NXT motors claims the bike is twice as strong and 25% lighter than similar class bikes. another difference worth noting is the price with the rage tipped to cost around €24,950. other electric motorcycles come with a costlier tag $117,000, like the arc vector which also features an impressive carbon monocoque.



öhlins suspension provides the bike with high performance handling and ride quality. though also likely contributes to that high price. the NXT rage also features a large 7″ color display that leaves the rest of the handlebars looking clean and open. the bars are mounted low enough to give a sporty ride position while high enough to remain comfortable for longer street riding and commuting.



electric motors offer the opportunity to throw traditional designs overboard, and to go for what is truly groundbreaking‘, explains harm besseling, director and head of technical development.NXT motors wants to offer its customers a motorcycle that uses the maximum of technical possibilities and offers them the ultimate experience. a powerful product, but also the data that an electric motorcycle develops, is the basis for that customer experience. in the pipeline of NXT Motors, alongside the naked bikes launched today, there are also extensions to other segments, including enduro, super sports and touring models.’
