Bison Superbikes have designed and built a new electric scooter inspired by the past to provide an electric bike of the future. Launched via Kickstarter this week the team at Bison Superbikes are hoping to raise $58,000 over the next 30 days to help take the new electric scooter into production. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the electric scooter.
Pledges are available from $2500 or roughly £1900 with worldwide delivery expected to take place during July 2019
“The only electric bike that can be an electric scooter, a full on serious electric motorcycle, or somewhere in between, all with iOS integration and real time GPS tracking. This IS the ultimate future bike. Most “ebikes“ these days say something like “the Tesla of electric bikes”, but we were wondering, what is the level above that? We think we found it…”
“We love the torque provided with electric motors, and generally more is better. Such is the Bison Bike Mark 1, a 2×2 dual wheel drive 1KW(x2) 48v e-bike. We are also fans of vintage motor bikes, clean designs, and solid engineering. 20” x 4” direct drive wheels (chain driven results in lose of power due to friction – direct drive is power and torque direct to the ground, plus, no chain to get your pants caught in or break), 160 mm disc brakes, large banana seat, steel frame, 1 or 2 48V 12Ah batteries (depending on model), GPS tracking, iOS app for nav, manual, service, how to, video recording, locating, you just can’t beat this thing. Everything we learned from the Mark 1, we put into the Mark 2, with less power but more refinement (less weight (~65 lbs total), same speed). We intend to build 5-10 of each model with the option for more Mark 2’s beyond our timeline, (we have already successfully built both prototypes), as works of art, as much as a method of mobility. “~
