At the beginning of 2019, motorcycle industry legend Erik Buell announced his new electric motorcycle and bike brand named FUELL Fllow electric bike. Unfortunately, due to the novel coronavirus, the bike was not official then. Now that the pandemic has passed, the motorcycle visionary is now prepared to release the futuristic electric motorcycle.
The Fuell Flluid electric motorcycle, which was announced at the same time as the 2019 Fllow has since sold in the premium eBike market, and comes right after the Fllow electric motorcycle. According to Erik Buell, the new electric bike is the most radically novel chassis design that no one has quite done before. In his words:
FUELL Fllow: A Commuter-Class Electric Bike
The FUELL Fllow is largely a commuter-class electric motorcycle and its top speed is 137 km/h (85 mph). Although it’s slower than the majority of electric bikes’ top models at the moment, this nevertheless enables it to exceed the posted speed limit on almost any highway or interstate in the US.
If the spec list is to be believed, the bike might not be the fastest on the road, but it might be among the fastest.
Fllow Comes in Two Versions with Terrific Battery
The electric bike will be available in two versions, an 11 kW and a 35 kW model. The 11 kW variant will be eligible for lowered license requirements in Europe. An axial transverse flux hub motor is used, which frees up space in the frame for a bigger battery and additional storage. A sizable luggage space that can accommodate a full-face helmet is located above the battery.
The battery itself is a 10 kWh pack and has a 240 km city range (150 miles). The battery was built into the chassis as a structural element, a design choice that LiveWire also made for its upcoming S2 Del Mar electric motorcycle. With charge times of eight hours, 1.5 hours, and thirty minutes, respectively, Level 1, 2, and DC fast chargers can all be used to recharge that battery.
Fllow Support FUELL Mobile App
A FUELL mobile app will provide connectivity to the Fllow, and additional accessories can be added to increase safety through features like blindspot awareness and front/rear cameras. Thus, it’s likely that The Fllow won’t arrive in future riders’ garages for some time. When it does, the SONDORS Metacycle, Ryvid Anthem, and CSC RX1E will be up against a burgeoning field of lightweight and middleweight electric commuter motorcycles.
Pricing and Availability for the FUELL Fllow Electric Bike
The pre-order sales for the FUELL Fllow Electric Bike are now being accepted with a $200 deposit toward a goal price of US $11,995 for the base model, which is a slight rise from the $10,995 price target first mentioned in 2019. Although The Fllow’s US production has not yet started, reservations are being accepted in advance of the start of production.
According to the firm, 3,000 reservations would indicate sufficient demand to launch a crowdfunding effort for the first bikes, which would eventually result in self-funding as manufacturing rises.
