It’s safe to say that adventure-based shenanigans have been the new craze of the year; from Honda’s new XL750 Transalp debut, to Ducati’s off-roading Desert X, all the way to the small but mighty zero-emission CAKE Bukk, brands are committing to a general lack of road with a focus that would be slightly concerning if it weren’t so dang exciting. 

Electric bikes might have a smaller part of the industry at large, but they want in on the fun, too – which is why two companies with roots in the Northwest have come together in the name of eco-friendly braaps.

“Kicking off in 2023, UBCO and the [Portland] Trail Blazers will launch a series of initiatives that highlight both companies’ local Pacific Northwest roots, helping to expand off-road riding and everyday adventure to more people in a sustainable and innovative way,” states the relevant press release. 

Expectthe following as a bare minimum from this collab:

  • Chilling with mascot Blaze the Trail Cat
  • Community and cause-driven events
  • Sweepstakes for Blazers-themed UBCO 2X2 Adventure Bikes 
  • Special promotions for Trail Blazers ticket holders (and the general public)

Bottom line, if you’re a fan of nature and stuff, there’s really no better way to ‘stay active and explore in a sustainable manner’ than by swinging a leg over an emission-free scoot. 

Have you ever taken an electric machine off-road?  What did you think?
Let us know in the comments below, and as always – stay safe on the twisties.
