Ryvid, a US-based company specializing in innovative EV mobility, has announced the launch of the Anthem, a fresh take on two-wheeled urban transport. The company says that this electric motorcycle combines advanced aerospace technology with the simplicity of EV architecture, allowing anyone to experience riding in its most elemental form.
Ryvid Anthem has an ultra-lightweight monocoque-inspired chassis, Ergo-Easy ride height-adjustable seat, integrated rear drive unit and removable battery pack for easy charging. Its corrosion-free, lightweight frame is cloaked beneath minimal, sleek bodywork bringing its total weight to just 240 pounds or 108 kg (175 pounds or 80 kg without the battery) with a carrying capacity of 400 pounds or 181 kg.
It is capable of speeds up to 75+ mph (120 kmph) with a range of up to 75+ miles or 120+ km (50 miles or 80 km in Sport Mode) on a single charge and is ideally suited for commuting and urban transport. The Anthem also has a modular head tube unit, adjustable front and rear suspension and an Ergo-Easy ride height-adjustable seat which allows the seat to electrically morph from 30” up to 34” – enabling a wide range of users.
The EV’s easily removable and rollable 4.3 kWh lithium-ion battery can be charged in three hours on a 220V outlet or in six hours on a 110V outlet. The Anthem’s fully enclosed motor and belt drive is housed in the swingarm, a single-piece die-cast construction with integrated cooling fins for maximum efficiency. Enclosing the motor and belt drive also provides improved durability and low maintenance. Motor output is rated at 53 ft-lb or 71 Nm of torque, which is transferred to the road via a 4.7:1 ratio, delivering up to 250 ft-lb or 338 Nm at the final drive. Dynamic energy is also recaptured using regenerative braking technology.
Ryvid’s Anthem Launch Edition is priced at $7,800 (AED 28,650) and will have a limited lifetime warranty on the frame, two-year warranty on the power pack and one-year standard motorcycle warranty. The first 1,000 units, which can be pre-ordered beginning Sunday, August 14, 2022, at 10 a.m. PST. Deliveries are slated to begin Summer of 2023.
