The R's aircraft-grade 6065/7071 aluminum alloy frame is lighter and more rigid than steel. Aluminum is also rust and corrosion resistant for worry-free riding in all conditions.
The R sports an inverted coil-spring fork and a rear Coilover mono-shock.
The R is powered by a state-of-the-art 960 watt-hour battery, the largest in the segment. This provides an estimated 40+ miles* of range at 20mph under throttle only operation and an estimated 75+ miles* of range using ECO pedal assist mode.
