Rimac Introduces the Second-Generation Greyp G12S Bike That Does 80 KM/H

Greyp G12S is the second generation of pedelecs developed by electric sports car specialist Rimac, and you guessed right, it is way cooler than the initial bike. With 26" rims and a sleek carbon fiber body, the Greyp G12S comes with a revised, stronger frame and capable of providing more riding pleasure.

In fact, it looks like the fun factor was the key element that motivated Rimac to update the first Greyp pedelec. Already sharing a lot of high-tech features with the Rimac cars, the Greyp G12S has only got better, sporting better handling and maneuverability.

As the Greyp G12S is also intended to be ridden off-road, the suspension travel was lengthened from 180 to 200mm, got a hydraulic regenerative braking system as well as stronger brakes and rear suspension.

The center of gravity went lower thanks to repositioning the batteries, and the energy storage was increased to 1.5 kWh. The range remained the same, up to 120 km (74.5 miles) but the bike can now deliver much more power.How does doing 80 km/h on a pedelec sound?
The standard urban mode means the Greyp G12S delivers 250W that can push the bike up to 25 km/h (15.5 mph), the legal limit. Still, using the "Chuck Norris" mode, you can enjoy 12kW of sheer power and reach 80 km/h (just under 50 mph).

Still planing to use the Greyp G12S this way may require to register it as a motorcycle, wear helmets, get licensed in one way or another and
all. Insurance and registration will, of course, be needed.

All in all, the Greyp G12S also lost a bit of weight, as it tips the scales at 48.5 kg (107 lbs) and received nifty feats such as a fingerprint reader that also allows you to select modes, a color 4.3" color touchscreen offering a ton of data.

Having it recharged from 0 to 100% takes 80 minutes on a standard outlet, and this spells amazing usability. The Sony battery cells have a minimum life of 1000 cycles while still maintaining a 75% capacity, too.

Now, all these nifty things come with a price that makes the Greyp G12S an expensive toy. You can order the Rimac Greyp G12S for €8,380 excluding VAT, and that's about $9,355, which is not at all cheap.
