Znug Unveils Its Anime-Inspired Lowrider E-Bike

What do you give the cyberpunk who has everything? How about a low-riding, anime-inspired Japanese electric motorbike/scooter?

Designed by Kota Nezu’s Znug Design and fabricated and manufactured by Autostaff Suehiro, a company well known in the vibrant Japanese custom motorcycle and scooter circles for its tricked out dirt bikes, sidecars and trikes, the bike is called the zecOO (pronounced ZEE-KU) and recently had its unveiling at the Tokyo Motorcycle Show.

The zecOO has a range of between 55 and 85 miles and generates a rather modest 28 horsepower and 47 foot-pounds of torque for a top speed of 75 mph, perhaps due to its rather chubby weight of 540 pounds.

Znug Design describes the bike as an “emotional electric low ride motorcycle,” but other than that rather mysterious description, specs and details about the bike have been rather tough to come by.
