Known for building premium e-bikes, SONDORS is jumping into the electric motorbike game with their sleek, futuristic-looking new machine dubbed the Metacycle. Built on what the SoCal-based company calls an exo-frame, the distinct architecture lends to a low and light profile, adding both style and better accessibility for those urban adventures and tight spaces. Powered by a 4000 watt hour, 72 volt battery, expect the Metacycle to provide 80 miles of ride time on a singe charge — that’s good for a Malibu to Manhattan Beach coastline coffee run (one-way), riding on Michelin Road 5 tires coupled with unconventional forks sitting upside down with rebound and compressions adjustment. Plus, a sculpted V-shapped saddle SONDORS says offers both comfort and control. Power is rated at 8 kW (11hp) nominal and 14.5 kW (20hp) peak, based on conservative riding. And, of course, there’s a place for your phone courtesy of an integrated device compartment with wireless charging, sporting a transparent cover so you know it’s still there. The Metacycle goes for $5,000 and can be ordered directly from the company site with a 90-day refundable $100 deposit; shipments begin Fall 2021.
