designed and produced in austria, the johammer J1 motorcycle is the first serial electric bike capable of reaching beyond 200 kilometers in range thanks to its innovative energy supply system. applying a chopper-like aesthetic, the electric gears and controls are integrated in the back wheel for a maintenance free ride. at the core lies a newly developed battery system; the shortest connection between the two axes being a direct line. the middle-frame is made from aluminum, which provides space for spring damper and battery pack. two high-resolution 2.4 inch rear view mirrors provide relevant driving information in a compact display.

  • Nice to see electric bike pushing forward. But sorry… This design doesn´t help create excitement over electric bikes, it´s hideous.

    what? says:
  • nice to have

    Fatih says:
  • Does anyone else think it looks a little like a snail…not the best metaphor for a high speed motorcycle. That being said it is nice to see people push the limits of alternative fuel consumptions in transport design.

    Jack says:
  • Like what? above said nice idea, but ugly design. Time will tell. Excuse my ignorance but what is 380 Km range in standard miles & what is the top speed of the thing?

    Wolverine says:
  • Love the idea and technology that went into this concept…looks wise.Jassi its hideous

    Jaco says:
  • Technologically it is indeed exciting but design wise it must feel like riding a pixie nespresso coffee machine…

    PPa says:
  • Am I the only one that absolutely LOVES that design?!

    Rex says:
  • No Rex this bike is well designed, I like it too. Why does everything have to look the same. I personally don’t want to ride an electric bike that looks like a carbon fuel based bike.
