If you’re looking for an American made electric motorbike than Huck Cycles has several models to choose from, all the way from 750 watt to 3000 watt! All bikes ship capped at 1 horsepower to stay within state regulations but the owner can change this setting to unleash the full power and speed. Of course, the owner will also need to register the bike as a moped, if not a motorcycle in most places, to legally ride it.
- American built
- Custom options available
- Wide range of speed/power options
- Turn signals, horn, other street legal components
- Different price ranges to choose from
- Several week wait for production
- Much more of a motorcycle experience than an ebike pedalling experience but if that’s what you’re looking for this isn’t a con
- Higher speed options will require license, registration, insurance and motorcycle license
The bikes come with turn signals, a horn, and other features necessary for a street legal ride. If you don’t want the expense or hassle of registration you can choose the 750 watt or 1000 watt depending upon your local laws and ride the bike as a Class 2 or Class 3 ebike.
With all of that said, Huck Cycles are custom built from mostly American components in the USA. The frame, battery, leather seat and as many other components as possible are manufactured in the United States. The motor is Asian but motors coming from China and other Asian markets are tried and true. Bikes are the main form of transportation in many Asian and even European markets so they know how to build bikes well but not with good old fashion American ingenuity that you might be looking for.
You’ll have to wait a couple months or longer for your bike to be built but it will be custom. You can choose available paint colors or for an addition fee request a custom color. Seats are genuine stitched leather also available in different colors.
You can also choose a bike with a battery of up to 72 volts which is powerful! Speeds of up to 55 mph are possible with a 3000 watt motor paired with a 72 volt battery. That’s powerful!
