MUJI x Honda MS01 e-bike revealed with 25 kph top speed and keyless unlock feature
MUJI and Honda have collaborated on a new electric bike, the MS01. The e-bike’s design is based on the MUJI H-type bicycle, looking more like a scooter than a traditional e-bike. Penned by MUJI’s Kenya Hara, the design ensures an ergonomic upright sitting position, with a high-quality saddle similar to one you would find on a motorcycle.
The bike has a 400 W motor that can assist you at speeds up to 25 kph (~16 mph). A removable 48 V 20 Ah ternary lithium battery provides a 65 km (~40 miles) range; the company suggests that, with average daily use, you will only need to charge their bike once or twice weekly. Smart features of the electric bicycle include keyless unlocking and an LCD screen to show information such as the battery charge level and your speed.
The MS01 has 17-in tubeless tires, which allow you to travel over various terrains. The e-bike has aluminum alloy handlebars and an integrated kickstand. The bike’s design ensures an ergonomic upright sitting position, with a high-quality saddle similar to one you would find on a motorcycle. LED front and rear lights help you see and be seen in low lighting.
You can buy the MUJI x Honda MS01 e-bike in China for 4,980 yuan (~US$744) in black or white. Only 5,000 units will be produced at this stage, and it is unclear whether or when the vehicle could be launched in other markets.
