At Interbike 2014 we stumbled upon Grace Bikes, a high-end German electric bike manufacturer that is finally getting a North American distributor for 2015/2016. They were showing off their newest creation, a collaboration with German frame designer Nicolai called the RN-1. The RN-1 was designed to bridge the gap between electric bikes and motorcycles, and the frame design definitely shows a heavy motorcycle influence.

The RN-1 boasts the following features:
- Full suspension with 240mm rear travel and 203mm front travel
- Motor with 15,000W peak power
- Samsung 13S17P Battery, 48V Nominal Voltage
