Erik Buell is back, and this time he’s teamed up with Frederic Vasseur of Formula E and F1 fame and entrepreneur, Francois Terny to launch an electric motorbike brand called Fuell.
The Fuell Flow comes in 11kW (125cc-equivalent) or 35kW (A2-licence equivalent) versions and uses a hub motor on the rear wheel to leave space for 50 litres of integrated storage.
Fuell are claiming a city range of 125 miles for the Flow (which needs charging at a public charger), and an American price of $10,995.
The Fuell Fluid is an e-bike with a range of up to 125 miles that comes in 20mph or 28mph versions and produces almost 74ftlb of torque from two 500Wh, removable batteries.
The Fluid also uses a virtually maintenance-free carbon belt drive system and internal hub gears.
Fuell say that the Fluid will cost $3295 in America, but mention financing options for both bikes that ‘favour usage over ownership (credit, leasing, battery leasing)’.
We are expecting to find out more in the coming months, but Fuell claim that deliveries of the Fluid will start in 2019, with the Flow coming in 2021.
There’s no mention of whether the bikes will be coming to Europe, but MCN will bring you more news as we get it.
