Unlike most “modern retros” that combine contemporary style with vintage design traits, this entry takes relatively cutting-edge technology and dresses it up like an old-school bobber. In lieu of the traditional and less-than-attractive blocky EV powertrain, the team behind the Veitis designed an electric system that mimics the layout of a classic V-Twin engine. Moving back, we have the e-bobber’s faux-hardtail frame, which looks the part but hides a K-Tech monoshock.
Though its outward appearance is that of an old-school bobber, the EV-Twin sports a bevy of modern, top-shelf components including Motogadget electronics, adjustable forks, bar-end indicators, and a myriad of CNC’d bits smattered across the bike. In spite of its muscular appearance, the Veitis is actually comparable to a 125cc engine, making only 14hp (11kW). The EV-Twin does, however, boast a top-speed of 70mph and a maximum range of 100 miles. Only 50 units were produced in its first year of production, and unsurprisingly so; they don’t come cheap.
