London, UK – The Urban Mover is a pedelec – it only supplies power when the cyclist is pedaling.
It retails for £1149.
The bike consists of an aluminium frame and suspension fork to house the power system — a 37v, 200W brushless hub motor in the rear wheel and a 9aH Panasonic Li-Ion battery which slots in behind the seat tube. Full mudguards, a chainguard and a rack included.
There’s a suspension seatpost and adjustable stem, and a Shimano Altus seven speed drivetrain. Tektro V brakes do the stopping, mated to levers that cut the power when you haul on the anchors.

London, UK — Brammo’s Enertia ebike went on sale in the US the week of July 8, 2009.
The electric-powered motorcycle costs $11,995. US buyers will be able to deduct $1,199 from the price, though, because of the 10 per cent Federal Plug-In Tax Credit.
The Enertia is a clutchless twist-and-go e-cycle with a 45 mile range and a top speed of over 55mph. It can also go from 0 to 40mph in just a fraction under six seconds, according to Brammo.
The Enertia has a a 13kW (18bhp) electric motor connected to a 3.1kWh battery pack. A full re-charge from a domestic wall socket takes around three hours.
Brammo had entered two of its e-cycles in the recent Isle of Mann TTxGP. One failed to finish. The second Enertia – which ran with an 8.1kWh battery pack – came home third. (This version is not the one the average rider will be able to buy, however!)
