Electric dream

Quieter than a lawnmower but a lot more fun to ride…

Bultaco’s trials bikes scooped a ton of awards back in the Seventies. Now the legendary brand has been reborn – and gone electric. The Bultaco Brinco R mixes pedal power with a 2000-watt power unit, meaning you can propel it to a top speed of 40mph. It’s far too powerful to be road-legal, but you’ll shoot up muddy hills faster than a hungry cat can lick its own bottom.

Pedal fatigue

The motor and pedals are independent of one another, meaning you can ride it like a twist-and-go moped or a traditional bicycle. But why bother peddling? It’s such a tiresome endeavour.

Eco warrior

The Brinco R comes with three different riding modes; Sport, Tour and Eco. Eco reduces power meaning you can travel up to 60 miles! Sport is undoubtedly more fun though, even if your maximum distance is halved.
