Trevor Motorcycles's 11 kW street legal DTRe Stella flat tracker e-bike is now available in Europe for €14,495
Trevor Motorcycles recently launched the DTRe Stella in Europe as a street-legal, off-road-capable e-bike, according to RideApart. The Stella features an 11 kW mid-drive electric motor fed by a 2.7 kWh Li-ion battery that nets it a claimed 102 km (62 miles) of range. Hand-made in Belgium, the DTRe Stells isn't cheap, but it has a number of convincing specifications that might appeal to those that have the coin to spend.
Trevor Motorcycles pitches the Stella as a highway-going, dirt-ready flat tracker, even though it tops out at just 95 kph (59 mph), meaning any highway work will drastically affect the range. On the positive side of things, the motorcycle weighs in at a nimble 101 kg (~223 lbs) in its street guise, making it quite viable for off-road riding. While the default charger shipped with the Stella is a 1 kW unit, an after market 3 kW charger can replenish the entire 102-km (~63-mile) range in just 70 minutes.
Trevor Motorcycles only sells the Stella in street-legal form at present, but the dirt-track-only version coming later weighs even less and comes in at €1,500 less than the street version (€12,995 for the dirt track only version, as opposed to €14,495 for the street version). At the time of writing, the DTRe Stella has a waiting time of 20 weeks for delivery.
As a result of removing all the street-legal equipment, the dirt-only Stella weighs in at just 79 kg (~174 lbs). As a sort of electric dual-sport motorcycle, the DTRe Stella features fully-adjustable long-travel front suspension and an Öhlins rear shock, and rides on 19-inch wheels. Beginners beware, though, since the Stella has a rather tall seat height of 91 cm (35.8 inches). A tall seat height is not unusual for an off-road motorcycle, but for reference, the 1100 cc Honda Africa Twin adventure bike comes in at 88 cm (~33.5 inches).
