In theory, the notion of an electric motorbike is a good idea and brings benefits which include easy charging, being cheap to run and eco-friendly. The problem lies with both choice and also the life and charge time of the battery; this is where a start-up by the name of Bolt Motorbikes comes to the fore.
The Bolt M-1 is designed with two driving modes which are helpfully named Economy and Sport mode. Firstly Economy mode, this is the setting which will go up to a speed of 20 mph while utilizing far less of the battery, this means that an average consumer can travel further without needing to stop for a charge. The second setting is the sports mode; this is designed to be used for off-road purposes, i.e. similar to a mountain bike.
The Bolt M-1 can go as far as 50 miles on a single charge, which is quite impressive considering an average petrol powered car is around the same in distance. The charge time depending on how you use it, is between 90 minutes and 5 hours, which is pretty good considering it’s an improvement on earlier generations of electric-powered motorbikes.
That’s not all; the bike also comes with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, which means that it’s possible to connect a phone to your bike, it’s going to be a surreal moment when scrolling through the connect options for it to then say, “connecting with motorbike” Images are below of what it intends to look like.
Thank You Bolt Motorbikes for providing us with this information
