Launching today, the SX-250 series III from Nuneaton based e-mobility company Eskuta, combines the design features of a motorcycle with all the cost saving benefits of an e-bike.
The innovatively designed SX-250 provides an alternative to the more traditionally styled electric bikes currently on offer. Enhanced features include, rear view mirrors, indicators, motorcycle grade adjustable suspension, a motorcycle grade braking system, handlebar controls, LED lighting, alarm, immobiliser, keyless-go and alloy wheels with tubeless tyres.
Yet with no licence, insurance or tax required to ride one it fills the gap of those wanting a more substantial feeling e-bike for everyday short journeys that is both environmentally friendly, cost effective and thanks to the pedal assist feature requires minimal effort to cycle.
Designed to get its rider to their destination in both comfort and style the Eskuta e-bike combines a brushless, high-efficiency rear hub motor and a lightweight removable lithium-ion battery that provides approx. 40-50 miles (60-80k) on a single six-hour charge. There’s also plenty of storage on board with a lockable front glove box and optional storage pod.
The motorcycle styling of the SX-250 has been carefully constructed to give the rider a better sense of safety and visibility on the UK’s busy roads. Likewise, the front running LED light and indicators not only ensure the rider is easily seen but also saves on battery life. Safety is further enhanced by a powerful front and rear disc brake system, combined with alloy wheels, a tubular steel frame and folding pedals.
Paralympic gold medal winning cyclist, Aileen McGlynn OBE is amongst one of the SX-250s many fans, she said, “I love using my Eskuta SX-250 series III. I think it’s great for people like me who can’t drive but still want to get around easily and not always have to rely on public transport.
“It enables me to be more independent as I can nip to the shops on it and to get to the gym and training sessions. I like how it has mirrors and indicators which I feel are an excellent safety feature.”
Managing Director of Eskuta Ian O’Connor said, “Our SX-250 appeals to a wide range of individuals, from young people over the age of 14 who are not yet able to drive but want the freedom of an electric bike, to older customers who want a comfortable mode of transport for short distances.
“This popularity is testament to the fact that electric mobility is becoming more and more mainstream, and it is a trend that is only set to grow going forward as we look to make the switch to electric vehicles and reduce carbon.”
