We’ve seen most of the ambitious electric bike models this year. Meanwhile, a French electric bicycle and motorcycle company LMX has introduced a homologated version of its LMX 64 called the LMX 64H. The new model can be used both as an electric bicycle and an electric motorcycle.
It has the look of a classic bicycle and a complete traditional gearbox, but at the same time it has a 2.5 kW electric motor, so it could be compared to a motorcycle in every way.
Bringing the two structures together and in the form of mountain bikes, the vehicle uses two parallel transfer organs. The LMX 64H can be used as a motorcycle with a throttle handle as well as being pedal-assisted.
This light off-road electric motorcycle allows you to climb higher and easier than with a classic EMTB, with less effort for extended ride duration and distance. Besides, the pedaling torque sensor and the 3 assist modes make it possible to adapt your effort according to the terrain.
Thanks to its engine and its lightness, it has a torque of 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) at the rear wheel. The engine of the new LMX 64H can easily reach 45 km/h (like the new Trek e-bikes), without effort or even without pedaling at all. It features dual chains and freewheel dedicated, which allows transmitting the power with reliability.
It has a removable 52 V and 857 Wh battery system and even has a special lighting system and license plate. Made with high strength aluminum frame, the bike/motorcycle hybrid weighs only 28 kg (62 lb). With the 50cc equivalent homologation, the LMX can also be used as a moped, which you can take everywhere. In addition, registration is free in most EU countries!
