Razor Breaks into the Retro-Inspired eBike Space with the Fully-Electric Rambler 16

Since 2011, Super73 has been churning out retro-inspired eBike-moto hybrids built for urban mobility. And after a decade of this emerging space rapidly growing in popularity, Razor has opted to try its hand at crafting a vintage-style eBike with the release of its Rambler 16.

The Rambler 16 is constructed around a completely rigid high-tensile steel chassis that’s paired with a kicked-up, hooped subframe and a dual-crown steel fork. Sold with an included battery charger, the Rambler 16 is powered by a 350-watt, variable-speed, brushless, rear-wheel hub drive motor that allows for a top speed of 15.5mph. The motor draws from a 36-volt sealed lead-acid battery pack that affords a range of 11.5-miles — or 45 minutes of continuous use — on a single charge.

Boasting a fairly compact 53.1″ x 25.2″ x 33.5″ footprint, the Rambler 16 weighs just 63.4lbs and can accommodate riders up to 220lbs. And, while the Rambler 16 doesn’t require a driver’s license, registration, or insurance, it is intended for riders aged 18 or older. Other highlights include LED head and taillights, custom Razor grips, a hand-lever-operated rear drum brake, a twist-and-go style throttle, a retractable steel kickstand, folding steel foot pegs, spoked 17” wheels shod in beefy street tires, a scrambler-meets-banana-style saddle with a 25.9″ seat height, and a low-mounted battery pack housing — which allows for an ultra-low center of gravity — that’s adorned in a 1970s-inspired graphics package.

Available now through Amazon, Target, and the manufacturer’s website, the Razor Rambler 16 is priced at $780. Backed by a 90-day warranty, this lightweight last-mile vehicle also comes 95% assembled straight out of the box, with the buyer only needing to mount the Rambler 16’s handlebars and seat.

Purchase: $780
