OPIUM e-bikes can travel up to 340 km on single charge with regenerative braking technology
OPIUM will launch longer-range e-bikes for pre-order this summer, the OPIUM 6.0 and the OPIUM 4.0. The company claims that its bikes can travel up to 340 km (~211 miles) on a single charge; this would be the equivalent of riding from Zurich to Geneva.
The OPIUM e-bikes use a 1,670 Wh battery with an optional 470 Wh extender to achieve this range. Plus, regenerative braking extends your range mid-ride. The vehicle is powered by an 850 W brushless motor which the company claims is quiet and powerful.
The bikes will have a FIT display that shows ride data such as your route and speed, which you can also view in an accompanying app, alongside other statistics. GPS tracking and a keyless immobilizer can be used as an anti-theft device. Both gadgets have an S-Pedelec suspension fork for a more comfortable ride.
The OPIUM 6.0 has a 12-speed Pinion C-Series gearbox, whereas the 4.0 has a 9-speed system. The 6.0 will also have an anti-lock braking system (ABS) and a Lupine SL-X headlight, a 3,000 lm light, which the company claims is the brightest on the market.
OPIUM will showcase the two e-bikes at EUROBIKE 2022 in July, and you will be able to pre-order the products shortly afterwards. The OPIUM 4.0 and the OPIUM 6.0 will be officially launched in spring 2023 in 12 colors. It is currently unclear how much the two models will cost.
