FUELL Electric Motorcycle and Ebike / Fluid and Flow interview

NEW YORK Electric Motorcycle scene is even more diverse now with a Fuell company products: Fluid ebike and electric motorcycle called Flow. Tarform bikes, Cake Kalk and now Fuell present their new EV creations for the first time to the general public in the Big Apple all in the last couple of months.

Fuell Inc. company

Erik Buell as CTO, Francois-Xavier Terny as CEO and Fred Vasseur formed a company called Fuell Inc. EvNerds was especially interested in this story because it surprised us that this old school internationally known names from Motorcycle World came up with affordable Indiegogo Campaign for a cool Ebike called Fluid and a Flow electric motorcycle that will not cost a fortune!

FUELL Ebike
Fluid is your best-in-class e-bike: beautifully designed, robust, and efficient. Designed for city and limitless adventures, it packs 2 removable batteries and over 1000Wh of energy. Its motor is one of the most powerful on the market. It features a full-color dashboard and 5 levels of assistance. Its carbon belt and 8-speed geared hub make it perfectly silent and virtually maintenance-free.
Flow is an electric motorcycle combining advanced technology, autonomy and safety. Amazing range (up to 150 miles in urban environment), power (2.7 sec 0 to 100kph), practicality (integrated 50 liter secured storage), technology (proprietary wheel-motor, connected dashboard, safety tech) and unparalleled driving pleasure.

Michael Borrero stepped in again as a news reporter for EvNerds and talked to the team and took some nice details of this electric vehicle prototypes.

Fuell Flow Electric Motorcycle

fuell-flow-electric-motorcycle-specifications

“Elegant design, urban range up to 150 miles, fast charge under 30 minutes, and the acceleration of a superbike. All this packed in a machine weighing less than 400 lbs. The Flow has numerous innovations like the exclusive wheel motor, the connected dashboard, and 50 liters of storage. Flow is designed to evolve with technological progress. The modular design allows for easy upgrade of the battery, the wheel motor, and the charging system.” – Fuell website

We like the fact what Erik pointed out earlier in the video: Flow electric motorcycle is made for Urban average income people. It is not an elite bike, it is a city electric motorcycle that does its job perfectly for a PREORDER PRICE of 10.995 USD ( 11 Kw version ) and 11.995 USD ( 35 Kw version ). For this amount you get:

1. Fast charging ( 1.25 -2.5h )

2. Up to 85 mph speed ( 0-100 Kph = 2.7 sec)

3. 48 Hp and 750 Nm of tourque

4. 10 kwh Li-ion  battery

We were pretty sure somebody messed up the Nm specifications of Flow electric motorcycle until we checked out the system voltage. It is 400V, and with the hub motor diameter, it may be really possible to have 750 Nm of torque. The only problem we see here is the EU homologation. We are unsure in what category this bikes would fit in. USA will find a way to sell them and register, but we hope that Erik Buell is planning European sale as well and that he will consider pointing out on the website all clarified information about COC and category where the bike would be registered in.
