The report from RideApart states that the New Zealand-based electric startup company initially premiered the eScrambler in February of 2020, with the next two years of lockdowns providing both Switch and ‘former Danish Flat Track champion and ex-Yamaha Japan Advanced Labs Industrial Designer Michel Riis’ (what a pretty mouthful) ample time to turn the concept into a production model for the masses proper.
“As the electric sector continues to mature, users will be able to upgrade the eScrambler over time,” adds the report.
“Switch has a slew of eScrambler accessories in the pipeline. Some add-ons such as mirrors, mudguards, and plate holders are street-legal necessities, while items like the skid plate, front rack, tank bag, and side cover aim at improving the bike’s form and function.”
As for the eScrambler herself, you’re looking at a 375lb electric bike with a previously mentioned 50 kW (70 horsepower) IPM electric motor and a 13kWh LG 21700 li-ion battery.
Charging speed isn’t exactly revolutionary, but still good, with the bike reaching 90% chagrin capacity in 4 hours.
The faux gas tank provides the perfect hidey hole for all the electric components; below, Switch has dressed the 27-degree rake of the eScrambler with an upside-down fork at the front and monoshock at the rear.
Everything works alongside a belt final drive, with disc brakes by J.Juan (with ABS) and the VERY nice potential for the bike to ‘accommodate future technologies.’
