Honestly it looks very fishy to me..
This looks waaaay to much like a Hyosung GT 650R, Roehr could just as well have bought a GT 650R, converted it and sold it on as their own..

I know, but IMO this is just to thin..

Roehr can do better than that..
This is a Hyosung GT 650R-E in my eyes, not a Roehr.

OK, I see what you're saying.

They probably can do better than that, but they need to sell motorcycles. So if they've developed a good power train for this bike they can build on its success. How many electric bikes have we seen as 3D renderings that look great but never make it to production? This at least proves that Roehr is serious about selling bikes.

Now I just need $18K :D

Looking Good!

Yeah, I don't think Roehr is trying to hide the fact that this is basically a Hyosung conversion. I'm sure he'd come right out and say, but maybe he's got a deal to buy the bikes w/o motors, trannies, etc.

I'd love to see Hyosung or any big MC co. let him guide a mass production for this or something similar into the tens of thousands. Only then would we see a cost being competitive with comparable ICE bikes.

$10-20K is not really that much for a new bike. Of course Hyosungs are not in that range, but there's plenty that are. ...And Roehr is a small co., so probably built/converted by hand with lots of attention to detail.

The bike is available now. We are in the process of delivering the first few units by the end of the month. You should expect to wait about 6 weeks for delivery from the time it's ordered.

That's awesome that you are producing a electric motorcycle with good performance that people can buy now! You may be the only company in the US that can claim that! Keep up the good work. If i didnt love converting so much I would definitely be counting my dough for one of these.

Wow. Saving the press release for when a product is actually available.

'nuff said.

Yep, that is fantastic - a real sport performance electric, at a more manageable price - and actually in production.

Hey Roehrcycleguy,

Any chance you have some pics of the guts? You know how we love the technical nitty-gritty of the build.

Thanks.

P.S. The more I look at it, the more I like it.
