Using electric propulsion is a way to simplify the powertrain part, but they’ve also simplified the cycle part, based on fundamental mechanics. The tubular steel frame supports the powertrain and the plywood seat which imitates the iconic shape of the gas tank and underlines its absence. It’s clear that the four builders of this bike were inspired by classic bikes, café racers, scramblers and urban bikes, looking at the classic lines of the past.While EV-bikes may feel a bit different, this bike is quite different in terms of design. Of course, there is no gas tank but the E-RAW also doesn’t have a traditional seat; it looks more like a wooden swingarm inspired by IKEA’s Poang rocking chair (which is adjustable in various heights). The bike is not officially revealed, but next to some pictures we have some specs:
The electronic heart is a powerful 80kW machine (approx. 109hp) delivering an incredible 180Nm of torque. The total weight is 167kg and it will reach 100 km/h in only 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 155 km/h. The battery is fully charged in only 30 minutes and will reach up to 185 km.
At this stage, the E-RAW
V2 V3.1 is only a prototype, but hopefully, it will get some traction (!) to get it to a production stage… and I’ll just have some anti slip on that seat when opening the throttle…
