Looking more like a vintage cafe-style motorbike, CrownCruiser dazzles with its new electric bike thanks to a bobber-style seat, low-slung handlebars and a minimalist carbon monocoque frame.
“Here at CrownCruiser, we’ve blended distinct styling and the latest technology to create the ultimate expression of the cruiser bike,” said company founder, Adebola Adeleye. “We’ve worked hard to create a bike that our design-conscious community can ride where they want, safely and in style – with minimum impact on the planet’s resources and their wallet.”
Taking input from experts in the aerospace, sustainable energy and motorsports segments, the CrownCruiser is equipped with a 250-W brushless DC motor for the European market that can provide pedal assistance up to 15.5 mph (25 km/h), or a 750-W model for the US that can reach a top speed of 31 mph/50 km/h. ).
Other features include a low-maintenance Gates Carbon belt drivetrain, a wireless charging bay for a smartphone, a 2,000-lumen LED headlight and tail-light that’s integrated into the seat clamp, rounded-out by swappable 36-V/11.6-Ah and 48-V/14.5-Ah battery options, the latter offering pedal-assistance up to 100 miles (160 km).
The CrownCruiser is further highlighted with a rider recognition anti-theft system, GSM location tracking and built-in Bluetooth.
In addition, there’s also an iOS/Android mobile app that can provided valuable trip metrics and a smartphone mount that’s located atop the adjustable carbon fiber handlebars. If that’s not enough, there’s a built-in gyro that can detect a fall or impact and send an alert to emergency contacts.
Additionally, the CrownCruiser is shod with chunky 26×3-inch tires mated to groovy carbon-fiber wheel covers and a carbon fiber front girder fork with a RockShox suspension to smooth out the bumps, while stopping power comes courtesy of disc brakes with 180mm rotors. And, for those who feel they need more halting capabilities, the front can be upgraded with a beefier Magura MT4 Estop 203mm rotor.
All in, the CrownCruiser tips the scales at an impressive 55 lbs (25 kg), including the batteries, while hauling capacity is an equally impressive at 330lbs (150 kg).
The CrownCruiser to scheduled to launch on Indiegogo on July 12, offering early-backers a special price of $3,150.
