Haibike, a worldwide locally sold electric bike brand, carves a place in the middle of the road with the flexible Sduro Trekking 4.0.
In the past, Haibike carried about 50 different models in a variety of sizes, component level, tire size, and frame option. Lately, they’ve reduced their USA offering to less than 20 models, and I think it’s a change for the better. One of the models that made the cut is the quite flexible model called the Sduro Trekking 4.0.

The M2S All Terrain R750 sits in the sweet spot of off-road, comfort, and commuting. The price is great, too, starting at $1,499 (early adopter pricing has concluded).

A few weeks ago, I traveled out to Long Beach, California for a work-related trip. I had never been to California (I am from Tennessee), so I was excited to see another side of the country.

A self-sustained vehicle powered by the sun is something of a holy grail for electric vehicles, but is difficult to achieve due to the limited surface area and high power requirements of full size cars. However, a smaller EV such as a solar powered electric bicycle has an advantage here due to its drastically lower energy demands.
Over the last few months, a group of solar powered e-bikes raced nearly 13,000 km (8,000 mi) from Lyon, France to Guangzhou, China. Electrek caught up with Jack Butler, who placed 6th in the race, to hear how he succeed on such an extreme trip.

Harley-Davidson unveiled its Livewire project two years ago almost to the day. While the all-electric concept with only ~60 miles of range was lacking compared to other models already available today, it showed that one of the most iconic motorcycle company, which is also obviously entrenched in internal combustion engines, is at least looking at other powertrain technologies.
At the time, Harley-Davidson made it clear that Livewire was only a concept (and good-looking one – see pictures below), but now the company confirms that it plans to bring its first electric bike to market “within the next five years”. expand full story
