Harley-Davidson reconciles us thanks to its new electric mountain bike worthy of the name | TechBuzz

After a somewhat disappointing BASH/MTN on paper, Serial 1 is back with a new electric mountain bike with a technical sheet worthy of the name. But at a still high price.

At the end of May, the Serial 1 brand – owned by Harley-Davidson – unveiled the BASH/MTN, its first electric mountain bike launched in a limited edition. Problem: this model clearly lacked the character to belong to this category of cycle, because it lacked suspension systems that lived up to expectations.

Only a suspended seatpost was indeed present, which seemed very meager to provide the athletic benefits sought for the mountains or rough terrain. But good news: the Serial 1 SWITCH/MTN recently presented in the United States clearly comes to raise the level, as we learn Electrek.

The paraphernalia of a real VTTAE

This new VTTAE indeed goes much further in terms of technical specifications and offers what one can at least expect from an electrified all-terrain bike: suspension fork (Zeron35Boost from Suntour), Michelin E-Wild studded tires or even telescopic seat post. In short, a beautiful paraphernalia to face nature.

Available in four sizes (S, M, L, XL), the Serial 1 SWITCH/MTN is also equipped with four-piston TRP Slate hydraulic disc brakes and a 12-speed SRAM drivetrain. For a total weight of 24 kilos (size L) all the same, which clearly does not place it in the featherweight category.

Do not panic, however: its Brose S Mag central motor with 90 Nm of torque should do the trick to move the beast. We were able to test the capabilities of this system on the MOSH/CTY, for a convincing result in terms of acceleration and pick-up.

A small USB-C charging port

The Serial 1 SWITCH/MTN uses the same battery pack as its friends, namely a 529 Wh accumulator giving it a range of 56 to 168 kilometers depending on the assistance mode used and the intensity of your driving. As a small bonus, a USB-C charging port with a power of 10 W invites itself on the handlebars to recharge a device.

This electric VTTAE is currently not available on the European Serial 1 store, and seems to be confined to the American market for the moment at a price of 4499 dollars.
