Since the Torp Bike had been presented to the public, we are receiving daily emails and messages, asking questions about the bike and our company. We decided to answer some of the most interesting and often-asked questions in this post. Hope it helps.
Is Torp Bike a motorcycle or a bicycle?
Torp Bike is an electric dirt-bike. Our goal was to develop a motorcycle that combines both the lightness of the bicycle and the power of the motorcycle, so we had combined high-quality bicycle parts with a powerful electric powertrain. With some added designer magic and a smart App, we had created the lightest electric motorcycle so far.
When we`ll be able to buy the bike?
We had presented the bike at the beginning of 2020 and we’ve received a really great response from both the e-biking and motocross community. Now we are working on the last details and planning on the commercial release for the EU market by the end of 2021. The rest of the world will have to wait a bit, but no worries, we are coming to you soon.
What will be the cost of the bike?
The starting price for the bike is 7000 eur+VAT (shipping is not included). You will be able to order an extra battery, which will cost 900 eur+VAT.
Is Torp Bike street legal?
No, Torp Bike is made for off-road only. Since we were experimenting with the weight/power ratio, we decided to go all out, getting rid of the limitations that come with the street-legal version. We had sacrificed the time on the road for the wild rides on the tracks. The up-side is that every time you sit on the Torp Bike, you know it`s time to have fun.
I am a beginner. I`m afraid I am not up to the task…
No worries! Torp Bike has three power-modes through which you`ll be able to adjust the power of the bike to your skill. Start off in a baby-mode, practice in rooky-green, and perform in torp-red. Torp Bike is easy to use and a perfect vehicle to start your motocross carrier with.
Can I order the Torp Bike frame separately?
We are flattered that many of you like the frame so much, you would like to order it for your custom e-bike. Torp is a company that deals with the development and innovation of powertrain components for electric vehicles and even though we had designed the cool frame for the Torp Bike in-house, we are not producing it for re-sale. You can order the frame with the rest of the bike. 🙂
What about the BMS and Controller? Can I order them separately?
Not at the moment, but they will be ready by the end of the year. We are working on the perfected version of the Controller that will be easily adaptable to the most popular e-bike brands on the market and which will outshine other similar products out there. Just wait and see.
