The BASH/MTN e-bike from Harley-Davidson’s Serial 1 has been launched. The gadget has a simple design with one gear, and the only suspension is found in the seat post. Smart connectivity features on the e-bike include turn-by-turn directions and in-app ride reports. The motor will assist you at speeds up to 20 mph (~32 kph).

Harley-Davidson’s Serial 1 has revealed a new mountain e-bike, the BASH/MTN. The vehicle has an unusual design with just one gear and neither front nor rear suspension. The company claims that its simplicity makes the bike easier to maintain.

The comfort features are minimal, with an SR Suntour NCX suspension seat post as the only form of shock absorption. High-volume 27.5-in (cm) Michelin E-wild tires provide grip, with the modest built bringing immediate feedback and precise handling.

The BASH/MTN has a Gates Carbon Drive belt and a Brose S Mag motor that can deliver up to 90 Nm of torque and assist you at speeds up to 20 mph (~32 kph). There are four ride modes: Eco, Tour, Sport and Boost.

A “walk-assist” function makes it easier to transport the bike when walking, particularly when encountering an incline. A compact 529 Wh lithium-ion battery provides up to 95 miles (153 km) of range. You can detach the battery to charge it, with a 75% charge taking 2.6 hours.

The bike has an integrated USB-C plug enabling you to charge your smartphone while riding. You can view information about your ride in the Serial 1 App. Other connectivity features include GPS tracking, Google Maps route planning and turn-by-turn directions.

Only 1,050 units of the Serial 1 BASH/MTN will be available, split half and half between the US and Europe. The e-bike will cost US$3,999, making it a cheaper electric mountain bike.
