Tern NBD e-bike unveiled with ultra-low 39 cm step-through frame and up to 118 km range
Tern has launched the NBD, a new ultra-low step e-bike. The step measures just 39 cm (~15.4-in); the company claims the pedelec is easy to ride and steer thanks to its low centre of gravity. Riders sit upright, with wide tires and a suspension seat post making your journey more comfortable. A Bosch e-assist motor powers the bike, providing up to 65 Nm of torque with assistance up to 20 mph in the US and 25 kph in the EU.
On the NBD S5i, the Bosch PowerPack 500 delivers up to 118 km (~74 miles) range. The NBD P8i has a Bosch PowerPack 400 battery with a range of up to 108 km (~67 miles). The bike has a FlatFold feature, which allows you to transform the pedelec into a low flat shape, making it easier to store on public transport or in a car. Plus, you can roll or park the vehicle vertically for convenient storage at home or in the office.
The Gaia Rack at the back of the e-bike suits many accessories such as child seats and panniers, capable of carrying up to 27 kg (~60 lbs). The bike weighs around 23.4 - 23.7 kg (~51.6 - 52.2 lbs). A display on the handlebars shows the battery charge and your speed and the cockpit is easy to adjust, suiting riders from 147 to 190 cm (4 ft 10-in to 6 ft 3-in) tall. The Tern NBD e-bikes are expected to be available from early 2023, starting from €3,999 (~US$4,169).
