This putting new electrical motorcycle is called the EMoS WYLD from the Australian firm Electrical Mobility Options. Designed with conventional cruiser bike geometry, the WYLD seems to be something however conventional.
EMoS WYLD electrical cruiser introduced
At first look, the EMoS WYLD appears to be the reply to the query, “What would occur for those who designed an electrical cruiser motorbike with out ever seeing a gasoline cruiser motorbike earlier than?”
Certain, all the key cruiser design elements are there. You’ve received the platform footrests as an alternative of conventional pegs, the laidback seating place, the cozy saddle with deep bucket, and even a set of ape hanger handlebars.
However the body takes on a completely new design, due to the design freedom afforded by not needing to construct a motorcycle round an engine.
Plus, as Drivespark factors out, the WYLD is appropriately spec’d to permit non-motorcycle license holders to get their trip on as nicely.
That’s as a result of regardless of the excessive efficiency look of the bike, it’s really nearer to moped efficiency ranges.
The highest pace of simply 50 km/h (31 mph) retains it authorized with only a automotive driver’s license, and the three completely different fashions with energy ranges starting from 1.5 kW to three kW implies that the bike isn’t more likely to get away from anybody — at the very least not too rapidly.
Because the motor energy will increase from 1.5 kW to 2 kW to three kW in every of the three fashions, the battery capability additionally will increase from 720 Wh 1.2 kWh to 1.8 kWh, respectively.
The WYLD’s 60V battery pack can also be detachable through the aspect of the bike, as seen within the video beneath.
If the large 18-inch tires didn’t give a easy sufficient trip already, the telescopic entrance suspension fork and twin rear coilover shocks ought to get the job performed.
And the 82 kg (181 lb) electrical motorcycle comes with a full complement of road-worthy options together with flip alerts, horn, and LCD show.
Whereas the WYLD isn’t quick (and even notably wild), it sure seems affordable. The bike begins at simply $2,999 AUD (US$2,200).
However because you’ve received to be in Australia to get your fingers on one, I’ll follow an American electric moped for now.
