The Volcon Grunt Is An IP67 Utilitarian eBike Made For Any Terrain Or Weather

Oct 26, 2020

The concept of a highly utilitarian motorcycle is nothing new, with models like the Rokon Trailbreaker dating back to the early 1960s, though as electric powertrain technology continues to evolve, we’re never being treated to a slew of increasingly utilitarian two-wheelers with bikes like the forthcoming Volcon Grunt.

Produced by a startup in Texas, the Grunt is a fully-electric motorcycle constructed around a bash-plated-shielded tubular steel frame and rides on beefy off-road tires shrouded by wide fenders front and aft. Soaking up the bumps is an inverted front-end and a mono-shocked swing-arm, while the ebike’s guided by LED lighting throughout and brought to a stop via a set of disc brakes. Generating around 50hp and 75ft-lbs of torque, the Grunt’s chain-driven 60V powertrain enables it to reach its 60mph top speed in just six seconds. Furthermore, the battery, motors, and controller are IP67-rated, meaning the Grunt can operate while fully submerged in water. The Grunt also features a trio of ride modes, an integrated rear luggage rack, a low seat height, 12” of ground clearance, and swappable batteries that each afford a 100-mile range. Slated for a Spring 2021 release, the Volcon Grunt is available for reserve now, with pricing set at $5,995.
