Audi has ventured beyond the realm of electric cars and unveiled a new electric mountain bike, drawing inspiration from its successful RS Q e-Tron rally car. Developed in collaboration with Fantic Motor, the Audi RS Q E-Tron Dakar Electric Mountain Bike boasts a lightweight yet sturdy aluminum enduro frame with carbon components, ensuring durability on rocky terrains.
Equipped with a mid-mounted 250 W Brose S-MAG motor, the bike offers four levels of pedal assist, including a powerful "Boost" mode designed for tackling hilly routes. The handlebar's digital display provides battery status and speed information. With an Öhlins fork and shock, Sella Italia Novus Boost EVO saddle, and Mavic wheels with Vittoria tires, the bike promises both comfort and performance.
While Audi hasn't disclosed the production run, the bike comes with a price tag of $10,000, positioning it as a premium option for electric bike enthusiasts seeking a thrilling off-road experience. The collaboration with Fantic Motor ensures that the bike is built to handle challenging terrains, making it suitable for adventurous riders. With its sleek design, impressive specifications, and the reputation of Audi behind it, the electric mountain bike is set to attract attention from both electric vehicle enthusiasts and cycling enthusiasts alike.
