MINI Cooper has introduced a new range of steel electric bikes targeting the urban cyclists, boasting unlimited travel range for city dwellers with lengthy commutes, or for those who are constantly on the go.
The range consists of both a men’s and women’s “Classic” model, as well as a “Randonneur” and “Singlespeed”, which rely on the Zehus Bike Gen2 Heckmotor rear hub system that provides up to 40Nm of assistance via a 173Wh battery.
The bikes also feature KERS (kinetic energy recovery system) technology to recharge the battery in motion, creating “a hybrid drive with unlimited range”.
The Classic models feature what MINI Cooper calls a “super-light” CroMo steel frame that “exudes style and riding comfort in equal measure”, featuring a stylish Brooks C17 saddle and Juin Tech Hybrid hydraulic disc brakes, as well as a 7-speed MicroShift XLE groupset with a 11-24t cassette that’s paired with a single 44t chainring for “commuting with ease”.
Other highlights include Mach1 560 HighProfile 36H wheels with 35mm Kenda Kwick Trax K1053 tires, a SKS Infinity GT5 rack and aluminum mudguards that are color-matched to the frame.
The women’s version is offered in “Blood and Ivory” or Creme and Coffee” colorways, while the men’s sports a “Blue and White” or “Silver Grey” paint scheme for €2,499.
The Randonneur is fitted with the same equipment as the Classic, albeit with drop handlebars with either “Moss Green” or “Purple and Ivory” paint for €2,799.
Lastly, the “Singlespeed” is equipped with a Gates CDX Riemen belt-drive drivetrain, along with the brand’s CDX 19t sprocket and CDX 50t chainring, while stopping power and traction come courtesy of Shimano BR-M315 hydraulic disc brakes and Mach1 560 HighProfile 36H rims shod with 35mm Kenda Kwick Trax K1053 tires in a choice of “Racing Red” or “Tarmac and Sun” for €2,399.
