The Audi E-Bike’s frame is made of aluminium and is outfitted with high-quality components such as Braking IN.CA.S disc brakes, an Ohlins fork and shock, and Sram components for the chain, shifters, and derailleur. There are also premium Italian touches, such as Vittoria tyres and a Sella Italia saddle. The Ohlins gear has 7.1in suspension travel, which is more than the 6.7in provided by the XMF 1.7.
The Audi E-Bike exudes luxury and refinement. This upmarket bike is inspired by the brand’s RS Q E-Tron E2 electric Dakar Rally racer, and it features high-end specifications that will impress bike enthusiasts. Fantic’s XMF 1.7 electric bike features a 250W Brose motor, which is also found in Harley-Serial Davidson’s 1 Bash/Mtn and is powered by Fantic’s 720Wh battery. Although the top speed or range is not yet revealed, this combination produces an impressive 66ft/lb of torque.
The power pack on the Audi E-Bike is significantly larger than that on the Bash/Mtn, which has a range of 30 to 95 miles depending on conditions. Furthermore, the Audi E-Bike has four levels of electric assistance, ranging from a mild Eco mode to a full-on Boost mode, which is similar to other Brose-powered E-Bikes.
Price & Availability
The Audi electric mountain bike is available in three sizes and costs $10,200. This limited-edition model costs more than competitors like the $3,999 Bash/Mtn, the GMC Hummer E-Bike, and the more powerful $5,499 Jeep E-Bike. The price is, however, justified for the bike’s large battery, the use of other well-known parts, and Audi’s exclusive design.
