Erik Buell is back with a new electric bike brand – Fuell – and plans to launch two models in April. He’s teamed with Frédéric Vasseur, team principle of the Alfa Romeo F1 squad and founder of Spark Racing Technology, builder of Formula E electric racing cars, and Francois-Xavier Terny, founder of Vanguard Motorcycles in New York, to create the new venture.
The initial models will be an electric motorcycle – the Flow – and a e-bicycle called Fluid. The Flow comes in two versions, one with 11kW to fit into the European 125cc licence bracket, the other with 35kW which suits the EU’s ‘A2’ motorcycle licence category for mid-sized bikes.
American prices start at $A15,500 for the motorcycle and $A4660 for the bicycles.
