The Fluid from Fuell aims to change the way we move around the city on two wheels. Designed by motorcyclist engineer Erik Buell — of Buell Motorcycle Company and Harley Davidson fame — this e-bike comes with a mid-drive Bofeili 500W pedal-assisted motor, giving it 100Nm of torque that offers cyclists a fast ride. The Fluid is also designed for the urban rider and is made from a custom aluminum alloy frame that keeps things sleek. Fuell also added a Gates Carbon belt drive system and a Shimano Alfine 8-speed geared hub for low maintenance. Two batteries provide the power allowing you to travel a staggering 125 miles on one charge — and reach an 80% charge in only two and a half hours. This is the ideal e-bike for city commuting. The Fluid is set to ship in September, but if you go ahead and back the bike now on Indiegogo you can snag 21 percent off.
