Emu Electric Bike Company have announced three new models, updated from their current bikes. The new bikes share the same frame design as the previous generation but they've had an overhaul that includes a new display and a bigger battery for a better range.
So what's new? Well, the Emu bikes still feature the same alloy frame, 250w front hub motor, Shimano Nexus 7 hub gearing and integrated lighting as before, but the internal Samsung/Panasonic battery has been uprated. The 374Wh battery is still available but there are two bigger options now. You can spec a 418Wh battery, and there's a 490Wh battery available which Emu claim will extend the range to over 100km. All the bikes still use the same in-frame mounting as before which gives them a clean look.
As well as the extra battery capacity, the display has been updated. In place of the black and white LCD display used on the previous models there's a large colour LCD which is designed to give clear and easy-to-use ride information as well as more accurate battery stats.
Judging by this pic of the screen that Emu sent us, it looks like it's also possible to set a start password to stop someone making off with your bike. Under power, at least.
The Emu Cross Bar witll be available in British Racing Green, and the Emu Step Through in blue or black. The price for step through and crossbar bikes is the same, as is the spec, and the cost is dependent on what battery size you pick. It's £1,199 for the 374Wh battery, £1,299 for the 418Wh and £1,399 for the 490Wh.
