Erik Buell’s Futuristic Electric Motorcycle ‘Fuell’ Unveiled

Erik Buell is a world famous motorcycle designer, often considered a pioneer of modern race motorcycle technology, who started off his career as an engineer for Harley-Davidson. From there, he started his own company - Buell Motorcycles - which was eventually, in a full-cycle moment, purchased by his former employer. Harley-Davidson was happy to leave him in charge, which ultimately resulted in a great new innovation being launched just the other week.

Prototypes Fuell Flow-1 and Fuell Fluid-1

With a lot of fanfare, Buell introduced his newest electric motorcycle brand, titled ‘Fuell’. And it is not just the design that is extremely flashy and futuristic, the brand also stands out through its introduction of truly tech-infused electric bicycles. For this, Buell has partnered up with Formula-1 boss Frédéric Vasseur and VanguardSpark Motorcycles founder Francois-Xavier Terny. 

The first two prototypes of this new electric motorcycle brand were already announced: the Fuell Flow-1 and the Fuell Fluid-1. While the Flow-1 is an actual electric motorcycle, the Fluid-1 is better classified as an e-bike, with its maximum speed of 32 or 45 km/h. Both vehicles would classify as those intended for urban mobility, so mainly meant for use within cities, due to their limited range.

The Flow-1 e-motorcycle will be released in 11kW (125cc) and 35 kW (motorcycle license) versions, both of which boast 50 liters of internal storage and an interesting series of innovations (such as a proprietary wheel-motor and a connected dashboard). The Fluid-1 e-bike, on the other hand, is equipped with two removable batteries adding up to 1,000Wh, allowing for a range of up to 200 kilometers. It will also be released in two versions, the Pedelec - with a maximum of 32 km/h - and the S-Pedelec - with a maximum of 45 km/h.

When asked for the vision of the Fuell brand, the founders are quick to point at the problem of the saturated cities - including massive issues with pollution, traffic jams and noise. Especially now that there are more and more cities implementing regulations that limits the use of internal combustion engines, e-alternatives are swimming in a blue ocean.

Urban mobility facilitated using e-bikes

Fuell is looking to offer a complete and unique selection of all kinds of two wheelers (fully electric, obviously) that are uniquely suited to cater to the market of urban “macro-mobility”. This includes all kind of inner-city journals which require a personal vehicle to cover distances that are greater than 3 miles. 

With this, the goal is to ultimately render cars useless for city-traffic, providing a sustainable and green alternative to the polluting four wheelers that are bound to clog up our highways and parking garages. At the same time, it could reduce the strain on public transport - currently overcrowded during rush hours with impatient commuters.

Riding electronically for more fun, freedom and emotion

With Fuell, the goal is to revive urban travel and inject it with a much needed dose of freedom and emotion. Riders will, as the company advertises, enjoy a truly unique e-riding experience that is different, innovative, upgradeable and attractive; perfectly in line with the needs of tomorrow’s society.

The Flow-1 is set to be released in a few years, at a price of just under $11,000 - and the Fluid next year, at about $3,250. So pricing is pretty competitive, with various add-ons available as upgrades. Definitely something to watch out for in the upcoming years.
