A hybrid vehicle that would be somewhere between the electric electric bike and the motocross? This is just what Czech manufacturer Kuberg has just launched on Indiegogo. All mountain bikers are familiar with this variable height saddle, which allows them to lower their center of gravity on descents.

Kuberg was directly inspired by this technique to create a rather original machine. Specializing in electric motocross bikes for children and adults, Kuberg is expanding its field of action with this model called Ranger! With this adjustable saddle, the Ranger is as comfortable on “normal” roads as it is on steeper roads.

The saddle of the Ranger is mounted on a hydraulic cylinder and the platforms serve as footrests. The very low center of gravity allows stability and maneuverability on all terrains. The saddle is lowered and raised with a simple push button on the handlebars.

On the motor side

The Kuberg Ranger provides around 100 km of range and recovers energy when braking. It develops up to 14 kW and can reach 80 km / h for its most sophisticated version. The braking energy recovery system saves 15% of autonomy.

On the weight side, it only displays about fifty kilos, which is quite light for these vehicles. It would also be powerful enough to tow a trailer (optional)!

And how much does it cost?

The Kuberg Ranger has far exceeded the manufacturer’s expectations since the Indiegogo campaign is a hit! Over 300% of pre-order goals achieved. However, the first version (8 kW) already costs 3467 € (instead of 5300 €) in pre-order.

Prices soar for the 14 kW version to € 3,941 in pre-order, € 6,500 afterwards. It should be available from November 2020. Crowdfunding never ensures receipt of the finished product, but, be aware that Kuberg is a Czech company already widely established in this market. The risks therefore seem rather moderate.
