Bulls just announced a class 3 electric road bike, the Desert Falcon EVO. It’s powered by a Bosch Gen4 Performance Line Speed motor, providing assistance up to 28 mph, and a 500Wh Powertube Battery integrated into the down tube of the 6061 aluminum frame.
It features a carbon fork, DT Swiss rims and Schwalbe E-One EVO tires, a Shimano Di2 1×12 drivetrain and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes.
Road bikes with class 3 motors make far more sense to us than class 1 motors do. If you’re going to have a heavier bike, and some motor drag above 20 mph in a class 1, you’re going to work harder to keep up with the pack.
The Desert Falcon EVO is available in 50, 55 and 60 cm frame sizes and will be available at Bulls dealers this week. Price is $6299.
