Design & Specifications
The design of the e-bike is so simple that at the first glance, you could simply miss the fact that this is an electric 2-wheeler that has a battery and electric motor. Only the control element on the top tube is visible to suggest that it is an electric vehicle.
The Swissrider has a sleek design, super-light construction. The e-bike is equipped with a Maxon Bikedrive Air motor. The motor is rated for a continuous output of 250 watts.
