Eskuta SX-250 is a motorcycle inspired full suspension e-bike

UK-based micromobility company Eskuta says its SX-250 e-bike combines motorcycle design with e-bike pricing to give two-wheeled commuters the best of both worlds.

Originally intended for delivery people and couriers, the SX-250 is an electric bike designed for intensive urban use.

A look at the bike will confirm that too.

It’s not a sleek messenger bike or a fat-tire adventure bike. Instead, it is an urban assault vehicle meant to tackle urban roads and city obstacles.

On the motorcycle side, the Eskuta SX-250 sports exterior mirrors, turn signals, “motorcycle-grade adjustable suspension and braking”, a locking front glove box, bright LED lighting with high beam switch and crossover, anti-theft alarm with engine immobilizer, keyless ignition, alloy rims and tubeless tires. There’s even a motorcycle-style rear cargo box.

On the e-bike side, the SX-250 is still a street-legal e-bike, thanks to its functional pedals. As an e-bike, it is exempt from the requirements imposed on motorcycles such as registration, registration and insurance. It’s also priced at an e-bike, starting at £1,795 including tax (around US$2,190).

Available in eight different colors, the SX-250 can also be customized for delivery services.

The SX-250 is already attracting riders from many walks of life, as Eskuta Managing Director Ian O’Connor explained in a statement provided to Electrek:

Our SX-250 appeals to a wide range of people, from young people over the age of 14 who don’t yet know how to ride but want the freedom of an e-bike, to older customers who want a comfortable mode of transport on many short distances.

This popularity is a testament to the fact that electric mobility is becoming more and more mainstream, and it’s a trend that will only grow in the future as we seek to transition to electric vehicles and reduce carbon emissions.

A 48V electrical system provides spirited acceleration for the 119lb (54kg) bike, and the battery is lockable and removable for charging on or off the bike.

The bike gets an impressive range of 40-50 miles (64-80 km), although that’s probably helped by the top speed limited to just 15.5 mph (25 km/h). Most European countries share fairly strict e-bike laws limiting the top speed and power of e-bikes, unlike the United States where e-bikes can reach speeds of up to 45 km/h.

The Eskuta SX-250 design is also rarely seen in the United States, where e-bikes often adopt a more traditional bike design, go full ‘Murica with big, massive tires, or in a more recent trend, adopt a retro motorcycle style. or a design inspired by mopeds.

With so many companies developing and/or importing such a variety of e-bike designs, these days there really is something for everyone.
