designed in the grand tradition of open-air sportscars, the brand new vintage electric roadster presents riders with an impressively fast 36-mph throttle bike that offers top-shelf performance with eye-catching styling. vintage electric founder and lead designer andrew davidge says, ‘the new vintage electric roadster is our take on applying the thrill of a canyon-carving convertible sportscar to our respective ev bike segment. we set out to combine best-in-industry performance with a grand aesthetic inspired by the simple, yet powerful, european and american sportscars form the 1950s and 1960s eras.’

optimized for performance and comfort, the new design starts with a hydroformed aluminum frame for the optimal blend of lightweight strength. front suspension is standard: an MRP inverted-fork system supplies 60mm of front wheel travel to absorb road irregularities. the roadster’s attached polished alloy seat-post features a saddle made of sable leather that matches the leather-wrapped handlebars to give riders a classic, automotive feel. the roadster also features a classic two-tone color wave where black and silver further accent the aerodynamic design.

the bike is outfitted with the best in modern ev technology. the electronic interface on the handlebar is clear and intuitive; on-demand acceleration comes directly to the rider. alternately, the thumb-throttle provides easy, convenient access to five smooth power modes. speed ranges from a nice, steady ramp to a powerful launch for riders. the vintage electric bike also features the rear regenerative disc brake, which provides incredible stopping power while recharging battery power in only 4.5 hours, after which the bike has up to a 75-mile range.
