Remember when we found RGNT’s No.1 Classic? Well, the zero-emission brand has taken classy aesthetics a few steps further with the help of Crooked Motorcycles.
The end result? An immaculate bike build that bespeaks clean minimalism with modest lines, smooth angles, and a balanced selection of silver and black for the ultimate eye candy.
Did we mention she’s 100% electric? That’s new territory for Crooked.
RGNT No. 1 Scrambler SE
Crooked’s XS400-series(“Simplicity is the key to brilliance”)
“At Crooked, we had been debating a project in the EV-realm for a while, but we wanted to collaborate with a high-quality partner, who shared our vision on custom style and design,” imparts Dominikus Braun, the CEO, and Founder of Crooked Motorcycles.
“As soon as we ran into RGNT at the Intermot last October, we fell for the classic look and simple design of their bikes. After some talks with their team, we quickly decided we would partner with them for our first EV project.”
Weight loss was apparently a big challenge with this build – bigger still when considering the weight of an electric machine. RGNT’s recent article shows how the collaboration involved clever solutions, such as stowing sables in the bike’s frame triangle and storing the bike’s converter unit under the saddle.
Here’s a list of additional details that went into building the E-Type:
- Redesigned subframe (via CAD)
- Cables hidden in frame triangle (via CAD)
- Converter unit moved inside the seat
- Rear raised 3cm
- Upgrade to YSS springs with3D-printed fork covers
- Added Continental TKC 80 tires on blacked-out rims
- Bates-style LED headlight
- Motogadget blaze turn signals
- Supernova LED brake/rear light
With the E-Type Scrambler now ready for serial production and on its way to the Bike Shed London Show this weekend, we anticipate more than a few of these for Europe’s roads.
