CAB Recon, the electric bike that goes at 100 km / h

Awesome, this electric bike from the American brand CAB Motorworks! It can reach a top speed of 100 km / h and shoot down 0 to 80 km / h in less than 5 seconds. But it will break the piggy bank to offer it.

The most powerful series bike in the world. This is how CAB Motorworks describes its new electric bike that announces outstanding performance. Judge for yourself: a 20 kW electric motor that delivers a torque of 433 Nm, 0 to 80 km / h in less than five seconds and a top speed of 100 km / h. It speaks well of an electric bike, although all that distinguishes the CAB Recon a motorcycle enduro or the presence of a pair of pedals that are not likely brought to serve a lot …

Founded in 2013, CAB Motorworks is a California-based start-up manufacturer of power-assisted bikes and conversion kits for muscle bikes. The CAB Recon is his latest creation that is intended for a playful use enduro / DH. At the front, a double fork T with 200 mm of travel. At the rear, a coil spring shock with 250 mm of travel. What to send wood when the slope is reversed.

Regenerative braking system

CAB Motorworks opted for a 19-inch hybrid wheel assembly at the front and 18-inch at the rear to ensure comfort and responsiveness. The Recon is equipped with a braking energy recovery system that can produce 4 kW and restore up to 10% of battery life. According to the manufacturer, the engine brake is so effective that it does not affect the brakes if one adapts its steering.

As you can see, the CAB Recon is not a VAE for commuting in the city. It is a machine to have fun in the mountains or to taunt engine enduro bikes. Above all, these high-flying performances are paying a heavy price. Count $ 10,500 excluding options and shipping. At the moment, you have to live in the United States, Canada or Norway to be able to afford a Recon.
