Tacita launches new electric motorcycle cruiser with a massive battery pack

Tacita-T-Cruise-1

Tacita, an Italian electric motorcycle maker who has so far been making electric motocross bikes, has now entered the North American market and launched a new electric motorcycle cruiser with ‘up to 168 miles of range’.

 It’s impressive because that’s actually a higher energy capacity than in some electric cars for sale today but in a motorcycle cruiser.
The vehicle is called T-Cruise and it is offered with a 30kW electric motor, capable of 52 lb-ft of torque, according to VisorDown.

The drivetrain remains the same, but they offer 3 different battery pack options for the range:

  • a 7.5 kWh battery pack for a range of up to 50 miles – $10,999 (£8,283)
  • a 15 kWh battery pack for a range of up to 93 miles – $14,999 (£11,296)
  • a 27.5 kWh battery pack for a range of up to 168 miles – $27,999 (£21,086)

The bike itself looks like a traditional American cruiser but with clearly visible electric components instead of the usual twin-engine.
