The e-bike manufacturer wants to help riders get from A to B faster with its first high-speed model. The VanMoof V is the company’s first hypercycle, which will be able to reach a top speed of 31 MPH (50 km / h).
VanMoof presents this as a substitute for city life and longer travel. The VanMoof V will have two-wheel drive, thicker tires, a new frame design and front and rear suspension, which could make longer journeys more comfortable. Other features include intelligent engine management, VanMoof Turbo Boost, Kick Lock for keyless locking, automatic gear changes and anti-theft measures.
Details about the e-bike range have not been revealed, but VanMoof noted that the battery has a capacity of 700 wH. It has a battery capacity of 504 Wh and a promised range of 60-150 km (37-93 miles). The company is selling what can increase the range, but it is not clear whether the device will be compatible with VanMoof V.
Speed limits vary by city and county, and the e-bike will have the appropriate integrated speed settings. While developing VanMoof V, the company plans to work with lawmakers and local authorities on e-bike rules, including geographic fences and speed regulations.
VanMoof plans to begin shipping the hypercycle by the end of 2022. The VanMoof V costs $ 3,498 / £ 3,498 / £ 3,498. The company offers bookings only on call for 20 USD / 20 £ / 20 € starting today, and current clients receive first instructions. Alternatively, you can join the waiting list at. Reservation codes will be sent periodically.
