The Retro-Styled Munro Motor 2.0 eBike

Beijing Munro Electric Vehicle is about to make a big splash in the world of small electric motorcycles. The Chinese company has developed one of the coolest-looking e-bikes around, called “Munro 2.0”, which got exposed at CES 2017. The idea of Munro motorbike is initially inspired by and styled after the iconic 1920s Indian Motorcycle. And its brand name, “Munro”, is in honor of Burt Munro, who set a land speed record on an Indian motorcycle. Behind it is a spirit of pursuing perfection and being loyal to dream. aside from its clean, retro aesthetic, Munro Motor’s ‘2.0’ eBike looks a shade different from the rest of the electric bicycle group — it doesn’t have conventional bike pedals. Instead, it features motorcycle-style pegs for resting your feet on, with sparkling shock-absorbers front and rear, keeping riders rolling along in comfort. The bike is a heavyweight weighing around 35 kg, and unlike it’s counterparts it doesn’t force people to pedal it around while putting their legs through a lot of fatigue. A Bosch electric motor is integrated to the rear wheel, plus space for two battery packs inside the frame’s triangle, which according to the manufacturer are capable of speeds of 28 mph (45 kmh) with a range of up to 30 miles per charge (per battery pack). With both battery packs fully charged, the ‘2.0’ can be ridden for up to 60 miles before needing a recharge, with no leg-work necessary. Cruising along at relatively high speeds of course begs the question towards how riders will slow the elegant eBike down. The Chinese company has enhanced the bike’s safety by fixing a set of four caliper brakes, which is two on each wheel.
