The eROCKIT One, hailed as the world’s fastest street-legal eBike, is creating waves in the electric vehicle market with its cutting-edge technology and impressive performance. Developed and manufactured in Hennigsdorf, Brandenburg, this electric motorcycle is classified as a 125cc light motorcycle and boasts a unique feature: the Human Hybrid pedal drive. This system significantly multiplies the rider’s muscle power, offering a distinctive and powerful riding experience.

How it works

At the core of the eROCKIT One’s innovation is its Human Hybrid pedal drive system. This intelligent mechanism enhances the rider’s pedaling efforts, enabling speeds that traditional eBikes cannot match. Riders can achieve a top speed of 100 km/h (62 mph), making it suitable for both urban commutes and longer journeys. The bike’s performance is backed by an air-cooled, brushless permanent magnet synchronous motor, capable of delivering a peak power of 16 kW and a continuous power of 5 kW.

The eROCKIT One operates on a 52-volt lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 7.5 kWh, offering a range of over 130 km (approx. 80 miles) on a single charge. Charging the battery is straightforward with an external plug-in charger, and it takes approximately 3 hours to charge from 20% to 80% and 6 hours from 0% to 100%.
