Munro Motor Reveals The Munro 2.0

Pricing in the US will apparently be quite a bit higher, it should be noted — “above $1,700” going by comments made at the unveiling. The company apparently plans to start shipping units to the US by the end of April.

For those wondering about the look, the ~75 lb Munro 2.0 is apparently styled “after the iconic Indian motorbikes, and its name is in honor of Burt Munro, who set a land speed record on an Indian motorcycle.”

Tech Crunch provides some further information on the Munro 2.0:

“The company has gone out of its way to create a bike that will stand the test of time, too. All the paint is covered in UV-protected clear coats to make sure it will keep its sparkly shine. The battery packs are replaceable and come with the clever addition of a USB port so you can charge a mobile device as you zip around town.

“The company is using a powerful Bosch motor in the rear wheel to propel you forward at speeds up to 28 miles per hour. Munro claims that a pair of batteries gives riders a range of up to 30 miles — or up to 60 miles if you have two battery packs.”

It’s also worth noting that the electric scooter features 4 caliper brakes (2 to a wheel).
