In 2019, renowned motorcycle enthusiast and founder of Buell Motorcycles, Erik Buell, embarked on an ambitious new venture in the world of electric mobility – FUELL. Promising to revolutionize the two-wheeler market with cutting-edge technology and innovation, Buell’s brainchild quickly gained attention. Now, after years of dedicated work, FUELL is thrilled to present its first electric motorcycle – the FUELL Fllow – and it’s available for pre-order.
The Fllow is a mid-sized electric motorcycle that punches above its weight, offering the capacity and functionality of a larger bike. Its standout feature is an impressive 10-gallon total storage capacity, making it an ideal choice for those who prioritize utility and versatility on their rides. With the capability to accommodate a passenger, the Fllow is not only rider-friendly but also perfect for sharing the thrill of electric travel.
Powering the Fllow is a high-performance battery that ensures a city range of 150 miles on a full charge. FUELL has chosen the CCS connector for charging, a popular choice in North America. The convenience of quick charging is a hallmark of the Fllow experience, with a Level 2 charger allowing a full recharge in approximately 30 minutes. For standard home chargers, the timeframe varies from one and a half to two and a half hours, while using a standard 110/220V home outlet might take up to eight hours for a complete charge. The good news is that even if your preferred charging station uses Tesla‘s NACS connector, commonly adopted by major car brands, FUELL has ensured that adapters are readily available.
Speed enthusiasts will be delighted to learn that the Fllow doesn’t compromise on performance. With a top speed of 85 miles per hour and a jaw-dropping 0-60MPH time of just 3.5 seconds, this electric motorcycle promises an adrenaline-fueled experience like no other.
However, FUELL’s commitment to future-proofing its technology is what truly sets it apart. At the heart of this vision lies the concept of “battery pack modules.” FUELL ingeniously designed its motorcycle to have integrated and interchangeable battery packs, enabling riders to swap out and upgrade components as technology advances. This ingenious feature empowers Fllow owners to keep up with the ever-evolving electric vehicle landscape without replacing the entire motorcycle.
Despite Buell’s illustrious history with Harley-Davidson, FUELL stands as an independent entity, completely distinct from the Buell Motorcycles brand. Buell Motorcycles, founded in 1983, enjoyed a decade of success before Harley-Davidson acquired 49 percent ownership in 1993, eventually taking full control in 2003. Unfortunately, in 2009, Harley-Davidson made the difficult decision to discontinue the Buell product line. However, Buell’s unwavering passion for motorcycles led him to lay the foundation for FUELL, dedicated to pushing the boundaries of electric mobility.
Meanwhile, Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire division has been making strides in the electric motorcycle market, introducing the S2 Del Mar electric bike in early 2023. The S2 Del Mar boasts a faster 0-60MPH time of 3.1 seconds but falls short in terms of range and charging speed when compared to FUELL’s Fllow. While Harley-Davidson has its achievements to be proud of, FUELL remains unwavering in its commitment to prioritizing cargo capacity and modularity in Fllow’s design.
The FUELL Fllow is now available for pre-order, and for $10,495, it presents an attractive option for riders seeking an electric motorcycle that blends power, range, and utility seamlessly. The retail price of $12,995 might seem like a splurge, but for those who value the thrill of electric travel and the flexibility of future upgrades, it’s an investment that promises returns for years to come.
