Electromobility innovators Stilride have announced the final details of its first electric motorcycle. The Stilride 1 is the first drop from the Swedish company, who aim to rewrite the design rules for sustainable, lightweight electric vehicles using robotics and origami-inspired steel folding. Formerly named the Sport Utility Scooter, but now rebranded as Stilride 1, each motorcycle will be individually crafted and made-to-order at Stilride’s Stockholm workshop for delivery in 2024. The first series of bikes will be called the “Limited Founders Edition”, be numbered, and have black fenders and detailing.
Stilride has also revealed several key design and technology updates which have been made to optimise the driving experience and finetune the motorcycle’s design with rider and planet in mind. The ultra-lightweight chassis has been optimised using recycled Swedish steel to make it even sleeker than in the original prototype. The saddle now boasts an even more streamlined design and features soft padding and suspension for ergonomic comfort. The braking system is co-developed with ISR and will have ABS (anti-lock braking system) provided by Continental. The motorcycle also features a premium HUB motor system and will have a bespoke Electric Vehicle Control Unit (eVCU) that will provide riders with theft protection, geographical positioning, service diagnostics and battery status control.
“The Stilride 1 is the culmination of many years’ ambition, passion and experimentation,” said Tue Beijer, CTO and co-founder at Stilride. “It has been designed for both the motorcycle enthusiast and the design and sustainability purist. We can’t wait for our first customers to experience the pure joy of our ride and join us in setting a new gold standard for sustainable electromobility.”
An official launch date for the Stilride 1 will be announced this summer, with existing shareholders and Stilride community members being offered exclusive early access to place orders and secure a “Limited Founders Edition” model this spring. The Stilride 1 will retail at €15,000.
