Looking back at H-Ker Electric Cafe Racer motorcycle

H-ker Electric Cafe Racer was made in France by H-KER SAS company. In 2013. the company made a very well balanced electric cafe racer motorcycle that was produced in 5-10 pcs. They had full production ready, but eventually they failed to make their mark in electric motorcycle production history. EvNerds magazine was not born in that timeline, but we feel obligated to show you guys this model that deserves respect from EV World.


H-Ker Electric Cafe Racer has 140 km (87 miles) range on a full charge, with the 35 hp, 88.2 Nm (65 lb-ft) torque motor ( ETEK ) capable of delivering solid adventures on the road, especially as the bike only weighs in at 160 km (353 lbs). Back then, the bikes cost was 16.900 euros. Today electric motorcycle models pack similar specs for a fraction of that cost. Bikes like Super Soco or the upcoming Fly Free Cafe Racer. With limited electric motorcycles on the market in 2013., the cost was not an issue.
