Porsche, a well known automobile manufacturer, has teamed up with Rotwild to develop two new electric bikes. These bicycles, dubbed the Sport and the Cross, are considered to be luxury e bicycles worthy of the Porsche brand. Find out how this sophisticated level is reflected in the design of the new e bikes down below.
Top Tier Components
As we mentioned above, Porsche collaborated with Rotwild, ebike research and development company, to develop two ebikes. In case you are not familiar with the latter company, they are known for producing mountain bikes that were used to win World Championship Master Class titles and Olympic medals.
By leveraging this expertise, Porsche was able to develop a commuter electric bike, known as the eBike Sport, and an electric mountain bike, dubbed the eBike Cross. These e bikes share the following traits.
- Shimano EP8 motor
- Gets almost 16 mph
- Porsche logo under handlebars
- Integrated electronic gear shift and brake lines
- Adjustable seatpost
- Rechargeable battery has a lock
- Start button is on the center post
- Full-suspension carbon frame
- Smooth continental tires
- Magura upside-down suspension fork
- Fox shock absorbers
In addition, both the Sport and the Cross have a 265 lbs weight limit. Now that we know what features are shared, let’s review the unique characteristics of each electric bike.
Porsche eBike Sport
Intended for the daily commute, this e bicycle is decked out with many safety features cyclists need out on the road. For example, there is a rear light that is integrated into the seatpost and a Supernova LED under the flat bar style handlebar.
The e bike cockpit area also has a color display that shows the speed, current pedal assist riding mode, and distance covered per journey. Other noteworthy features are listed below.
- Shimano 630Wh battery
- Aero seatpost
- 11-speed Shimano gear set
- Magura Cockpit Integration brakes
Cyclists can procure this 48.5 lbs commuter ebike for $10,700.02.
Porsche eBike Cross
Designed to be an e mountain bike, the Cross lacks many of the electrical features found in the Porsche Sport. As a result, this Porsche ebike variation is about two-thousand dollars less than its counterpart, and only has the following features.
- Riser bar
- Crankbrothers Highline 3 dropper post
- 12-speed Shimano gear set
- Magura MT Trail brakes
- 47.5 lbs
- Shimano 504Wh battery
Price for the new electric mountain bike is $8,549.97. For those that want a Porsche e bike as soon as possible, next day shipping to the United States is available for an extra $500.
