In 2008 I introduced you to a new manufacturer called Roehr Motorcycles and to its new gas powered 1250 SC sportbike. And now Walter Roehrich is making a big jump in the universe of electric bikes with the launch of 3 different superbike models: an entry level called the eSupersport ($16,965), the eSuperbike to raise the bar for electric motorcycle to a whole new level ($27,595) and the eSuperbike RR (for track or street) designed to race in the current e-Power Racing Series ($34,495) Can Ferrari red, European design, American production, speed and performance convince you to ride electric?
The entry level eSupersport is a sportbike, equipped with quality suspension, brakes and running gear: 41mm inverted front forks, single shock rear suspension with progressive linkage, dual 300mm front brake discs and light weight 17 inch aluminum wheels. Power is via a single AC Induction Motor producing 48hp, and 8000 RPM capability. AC motor technology, with it’s higher efficiency, superior reliability and efficient energy regeneration has proven itself superior to it’s DC motor counterpart.
The eSuperBike is powered by dual AC induction motors, producing 96hp combined with our high power 7.7Kwh battery pack to satisfy your arm wrenching acceleration. Equipped with an Ohlins, fully adjustable, rear shock for exceptional response and performance as well as increased stopping power from powerful dual Brembo 4 piston front brakes. The Flagship eSuperbike RR is designed to race, features, 43mm, Ohlins, fully adjustable inverted front forks, 320mm Brembo brake rotors with 4 piston radial calipers and verylight weight aluminum racing wheels with race performance tires. All bikes come with an on-board chargers, 15 amp or 6 amp rate, and although not officially published, charging times seems to be from 3 to 6 hours depending of the model. The 3 e-Superbikes are available and ready to order. All technical information at Roehr Motorcycles.
