Kuberg Ranger, an electric off-road motorcycle with 50 mph of range

Czech electric motorbike company Kuberg has introduced the Kuberg Ranger, an off-road motorcycle with an electric drive, which surprises with several details. The bike received an extraordinary design that combines the features of an electric dirt bike and an electric scooter.

The Kuberg Ranger is built from a series of handmade proprietary components, including a lightweight steel frame, a BLDC motor with a 14,000-watt electric powertrain capable of delivering a top speed of 80 km/h (50 mph). Kuberg affirms that if we use all the power of the motor with a single 1.15 kWh battery, we will cover 30 km (19 miles), and with the option of a double battery in the least consumption mode (ECO), we would reach 96 km (60 miles) of range. However, it all depends on the driving style and weight of the driver. Charging a battery should take 2.5 hours.

The motorcycle is equipped with a 19-inch front and 14-inch rear wheel, plus a 180 mm suspension fork at the front and a spring element at the rear. The Tektro Orion 4 hydraulic brakes are designed to provide a quick deceleration.

The Kuberg Ranger electric motorcycle weighs almost 50 kilograms and can hold riders up to 100 kg. A small trailer can be attached to the rear wheel. Although only 30 kg can be transported, this is still more luggage than can fit in a backpack. The trailer can be used to carry tools, hunting gear, camping supplies, tailgate provisions, or whatever else one might need to tow to with an all-electric dirt scooter.

The bike is currently available on the crowdfunding website Indiegogo. There, the dirt bike with 14 kW of power and the large battery costs from $4,545. Also, an optional LED set is available there for $616 and the double battery option for $999. The Standard variant, which will reduce the engine power to 8 kW, is being offered at the $3,998.
