though interested parties can sign up for updates on the company’s website linked below. Offset will also be releasing a street-legal dual-sport variant of the ebike known as the ODP-M1.
