Get some fresh air and save your legs. Electric bikes are gaining speed in WA and with a bunch of new models now out, there's a bike to suit everyone.
Vallkree Scrambler ($3790)
At the higher end of the cost-scale is the Valkree Scrambler, which mixes fun, technology and a great vintage look.
The quality-built Scrambler provides style and comfort with a range of around 50km in a single ride.
The 26-inch alloy frame houses a waterproof 13 amp battery, electronic display with trip computer, speedometer, self-diagnostic system, battery indicator, distance calculator and USB charging socket.
And it looks great, with retro style including a leather spring seat, bobber wheel fenders and 1920s double-springer Eltoro forks. Many of the vintage parts had to be specially made.
“Having the vintage look appeals to people young and old,” says Crofts. “It’s a funky, cool cruiser with a vintage style that never becomes dated.”
