Eric Buell is back with electric motorcycle company titled Fuell.  It has recently released an electric motorcycle called Flow and it is currently available for pre-order on the company’s website. The more powerful version of the motorcycle is rated at 35kW (roughly 47hp) with a sustained max speed of 55mph (but with the ability to hit an 85 max speed burst). Its rated range in city driving is 150 miles. The bike has a zero-60 time of 2.6 (yes, two point six) seconds and the motor puts out 553 ft/lb of torque.

 

The electric motor is fully housed inside the hub of the rear wheel leaving the entire body of the bike available to carry the batteries and charging system. That entire configuration has me very curious about the weight distribution of the bike, the way it handles bumpy corners with all that unsprung weight, and how top-heavy it feels at low speeds.

 

The battery has a 10KwH capacity and a rated charge time, with the upgraded 6.6kW capacity charger, of an hour and a half (or, without, up to 10 hours). With a 400-lb curb weight and a 30-inch seat height, it isn’t out of the reach of a shorter or smaller rider, and with a somewhat reasonable price tag around $12,000 USD ( Approx. Rs. 8,33,376) , it won’t price a lot of riders out of the market either.
