The Munro e-Bike. Retro Gorgeous And Painfully Slow.

The Munro Motor company is China-based and is in no way related, financially or otherwise, to the New Zealand Burt Munro’s family. The Munro 2.0 is the vision of Zack Wong who sees all Asians in very few years dumping their highly polluting mopeds and riding electric bicycles and motorcycles. Will the addition of the Munro name with great styling help sales? May be not enough knowing that on the pavement or salt maximum speed is limited to 28 mph. Tech sheet mentions 1 or 2 battery packs in the rear wheel hidden by panels on each side with a 30-mile range per battery pack. An USB port keeps your phone in full charge in case you need to call to say that you are going to arrive late. Should arrive in the US in April with a starting price of $1700.

    28 mph ? In the US where most exurban , suburban and urban streets have 35 mph ( or higher ) speed limits . Yeah that’ll work out real well here . And whats up with the pretense of a V-Twin on what is little more than an electrified bicycle ? Which is to say when taken in context makes this bike anything but gorgeous . Ludicrous comes much closer .

    Ditch the phony artsy touches to drop the price, add a big long seat like a dirt bike, put a couple baskets in place of panniers, and there are about 2 billion people it could be marketed to.

    Each bike comes with a plaid shirt and cuffed straight legged jeans…should sell like fortune cookies.

    At least it doesn’t have a radiator.
