On the occasion of the Intermot 2018 Show held from October 3rd to 7th, the German company Sol Motors based in Stuttgart presents an electric motorbike with a nice design that has attracted three European design awards!
Sol Motors wanted to offer a new concept of vehicle that they call "Noped" because it is neither an e-bike nor moped, their vision of the urban commuter.
Designed and engineered in Stuttgart, built in Germany, the Pocket Rocket is available in two versions a 50cc (L1e) and 125cc (L3e) with maximum speeds of 50 and 80kph from engines offering 6 and 8.5hp in peak
With a look reminiscent of the Van Moof bikes with its big central tube, the Sol Motors Pocket Rocket won three awards "European Product Design Award" "German Design Award" or the "Focus Open 2018"
Its removable battery placed in the aluminum frame offers 50 to 80km of range, depending on the driving mode, by the way, this machine gets its "pocket rocket" name from its power and put forward with a wheelie mode that will allow you to test your balance!
On the weight side it only displays 55kg and as for the price, it is not announced clearly on their site but it should be about 6000€ for the 125cc version.
