In the automobile industry it is a common practice, but recently we’ve seen more and more bike brands adopt this method: more or less camouflaged prototypes are tested in public. Just like this E-MTB, that grabbed our reader Thomas’ attention when it was leaning next to a kiosk. While the rider was waiting in the lane to pay his snacks, Thomas managed to snap a few shots that he kindly shared with us.
If our assumptions are right, we can expect this bike to hit the market in the upcoming season. Judging from the size of the downtube, we’re assuming the total capacity to be somewhere around 700 Wh. Should you ever stumble across something exciting yourself, feel free to send us a mail. What brand do you think this bike belongs to? Leave a comment with your bet below!
Thanks Thomas for the photos!
