Dutch firm Brekr has developed one of the more striking-looking electric mopeds you’re likely to see. Having launched it in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium last year, the start-up is now looking to sell it throughout Europe after recently securing an additional €1.5m of investment.
On its website, Brekr claims it created the Model B, "because a logical electric moped didn’t exist."
The 45km/h two-wheeler is made from aluminium rather than steel and is said to be 10-30kg lighter than the average electric scooter as a consequence.
This helps deliver extra range – as does the optional second battery.
The 2,500W moped comes with a removable 2 kWh battery, which Brekr says is good for 50-80 km. A second battery pretty much doubles that.
They’re claiming a five-hour charge time and running costs of around one euro per 100km.
You also get suspension and hydraulic disc brakes at the front and back, plus a GPS module that keeps track of your bike.
The Brekr Model B is available from €4,499.
