Last month, it was reported that Harley-Davidson’s electric bike division has evolved into a separate brand called Serial 1 Cycle. Now the manufacturer has revealed more details about the first four models, which will go on sale in Germany and the United States next spring.
We are talking about city bikes with pedals, the design of which includes a mid-drive motor and a battery. Buyers will be able to choose between Mosh / Cty, Rush / Cty, Rush / Cty Step-Thru and Rush / Cty Speed models, which range from $ 3399 to $ 4999.
The developers have equipped the bikes with 250W motors, which can accelerate to 32 km / h (except for the Rush / Cty Speed, which is able to go faster). The Brose motor delivers four levels of power, while the Enviolo Automatiq automatic transmission delivers a smoother ride.
Each model will come with integrated front and rear lighting, a lithium-ion battery inside the frame, and a maintenance-free Gates carbon belt drive. This is not the first time that a belt drive has been used instead of a chain drive, but there are still few models in which this technology is implemented.
The most affordable Mosh / Cty has a 529 Wh battery in the design, which provides a range of 56-168 km. Since the design includes pedals, the distance traveled without recharging can vary greatly depending on whether they are used when driving or not. The design includes two-piston disc brakes with calipers for the front and rear wheels. The model is basic, therefore it does not provide the ability to change gears. This bike is the lightest in the series, weighing approximately 22 kg. It will be possible to become the owner of Mosh / Cty by paying $ 3399.
Rush / Cty boasts a 706 Wh rechargeable battery that allows you to cover 56-185 km without recharging. The design uses the Enviolo Automatiq transmission, which is used to automatically shift gears based on the pace of travel, cadence and terrain. The developers rated the Rush / Cty, which weighs 26.7 kg, at $ 4449.
The Rush / Cty Step-Thru has a 529 Wh battery in its design, which is enough to cover 48-144 km. The peculiarity of this bike is not only in reduced energy consumption, but also in the presence of a built-in glove compartment with a volume of 620 cm³. The bike weighs 27 kg and costs $ 4,399 to buy it.
The most advanced option is Rush / Cty Speed. This model is capable of accelerating to 45 km / h, and the built-in 706 Wh battery provides a range of 40-185 km. The bike weighs 26.7 kg, and to become its owner you have to pay $ 4999.
