The Switch eScrambler is an electric motorcycle made by a New Zealand start-up company, Switch. Introduced first in concept form in February 2020, the Switch eScrambler now seems ready to enter production.
This bike was designed by Switch founder and principal engineer, Matthew Waddick with Michel Riis, a former Danish Flat Track champion and former Yamaha Japan Advanced Labs Industrial Designer.
The process begins with developing the motor design via 3D software, sourcing components and creating molds for mass production of the motor.
If other electric motorbikes appear modern and futuristic, this motorbike is unique because it is packaged in a custom scrambler flow motorbike design.
The front view looks like there is a round LED headlamp and turn signal lights and mini fenders, typical of custom motorcycles.
From the side, the design is very minimalist, exposing the aluminum frame and the legs that are carried.
Behind the body resembles a gas tank and the board seat is installed, it contains the controller unit and the motor’s electrical system module.
Talking about technical specifications, the Switch eScrambler uses a separate drive motor, with a power equivalent to 70 hp which is channeled to the rear wheels using a belt.
Then for the battery using the LG 21700 li-ion with a spec of 13 kWh, it can be used to cover a distance of up to 150 km in one full charge.
The battery charging time itself takes about 4 hours, from an empty state to 90 percent.
Feature-wise, there is a digital instrument panel as well as an ABS brake system and disc brakes on both wheels from J.Juan.
Although it looks classic, the suspension sector is quite modern because it uses upside down in front and monoshock at the back.
In the style of a flat track scrambler, the wheel sector looks sloppy with wide spokes wrapped in large dual purpose tires.
In mass production motorcycles later, of course, they will be equipped with devices such as mirrors, number plate holders, and other accessories that support them for sure.
