The Swedish company RGNT Motorcycles has started preliminary applications for its very first model – an electric motorcycle with a very trivial name “No.1”!
At a time when the majority of manufacturers of modern moving electric vehicles prefer futuristic themes in design, the small company from Stockholm initially decided to focus on retro-style. But the stuffing of the novelty is certainly not old-fashioned!
The basis of the design is strong steel frame. The wheelbase is 1420 mm and the seat height from ground level is 820 mm. In addition the bike received 18-inch multi-spoke wheels, ISR disc brakes, front suspension inspired by the Italian manufacturer Ceriani, diode lighting equipment. An 8-kilowatt (11 kW at peak) electric motor accelerates the “first” RGNT to a top speed of 125 km/h. The 7.7 kWh battery provides a range of up to 150 km without recharging. Such characteristics speak clearly about the city residence of the new motorcycle, without any thoughts of long-distance voyages.
Another important feature will be an advanced electronic system developed in collaboration with Qamcom and Evolve. Featuring GPS navigation, high-speed 4G connectivity and a cloud-based service, each rider will be able to customize their individual profile, have the ability to log ride data, receive real-time software updates and other tricks. All control is entrusted to a 7-inch touch screen.
The base price of RGNT No.1 at 10,500 euros can easily go up a couple of thousand due to options such as chrome trim or better leather seats with stitching.
