GasGas rolled out three electric mountain bike models, all of which have carbon fiber frames and a “mullet” wheel configuration (29” in the front, 27.5” in the rear). This is the second series of e-bikes from GasGas, who is widely known for their ICE motocross bikes.

Schindelhauer announced two new e-bike models, dubbed the Heinrich and the Hannah. The models differ only in geometry while using identical hardware, with a Bosch Performance CX powertrain complemented by an Enviolo TR hub for stepless and automatic shifting.

Most hydrogen car concepts use a fuel cell to generate power, but hydrogen can also be used with a modified combustion engine. Combine that with the world’s only production motorcycle supercharger and you get the Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX: a hydrogen-powered superbike that is now a working prototype after being teased as a concept render at EICMA 2022.

Vanmoof isn’t letting bankruptcy get it down, announcing plans to launch an electric scooter in the first half of 2024. Previously the Dutch manufacturer has only made e-bikes, but the new owner Lavoie has experience with scooter tech from their successful Series 1 model.

Starting in 2024, Zero Motorcycles will offer an impressive warranty covering all components for five years and unlimited mileage. The warranty is even transferable to new owners, but sadly will only be offered in Europe.

This adorable “Solar Buggy” is coming to the US! This micro-car from Dutch startup Squad Mobility is equipped with rooftop solar panels to extend range by as much as 19 miles (31 km) on sunny days, and is planned to launch in 2025.

The Flee 2.0 is a new utility moped unveiled by Indian manufacturer inGO Electric with a starting price of INR 62,000 ($745 USD). It can be modified to seat two passengers, or to carry a combined 75 kg (165 lbs) on the rack and footboard.

Decathlon-owned brand Van Rysel announced the E-EDR AF Apex, a performance-oriented electric road bike. It weighs only 31 lbs (14 kg) and has a starting price of just €2.800 ($3,080 USD), impressively low considering the quality components from SRAM and Mahle.

If gravel grinding is more your style, check out the El Camino from UK-based Sonder Bikes. Based on their popular Camino acoustic bicycle, the El variant is powered by a Kynamic hub motor and offers a variety of riding configurations.
