Making a new venture in the EV space, Erik Buell, the founder and former chairman of Buell Motorcycle Company has signed a partnership deal with Frederic Vasseur, a French motorsport engineer and Formula One manager. The new tie-up has resulted in the launch of a new electric motorbike brand called Fuell.


The firm is currently working on two new machines as a part of their first line-up of products. The first will be a pedal-assisted bicycle named Fluid while the second will be an electric motorcycle equivalent of a small-displacement bike that will be called Flow.


The electric motorcycle will be offered in two tunes, an 11kW model that will fill in the moped market in most international markets while the more powerful 35kW model will be a more conventional urban motorcycle. The motorcycle will feature a hub motor mounted on the rear wheel which has the added benefit of clearing up an integrated storage space of 50 litres. The company has claimed a range of 125 miles (201 km) on full charge for the Flow. The company has also mentioned that the battery, chargers and wheel motors are upgradable, thereby allowing owners to customise their motorcycles as per the requirement.
