Beijing Munro Electric Vehicle is about to make a big splash in the world of small electric motorcycles. The Chinese company has developed one of the coolest-looking e-bikes around, called “Munro 2.0”, which got exposed at CES 2017.
The idea of Munro motorbike is initially inspired by and styled after the iconic 1920s Indian Motorcycle. And its brand name, “Munro”, is in honor of Burt Munro, who set a land speed record on an Indian motorcycle. Behind it is a spirit of pursuing perfection and being loyal to dream.
The founder of Munro, Zack Wong, is an artist as well as a big fan of custom motorcycles.
Before penetrating into the market of e-bike, Munro started with Munro 1.0, a handmade retro motorcycle. “But as people become more and more environmentally conscious they are changing their transport options. It’s forseeable that electric vehicles will be the mainstream in the vehicle market. Electric cars and buses have already begun to take over the world, as evidenced by daily sightings of EV brands like Tesla, BYD on China roads. But two-wheeled EVs are still a rare sight.”says Zack.
Here’s the brief of Munro 2.0:
• 450W Electric Motor
• Removable Lithium-ion batteries fully charge in 5 hours
• Top speed at 28 mph
• Titanium-Aluminum frame, “V-twin engine’ like battery compartment
• Weighed only 38 kg
• Range: 50km, up to 100km (within 2 batteries)
Obviously, Munro 2.0 is one of a kind, particular in design. And it’s true work of arts with great craftsmanship. “It’s not merely a bicycle but a piece of arts work in my eyes,” said Zack. Munro is meant not only to be an option of transportation vehicle, but also a lifestyle.
Munro gets around that by not even giving you any pedals. Instead, you get motorcycle-style pegs for resting your feet, a luscious retro look to impress your friends and shock absorbers front and back to keep you rolling along in comfort.
Munro is really attractive and perfect for hanging out in a city ride. We’re targeted on the bunch of youth that are sensitive about appearance and pursuing for a high quality of life. We regard it as a unique combination of contemporary aesthetics and modern technology.
The company has gone out of its way to create a bike that will stand the test of time, too. All the paint is covered in UV-protected clear coats to make sure it will keep its sparkly shine. The battery packs are replaceable and come with the clever addition of a USB port so you can charge a mobile device as you zip around town.
Of course, zooming along is only part the battle, you also have to be able to stop again. Luckily, the Beijing-based company has your back there, too. The bike brings you safely to a stop by giving you a set of four caliper brakes–two on each wheel.
Apart from this, it’s also a smart motorcycle. And there’s an app connected with it, which syncs via Bluetooth and feeds the bike’s status to the user.
Munro has launched online customization system, including the color, handle and saddle etc. What’s more, Munro has already announced its overseas strategy. The company will work with local dealers, mainly targeting the high-end markets such as European Union and North America.
“Ride the Future!” As the slogan goes, Munro 2.0 is a really personalized product that redefines e-bike. And it’s way beyond any e-bike or e-scooter available on the market.
*Munro 2.0 has applied for patents protection all across the globe.
