Tech-wise, the RGNT bikes come in at more scooter-levels of performance, with an 14.75 horsepower/11,000-Watt (optimal) in-hub back electric motor, 7.7 kWh battery, a big 7-inch LCD touchscreen with GPS, LED lights, wire spoke wheels, and also J.Juan disc brakes (no abdominal muscle is provided).

Of note, all braking is done by hand bars, as on a scooter.

And also in a world where electrical motorbikes appear to be all about “the future,” specifically in terms of design, the RGNT machines tack much more in the direction of a traditional appearance, and also in this author/critic’s estimate, they do a good task it, with a design and look closer to the Royal Enfield INT650 than any kind of modern-day electric.

A small cubby for a phone and also handwear covers hides in the “gas storage tank” as well as RGNT claims they resource almost all the products and also components from Sweden as opposed to Asia. They likewise say each bike is developed by hand to order, with a 15-20 week delay from time of order. A EUR150 down payment holds your area in line.

The Scrambler (over) sets apart from the Traditional by way of various suspension, more enduro-style fenders, a various seat, various tires on Excel rims, fork gaiters and also a grey/blue paint scheme. Both bikes weight in at concerning 340 pounds/155kg.

Euro motorcyclists will certainly require an A1 degree licence to legitimately ride the RGNT devices; U.S. bikers will likely require a basic-tier endorsement, depending on which state you’re in.

RGNT posted a “we Boomers destroyed the Planet so go ride electrical bikes while you can” little bit (listed below) revealing the bikes, it must be a Swedish thing. We’ve added another RGNT video clip listed below that focuses extra on the bike’s tough components.

With a rather robust full throttle– concerning equal to a 250cc scooter– and also some respectable designing, the RGNT could be a fascinating choice for a great city bike that can pop onto the highway for a short little bit as long as you do not involve a lot hillsides.
