2000 Watt Brinco Electric Dirt Bike by Bultaco
When Spanish motorcycle manufacturer Bultaco announced it’s return to the market last year, we were expecting some new electric motorbikes. What we weren’t necessarily expecting was an electric bicycle. For the first product launched in its second life, Bultaco has shrunk its electric powertrain technology down and put it to asphalt and dirt in the form of a full-throttle electric-assist mountain bike: the Brinco e-bike.
At the heart of the Brinco design is an electric drive comprising a rear wheel-mounted 2-kW motor and a downtube-secured 1.3-kWh lithium-ion battery. That motor puts out 44 lb-ft (60 Nm) of torque, and its output is governed by three riding modes. Eco mode gives the rider up to 800 watts to work with and up to around 50 miles (80 km) of electric-assisted pedaling. Tour mode provides up to 31 miles (50 km) of range, capping motor output at 1,500 watts. Sport mode unleashes the full 2,000 watts of motor power, providing a fast ride that gets faster the harder you pedal. All modes offer the full 44 lb-ft of torque.
