Warm-weather city-dwellers may want to consider leaving their cars at home most workdays, and letting the Novus e-bike take over the role of daily driver.
German bike brand Novus rolled out new electric motorcycle specifically for urban professionals. With prices starting at $39,500, the bike isn’t cheap. In point of fact, it’s more expensive than many full-sized cars. But the Novus bike is intended to make four-wheeled city driving look clumsy and entirely behind the times.
The bike boasts SOTA tech, and is incredibly efficient; the ultra-lightweight bike tips the scales at just 85 pounds, boasting heaps of carbon fiber in its construction. It’s a lean design, coming across as nearer to an electric bicycle than a motorcycle; the bike’s thin tires and hidden battery pack give it the appeal of a 21st century urbanite’s conveyance.
The Novus bike produces 18.7 horsepower and 147.5 pound-feet of torque. The electric motorcycle is limited to a top speed of 60 mph, but that’s more than enough for zooming around a metropolitan grid.
The bike’s range is 60 miles, and charging from zero to 80% takes just an hour. Ideal numbers for a city ride, allowing for substantial travel distances and a lunch-break refresh.
