With electric motors becoming a standard, we are no longer surprised at brands exploring this technology. Dutch brand Brekr has decided to use the advantages of using a minimal powerplant to create a commuter bike that features a modular interchangeable battery for extra range.
The styling is a clear modern reinterpretation of mopeds as the bike is heavily oriented towards urban riding. Its lightweight frame makes it quite lightweight and its minimal styling makes it a joy to look at, not only ride. With its 1.9 kW/h battery, it provides up to 50 miles of range at a top speed of 28 mph. These figures might not stack up to performance electric bikes but when you put them in busy urban environments, they are more than enough. What makes the Brekr Model B stand out from its competition is the ability to extend the range with a whopping extra 100 miles by adding a second battery under its seat.
Brekr will release the Model B in the spring of 2020 with a price of $4,340 and a surprisingly low $10 reserve amount to be paid upfront before January 31. Head over to their website and pick up your Model B.
