Many news for RMS e-bikes.
The company from Seregno expands its 2018 offer, becoming distributor of the German brand Black Bird. Another innovation is the BMW Motorrad X2City scooter, born from the collaboration between BMW and Kettler.
For 2018 the technological and design innovations proposed by the manufacturers mainly concern the intube battery. Below is a sample of the most interesting models that you will see in the e-bike catalogs distributed by RMS in 2018.
The one we prefer is the E Scorpion SL 27.5+ of Kettler: power of the Shimano engine and the lightness of carbon (€ 4.999)
The E Scorpion SL with a 27.5+ wheel will be one of the top models in the Kettler range for 2018 with a 500 Wh intube battery and a carbon frame, which with only 17 kg of weight becomes the lightest in the industry. It mounts the performing Shimano Steps E8000 engine with a maximum torque of 70 Nm and the innovative Shimano XT Di2 11-speed electronic transmission system.
Completing the equipment of this e-MTB, which promises high performance sports, the Rock Shox Revelation fork with 120 mm excursion, the Magura brakes (mt5 front / mt4 rear) and the Schwalbe Rocket ron performance covers.
The color that combines opaque gray with neon yellow is also very interesting and sought after; painting like all Kettler models is handmade.
BMW Motorrad X2City Scooter (€ 2.499)
RMS for 2018 launches a new challenge, proposing exclusively the BMW Motorrad X2City scooter, born from the collaboration between BMW and Kettler.
It is a medium that is still not widespread in Italy, but that promises great satisfaction, because it allows you to move anywhere in an agile way, thanks to its folding handlebars that makes it easily transportable even in the car.
Equipped with 6061 aluminum frame, 400W intube battery and 16 "wheels, the scooter provides motorized assistance from a speed of 6 km / h and up to 25 km / h provided by law. It is available in 3 elegant glossy colors (gray, red, blue) and in the more "aggressive" matt black.
