The Ukrainian startup Delfast that got into the spotlight after getting the Guinness World Record for the longest range on an e-bike has updated its sports model!
The new bike, aptly named Top 2.0, boasts a 5000W engine instead of the 3000W on the original model. The manufacturers claim, that the bike can maintain high speeds even when climbing on rather steep hills without overheating. Additionally, this will make your acceleration even swifter.
The bike has the IPX5 protection – rain and even snow are taken care of with Top 2.0
‘We’ve also added small things that our clients wanted. Some of the updates include: New fenders, a protective case on the bike’s controller and durable double disk brakes ” – said Sergiy
Sergiy is one of the engineers in charge of prototyping at Delfast. Delfast went for a waterproof colored display, which might come in handy if you’re driving in bad weather conditions.
However, this was not all the news the company brought. Apparently, Delfast have set their sights on the B2G market, after the New York state has lifted ban on electric vehicles.
“We’re working with a major US city to equip their police department with our electric bikes. One of our bikes is being tested by this PD right now”, – Daniel Tonkopiy, Delfast CEO.
Daniel did not specify the city or the amount of bikes provided. We do know that the range of the police bike will be well over 150 miles. It will have at least 50 mph speed. This might not be enough for a car chase, but it is good enough for a small patrolling unit.
“We’ll see, it takes a lot of time to work with governmental bodies. We are optimistic and are already getting requests for a test bike from other municipal services in the US and Western Europe”.
