Updating its electric motorcycle (e-bike) offerings the RGNT Motorcycle No. 1 Classic and the Scrambler No.1, RGNT Motorcycles from Sweden has released the Sports Extended or ‘SE’.

The ‘SE’ model appellation is available for either e-bike in RGNT’s catalogue and features regenerative braking and a new ‘Boost’ mode which gives an additional 20% power increase at the expense of battery life.

Also new is the instrument cluster, a TFT-LCD screen the size of a tablet with more more personalisation options. The new thumb operated joystick makes it easier to safely interact with the cluster while riding, allowing for displays changes to be made on-the-fly.

Other updates include a new RGNT app, giving riders real-time updates on charging status and remaining charging time, battery range, and bike location. Planned future upgrades for the No. 1 e-bike range includes tactile feedback, always on IoT-connectivity for security, bike status and automatic software and design upgrades.

Charging time is claimed to be three hours from 20% to 60% while taking the battery from 0% to 100% requires six hours, with range claimed to be 148 km and a governed top speed of 120 kmh.
