Znug Unveils Its Anime-Inspired Lowrider E-Bike

Poring over the pictures taken at a recent photo shoot at the ancient Chokoji Temple in Sanmu, a couple of hours east of Tokyo, we can tell that the bike features a Mitsubishi Megatorque belt drive, Buell brakes and incredibly tricked out front and rear suspension systems. The bike also features fat wheels, extended handle bars and super boss single-sided hub attachments for both the front and back wheels.

The zecOO also features a low-slung fairing which seems to glide over the entirety of the bike’s front end. That fairing gives way to a futuristic set of gauges which stick out from the place where the bike’s gas tank would be, if it had one. The extremely minimal seat underscores the line on the bike’s fenders and carbon fiber composition.

So just what will an emotional electric low-ride motorcycle set you back? Znug Design says that they will produce a very limited number of the bikes with a price tag of $70,000. In comparison, the Zero ZF9 electric street bike has a range of 114 miles, a top speed of 88 miles per hour and sells for $13,995.
