Russian Army Electric Bikes

So, it looks like the Russian army is going to get electric bikes. Also, the police are going to get them. It has batteries which enable it to run for a distance of 320 km. Also, three sorts of batteries can be used: “uphill”, “speedy” and “long distance” depending on what sort of task needs to be solved. Let’s see a police version of the electro bike:

This one is for police. It is promised that both of them can be “stored in a regular car’s trunk”, so they are probably foldable.

Different types of weapons can be mounted onto them, and their speed can reach up to 110 km/h (almost 65 mph) with the motors starting from 3 kilowatts.Russian Army Electric Bikes

In case you are wondering how much they cost – they say its around 300k rubles which was $10,000 just recently but is around $6,000 according to today’s dollars to ruble exchange rate.

  1. Really great use of technology. People often complain that electric vehicles aren’t practical, but for these uses they are perfect, efficient, and economical. There is no need for charging-stations every 100km on every road for police and military.

  2. Hmm, the military version has a Zoom suspension fork. They are the cheapest there is and tend to have problems even on conventional bicycles. I definitely wouldn’t ride 110 km/h on one of those. Maybe the production version will have something little higher-end, though.

  3. So, this bike is all awesome and stuff… but what about its actual name so that I can find more information too? Thanks in advance.
