LAUNCH DATE: August 9th at 9 am PST. NOW LIVE.

SANTA CLARA, August 9th, 2016 –

Vintage Electric Bikes introduces new model Scrambler – designed to let you leave the pavement behind.

Santa Clara based Vintage Electric Bikes continues to disrupt the industry with their innovative and cutting edge takes on electric bicycles. The company’s newest model Scrambler remains true to Vintage Electric’s token (and effortlessly cool) vintage style, and is built to be ridden hard 100% of the time.

This is your have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too electric bike – one that works just as well pulling up for a cold brew at your local coffee shop as it does climbing to a breath-taking view on a twisting fire road.

Like its sister model Tracker, the Scrambler is built for best-in-class performance and features heavy-duty “moto” bars, dual sport-valved limited gold suspension forks, oversized brakes, and a race ready number plate headlight. Its metallic root beer paint and gold-flecked graphics are just the icing on the proverbial cake.

“Designed with early dirt bikes of the 1970’s in mind, we wanted to create a bike that as all of the flare of a vintage scrambler with the every day use of an electric bike”.

This bike will bring you back to a time when adventure and wheelies were all that mattered – what are you waiting for?

Limited Edition SCRAMBLER

When the Pavement Runs Out

Built to Stand the Test of Time

This is your have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too electric bike – one that works just as well pulling up for a cold brew at your local coffee shop as it does climbing to a breath-taking view on a twisting fire road. This bike will bring you back to a time when adventure and wheelies were all that mattered – what are you waiting for?

Suspension Fork

Utilizing a classic moto-inspired inverted design, this fork is made to last. Our dual sport valving smoothens dirt roads while allowing for maximum road performance. Going from a smooth city street to a twisting dirt road is as easy as pointing your tires where you want to go.

Moto Bars

These oversized heavy duty handlebars put you in the perfect riding position to attack your commute. Keeping you upright, comfortable and stable on all terrain.

Shimano Alfine Hydraulic Disc Brakes

The most trusted name for hydraulic disc brakes in the cycling community, Shimano provides the Scrambler with trusted technology and unsurpassed braking performance. Featuring an oversized 203mm front disc for optimal braking power at 36 MPH.

The Battery

The heart and soul of the Scrambler, our patent pending aluminum battery box is beautifully designed and locally sand cast in San Jose, CA. This special housing protects crucial electrical components, including the 702 watt hour lithium battery. It also disperses heat, allowing our high performance system to run at lower temperatures, increasing efficiency.

Schwalbe Black Jack

The Scrambler is equipped with Schwalbe Black Jack knobby tires. These tires provide a tactile traction for seamless transitions from pavement to dirt. Woven with KevlarGuard, a bullet-stopping, robust material that protects against flats.

Race Mode

Standard on the Scrambler is Race Mode which utilizes a 3,000 watt rear hub motor that rapidly accelerates the rider to 36 Miles/Hour (58 Km/Hour). With that amazing powerhouse and a feather light frame, the Scrambler packs a punch. Welcome to the ride of your life. Race Mode is intended for off road use only. Simply remove the Race Mode key to switch back into street legal mode and comply with local regulations including USA and EU standards.

Headlight and Taillight

A race inspired aluminum number plate holds a small yet powerful LED light to keep you safe on and off road. The Scrambler also comes equipped with our integrated rear taillight. These lights run off the main battery with integrated wiring. No wires or batteries to worry about.
