Begin press release:
Electric vehicles (EV’s) are generating a lot of buzz right now. They’re being touted as an energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and zippy method for commuting around cities, with most entry level EV’s having an estimated travel range of 100 miles. But there are much more manoeuvrable ways to cruise around the city.
The FUELL Fluid E-bike designed by legendary motorcyclist engineer Erik Buell comes with an exceptional 125 mile range which aims to change the way urbanites travel and commute.
Erik Buell is considered to be a pioneer in motorcycle technology and earned his induction into the American Motorcyclist’s Association Hall of Fame in 2002. He has 40 years of engineering experience, and founded his own motorcycle racing company Buell Motorcycle company which eventually merged with Harley Davidson. His knowledge on two wheelers have transferred over to his new passion project, the tech packed, specced out FUELL Fluid E-Bike.
The FUELL Fluid E-Bike is an electric bicycle with a mid-drive bofeili 500W pedal assisted motor, giving it 100Nm of torque, that offers bicyclists exhilarating acceleration. The FUELL Fluid E-Bike is built with a custom aluminum alloy frame giving it both durability and a sleek appearance.
Adding to its durability, is that the FUELL Fluid E-bike was designed with the urban rider in mind. Specced with things like a Gates Carbon Drive belt system, and a Shimano Alfine 8-speed Geared Hub to make it virtually maintenance-free. Two batteries provide the e-bike with 1,008wh capacity and a 125 mile estimated travel range.
The batteries are simple and quick to charge, reaching 80% of its charge within 2.5 hours and a full charge at 5 hours. Both of the Fluids 504wh batteries are removable and if battery technology evolves can be upgradeable. Seamlessly integrated onto the center of the handle bars is a 3.2 IPS color screen that displays important information like speed, distance traveled, battery level, and 5 configurable motor assist settings. Lastly, the Fluid e-bike comes equipped with an adjustable suspension for ride quality control and hydraulic brakes for impressive stopping power.
This culmination of unique features offered with Erik Buell and industry leaders’ new e-bike make it a distinguished and ideal candidate for city commuting.
The FUELL Fluid E-Bike has already gained enough momentum through crowdfunding that it has reached its production stage with an estimated shipping date scheduled for September of 2019.
