In the long term, electric mobility will be imposed on short journeys, especially in very sensitive areas at the level of environmental protection, such as the open nature and urban areas with a high population density. Vehicles like the ‘E-SPEED’ and FREERIDE E can contribute to that motorcycle are highly regarded in society. Not only for their environmental, but also because they are easy to use, fast and fun”.
