What do you receive for $10,800 USD with Audi’s newest electric mountain bike?
The launch of an electric mountain bike has expanded the product range of German luxury automaker Audi. Inspired by the company’s electric Dakar Rally racer, the RS Q e-tron E2, the e-bike is based on the XMF 1.7 model and has been developed in collaboration with Italian bike maker Fantic.
Audi’s newest electric mountain bike features a 250W Brose motor and a 720Wh battery, delivering a peak torque of 66ft/lb. With a larger power pack than Harley-Davidson’s Bash/Mtn, it boasts a range of 48 to 152 kilometers. However, the top speed has not been disclosed by Audi.
The e-bike offers four different electric modes, including Eco, Sport, Tour, and Boost. It is made from aluminum and uses components from Porsche’s eBike lineup, excluding the motor and battery.
Andrew Doyle, Director of Audi UK, said, “Produced in cooperation with Fantic, the Audi electric mountain bike is another fantastic example of how we can expand our mobility offering to customers that extends beyond the award-winning models they drive.”
The Audi e-bike’s braking system includes Braking IN.CA.S disc brakes, an Öhlins fork and shock, and Sram components for the chain, shifters, and derailleur. The bike’s Vittoria tires and Sella Italia saddle are Italian-made.
Audi’s newest electric mountain bike is available as a special edition model in three different sizes, with prices starting from $10,800 USD.
