Fuell’s high-range Fllow electric motorcycle now available for pre-order

The world of transportation is undergoing a significant shift towards sustainability. As the demand for cleaner and more efficient modes of transportation grows, electric motorcycles have emerged as a promising alternative to their traditional gasoline-powered counterparts.

Indeed, many performance-oriented concepts have made headlines in recent years. One of them is the Fuell Fllow electric motorcycle, the most recent brainchild of Erik Burrell, best known for founding Buell Motorcycles.

Erik Buell announced Fuell, his new electric motorcycle venture, back in 2019 and said that the company would soon begin work on its first electric motorcycle. But then the COVID-19 pandemic was declared, and the motorcycle disappeared from the public eye. Now, a few years later, Fuell Fllow is finally available, and the company has shared more motorcycle details.

According to the company, Fuell Fllow is “an urban e-commuter that captures the essence of freedom and innovation – fusing exhilarating performance, exceptional range, and sustainable mobility into a single extraordinary and future-proof machine.”

This mid-sized motorcycle claims to have the luggage capacity and practicality of a large scooter, with 10 gallons of total storage and space for a passenger.

The Fuell Fllow is powered by a proprietary electric wheel motor that generates optimal power flow – a very high torque of 750 Nm (553 lb-ft). The motor comes in two power outputs – 47 hp continuous for the Fllow-1S and 15 hp continuous for the entry-level Fllow-1. The 400 pounds (180 kg) bike has a top speed of 85 mph (140 km/h) and accelerates from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.5 seconds.

Packing a high-capacity 10 kWh battery, the motorcycle has 150 miles (240 km) of urban range on a full charge and a quick charging port to use existing stations. You can charge your Fllow from 0-100% in under 30 minutes. Topping up from 20-90%, the most common charging cycle can be done even faster – in less than 15 minutes.

Lightweight alloy castings, including a magnesium monocoque, make Fllow exceptionally durable. Other features include a patent-pending Advanced Braking System, a front hydraulic disc brake with ABS, and drops the rear brake pedal – integrating the braking mechanism straight into the rear wheel’s motor. This allows for regenerative braking, generating power as you drive and charging your battery every time you slow down, enabling you to ride further on a single charge.

Fllow’s dashboard is connected to the rider’s phone, on which an app offers all practical information and functionalities, such as location, charge level, alarm, navigation, and service everything.

What’s more, Fllow’s electric powertrain allows significant savings on your daily commute. As per Fuell’s calculations, you can ride over 150 miles at an average cost of just $2.

In addition, the battery pack, rear wheel motor, and fast charging socket can all be swapped out and upgraded over time as the technology improves in the future. As for the connected dashboard, it receives regular updates, so you always have access to the latest software version.

The company claims, ‘compared to a gas-powered equivalent, Fuell Fllow has 60% fewer parts and can be assembled 40% faster, speeding up production and passing on cost savings directly to you.’

Pre-orders for the futuristic electric motorcycle are open now for $10,495 ($12,995 MSRP), with deliveries expected to start in 2024.
