Aircraft electronics company Avionics is planning to release an electric bike. Sporting a retro aesthetic, the wood seat, motor case, headlight bucket, and brake levers are all made of Jatoba wood on the Avionics V1 Electric Bike. There’s also a 5,000 watt brushless DC engine that’s good for 75 miles of riding. It should be interesting to see whether Avionics will launch a series of electric bikes or if this project is just a one-off. Avionics could surely compete in the rapidly growing electric bike market.
Preorders for the Avionics V1 Electric Bike begin in September.
In its search of providing an easily-customizable standard motorcycle, BMW Motorrad recently announced the launch of its new in-house line of custom parts for its R nineT bike. The BMW Motorrad Spezial factory-installed parts range is comprised of hand-painted tanks, valve covers, rearsets, seats, wheels, and levers options. This coming fall, consumers will be able to build their own unique R nineT bikes which will be delivered to local dealerships for pick up. For more information on the Spezial factory-installed parts range head over to BMW Motorrad.
