monday motorbikes’ ‘M1’ cuts a silhouette that looks like a neo-retro scrambler, minus the heavy engine componentry that would normally occupy its minimalst, arched frame. in ‘economy mode’, the e-bike is tuned to meet california electric bicycle regulations — at 32 km/h (20 mph) and with a range of 56 km (35 m), riders can travel all day, use the bicycle lane, and park almost anywhere. in ‘sport’ mode people can rip at speeds of 64 km/h (40 mph), and have enough torque to climb the steepest of hills in san francisco.
