Onyx Motorbikes is bringing back the popular moped style of the 70s and 80s, but updating it with electric motors. Originally, mopeds were more bicycles with engines on them. They could be powered by either pedaling or with the attached motors. They weren\u2019t very strictly monitored because they couldn\u2019t travel much faster than what a bicycle can achieve. If you were to strictly adhere to that definition, you might wonder how what Onyx is offering could be considered a moped. The bike can be powered either by pedal or motor. It\u2019s the speed that will have you scratching your head about the title of \u201cmoped.\u201d The RCR Caf\u00e9 Blaster has 72 volts of instant torque that can achieve a top speed of 60 miles per hour with a range of up to 75 miles. You\u2019re not going to hit that speed pedaling! Even the CTY version pushes the boundaries of speed with 48 volts of torque for a top speed of over 30 miles per hour and a range of 40 miles.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe motor Onyx is using closely mimics the feel of a kitted two-stroke motor through the entire RPM range. You can get up to speed in just four seconds. Additional batteries are available to extend your range. And if the RCR or CTY isn\u2019t your style, you can change things up with the DRT upgrade kit and go for more of that scrambler look.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
