Pursang E-Monitor electrical bike takes pre-orders
The Spanish electrical bike firm has been within the means of beginning anew for the final couple of years.
We noticed them in individual on the 2019 Barcelona Auto Present, the place we had the prospect to check out an early production prototype up close.
Earlier this yr the corporate began low-volume production of their light electric motorcycles, with supply anticipated in October of this yr.
The primary run will see simply 24 bikes produced, with every getting a premium carbon fiber end to distinguish it from future manufacturing Pursang E-Tracks.
The bike is powered by an 11kW (14.75 hp) Bosch electrical motor that propels the E-Monitor as much as a prime velocity of 120 km/h (75 mph). It’s not precisely going to offer a Zero SR/F a run for its cash on the monitor, however it is going to get riders on the freeway.

The E-Monitor joins a rising listing of sunshine electrical bikes popping out of Europe. We’ve seen numerous examples currently from Swedish firm CAKE, including their Kalk INK models that carry the value down under $10k. CAKE’s countrymen at RGNT Bikes additionally provide a Swedish electrical bike with related velocity and vary specs on their RGNT No. 1 electrical bike.
