Eunorau plans to use a dual-motor fat-tire ebike to fuel off-road adventures

Apr, 2021 - by CMI


Eunorau, an electric mobility company, has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the development of the Defender S, a new fat-tire full-suspension ebike with dual-battery and dual-motor options.

Defender S is available in two different versions of Indiegogo. The standard Defender S comes with a single 750-W Bafang rear-hub motor and is probably the more powerful of the two. If consumers wants to increase their speed up to 35 mph (56 km/h), the S Pro has hub motors front and rear with 1,500-W of all-wheel-drive grunt. Any design comes with a single 48-V / 14-Ah Li-ion battery built into the frame, as well as the option to add a second long-lasting ride battery for a longer ride. Both batteries are removable and can be charged internally. Powerful 17-Ah modules are also available, with a dual configurations that promise up to 80 miles (128 miles) per charge. 

The Defender S features a 6061 aluminum alloy frame with two sizes, a sport RST Guide fork with a 75 mm of travel paired and a spring shock of DNM A0-42RC with 165 mm of travel, front and rear lighting, and a nine-speed Shimano Alivio derailleur. It has 26-inch Kenda Sport tires, and the company's own hydraulic disc brakes with 180 mm rotors on the front and rear which provides power to the stop. A new 1.7-inch color monitor has been installed to monitoring battery life, keep track of rpm, and accessing nine levels of assist, among other things.

The base S configuration with a single rear hub motor starts at US$ 1,799 on Indiegogo, while the dual-motor Pro monster starts at US $ 1,999. A second battery, a quick charger, and a fender/rear ack combo are among the optional extras, although there are no specifics about how much these would cost. If everything goes according to schedule, shipping will begin in November.
