For less than $7,200, the Patagonia electric motorcycle exudes potential with a reasonable price tag
Coming out of Madrid, the OX Motorcycles Patagonia electric motorcycle is built on the Spanish company’s first model, the Ox One. Equipped with an upgraded adjustable suspension, knobby off-road tires, and an LED headlamp, the Patagonia will suffice all needs for the rider while being environmentally friendly.
The OX Motorcycles Patagonia electric motorcycle has a retro scrambler design with a hefty headlight mask and a large fender beneath it. A tubular side protector is located just behind the fork, and a bash plate is located down low with 19-inch front spoke wheels and the 17-inch rear alloy wheels. The motorcycle weighs 352 pounds and has a seat height of 32.6 inches, making it quite accessible for all riders.
On paper, the 15 horsepower peak, 8 HP continuous (11 kW peak, 6 kW nominal), 37 pound feet (50 Nm) electric hub motor has a max speed of 68 mph (110 km/h). The detachable 72 volt battery pack weighs 48.5 pounds (22 kilograms) and offers a range of 62 miles (100 kilometers). There’s been no confirmation on fast charging, unfortunately, and it will require five hours to charge to full.
The Patagonia is equipped with an LCD instrument cluster, side-mounted 14 liter saddlebags, a USB Type-C charging outlet, and a glove box built inside the tank. It also features adjustable suspension which will benefit rides on loose terrain. To make the electric motorcycle more safe, built in are front and rear disc brakes with synchronized braking technology.
The OX Motorcycles Patagonia electric motorcycle is priced at $7,190 and is set to be delivered this upcoming September in the Green Parrish or Ocher Baret color options. Reservations cost roughly $260 and are currently available on the OX website.
