Central Powersports Distribution, the official U.S. importer and distributor of Electric Motion motorcycles, is proud to release the details of the 2021 Electric Motion Model lineup. Model year 2021 witnesses the introduction of two new models and solid improvements across the entire model range.
ePure Range: ePure LITE, ePure, SPORT, ePure RACE
The Electric Motion ePure models received a number of changes for 2021. All three models received a new frame with revised geometry and new triple clamps for improved balance, stability and handling. In the power department, all three bikes have new battery management software and revised power maps. And new battery charging sockets for the entire range allow for even easier charging. Across the board, all three models get a fresh look with new black frame and swingarm color and new graphics.
For 2021, the ePure SPORT and RACE models have been fitted with new TECH RACING Aluminum forks for enhanced performance and durability. Tech Aluminum forks are the top-standard in the trial world and will be a welcome addition for EM riders this year.
The 2021 ePure RACE still remains the only electric motorcycle on the market to feature a real diaphragm clutch. This is a fully-functioning hydraulic clutch, similar to what is found on a gas-powered trials bike. It allows the rider to fully engage, disengage and modulate the power, giving them perfect control. It is truly game-changing!
Escape Range: Escape LITE, Escape, Escape “R”
Two new models are joining the Electric Motion family for 2021. The Escape LITE and Escape “R” models are new for 2021, and they join the already capable Escape model to offer a more complete lineup.
The new Escape LITE is the perfect bike for joining the Electric Motion revolution! With an MSRP of $8100, it is an affordable entry into the segment while providing outstanding performance. The Escape LITE features a new seat and top cover for improved comfort on longer expeditions and has a range of approximately 27 miles.
The standard Escape model has the same features as the Escape LITE, but with a larger battery that boosts range to approximately 38 miles. The Escape features EM’s Progressive Regenerative Brake system. Controlled by the lever on the left side of the handlebar, the PRB system works like a clutch/rear brake hybrid. When pulled, the PRB lever kills the power and progressively slows down the rear wheel, like a brake would. The farther the lever is pulled in, the more the rear wheel slows down. Everytime the lever is pulled, the PRB system regenerates power, which charges the battery and increases range! In addition, the Escape will soon be street legal here in the US, which will make this already versatile bike even more useful. Imagine this bike in the back of your RV or adventure van!
The new Escape “R” model is the ultimate go-anywhere trailbike! The Escape is practically silent and leaves no trace, making it the perfect mount for exploring. Escape “R” has the TECH RACING Aluminum fork and the diaphragm clutch from the ePure RACE model, paired with the large battery from the standard Escape model. More range, more power, more control, more performance – that’s the Escape “R.”
All three Escape models share the same frame, triple clamp, software and cosmetic improvements as their ePure counterparts.
2021 Electric Motion models will be available at participating CPD Dealers Nationwide this fall.
