Based in Barcelona, Spain, Rayvolt is a young technology company that aims to boost the alternative transport sector by offering electric bikes combining technology and a retro look. If you are looking for an eBike whose design is inspired by that of our old biclous, the products of this Spanish start-up might be right for you.
Several VAE to choose from
Among these Rayvolt creations, it is possible to mention the Cruzer. This model is inspired by motorcycles of the 1900s. Its slightly curved frame gives it an appearance worthy of a 20th century two-wheeler while adopting a concept in accordance with current requirements. Indeed, this electric bicycle benefits from EIVA (Electronic Intelligent Virtual Assistant) technology, which is a set of systems used to control direction and speed, but also the driving mode depending on the environment.
Available in two sizes, the Cruzer charges a base price of € 2,800. The weight obviously varies depending on the size of the bike. It is 25 kg for size M and 29 kg for size L. Also note that this Rayvolt electric bike can carry a Samsung Li-Ion 48V 10.5 Ah battery or a Samsung Li-ion Dual 48V battery / 21ah, depending on buyer’s choice. On the motor side, we are talking about a Rayvolt Smart Hub 250W unit.

Rayvolt Torino and Ambassador, even more attractive models
For its part, the Torino is based on the Cruzer. However, this model displays a more sporty appearance. Compact, it has a relatively low center of gravity for better stability. Its empty weight is 35 kg. This electric bike takes its name from the Latin word “taurus” in reference to its right fork which is reminiscent of a bull. For the battery, you can choose between Samsung Li-ion 48V / 10.5ah cells and Samsung Li-ion Dual 48V / 21ah cells, while the Rayvolt Smart Hub 250W motor is still there.

Finally, the Rayvol Ambassador relies on a more classic design. With its weight of only 20 kg, this model is ideal for urban travel. Its engine is identical to that of the Cruzer and the Torino. Regarding their prices, the Rayvolt Torino costs from 2850 € against 3650 € for the Ambassador.
