Motorcycle startup Ryvid is showing off an all-new electric motorcycle that’s designed for the way you ride.
New American electric motorcycle brand Ryvid has unveiled its first bike, the Anthem. But rather than being bold, brash, and out of reach for the average commuter, the Anthem is designed with convenience and affordability in mind.
First of note is the adjustable ride height, dubbed Ergo-Easy. This includes being able to adjust the seat height between 30 inches to 34 inches right out of the factory rather than riders needing to get aftermarket parts to accomplish this. The front suspension and rear shock also have adjustable damping.
Other important aspects include the removable 65-lb battery pack and, more importantly, the weight. The Anthem weighs only 240 pounds, less than half the weight of your average motorcycle. This means you can reach the top speed of 75 mph pretty quickly.
The only drawback to this lightweight approach is how long that battery lasts. It has a capacity of only 4.3 kWh, meaning that you can only go 75 miles on “Eco Mode” and only 50 miles on “Sport Mode.”
To also offer better accessibility to people without a ton of money to burn, the Ryvid Anthem will cost only $7,800. Ryvid is planning a run of 1,000 as its first production model. They’ll officially go on sale later this month, with deliveries expected to start next summer.
