Rimac Automobili is a Croatian car company better known for being the maker of the Concept_One electric supercar, but it is also the maker of the little known Greyp G12 high performance electric bike and the company recently introduced a successor to the G12: the Greyp G12s. First impression from the release of the new specifications, there isn’t a really big difference between the G12S and its predecessor, but to be fair, the G12 already had some impressive features.

The company claims that the G12S is a “completely redesigned and upgraded” bike. They did reduce the weight by half a kg to now 48.5 kg (107 lbs), but the peak power output, range and top speed all remain the same (see specs below).

The main improvement in my opinion is the upgraded battery pack, which went from 1.3 kWh to now 1.5 kWh. It could very well be the biggest battery pack in any production pedal-ebike.

The bike has 2 modes in order to make it street legal without a motorbike licence: Street-mode and Power-mode. On the Power-mode, the Greyp can reach a top speed of 44 mph (70 km/h) with street tires on flat surfaces and it can achieve a range of 75 miles (120 km). On Street-mode, the speed is electronically-limited to 15.5 mph (25 km/h).

For its motorbike-like performances, the Greyp comes at a steep price: starting price of €8,380 ($9,525 US).

Specification:

 

  • 70 km/h top speed (electronically limited)
  • 80 minutes recharging time
  • range up to 120 km
  • 12kW peak power
  • battery capacity 1,5 kWh
  • Li-ion battery
  • 4,3″ colour touch display
