The Pocket Rocket designed and engineered by Sol Motors stands out due to the innovative synergy of lightweight design, performance and connectivity. The clear and contemporary design incorporates technology with a functional lifestyle for a modern riding experience.
The Pocket Rocket is the perfect urban commuter vehicle. Reaching speeds of up to 50 mph the Pocket Rocket is not an e-bike, it’s too fast, nor a moped, it has no pedals. Technically it’s a noped, defining a new category of electric two-wheelers.
Standing at just 2.5ft tall, the Pocket Rocket features a lightweight aluminum tube frame that houses the bike’s computer compatible with both iOS and Android apps, headlamp, rear brake light, turn signals and its removable 220V battery. There are two versions available – one with a 6 horsepower hub motor capable of 50 km/h (31 mph), and the other version boasting a mighty 8.5 hp (6.3 kW) capable of 80 km/h (50 mph).
The bike has three dedicated mode functions including wheelie mode for those literally inclined, eco and sport. While the bike isn’t available just yet pricing is expected to start around $6,000 for the entry-level model with the option to add a $1,500 premium for an upgraded “S” version.
