Michael Blast 350/500W T4B – Greaser Cafe Style Electric Bike
Combining superb retro stylings with all the modern conveniences you want on an e-bike, the Michael Blast 350/500W T4B – Greaser Cafe Style Electric Bike offers riders the perfect mix of old and new. Back in the 1970’s, everyone who was anyone was getting around town on a “Cafe” motorcycle. This new design was all about improved speed and enhanced maneuverability, so it’s no wonder this design is so compatible with an electric bike.
One of the objections some people have to electric bikes is the obvious appearance of the battery pack. To overcome this obstacle, the designers of the Michael Blast T4B Greaser Cafe Style e-bike have created a slick battery case that is aerodynamic and unobtrusive. Positioned in the middle section of the frame, this battery case assists with maintaining perfect balance. Within the battery case is a 36 volt, 13 amp hour lithium-ion battery that has been manufactured by Samsung. This long-lasting battery can be fully recharged in just 5 hours, with enough power to travel up to 37 miles (depending on riding conditions and e-bike load).
The battery powers a 350 watt or optional 500 watt geared brushless rear-hub motor from industry stalwart Bafang. The motor can be engaged via the twist throttle, or by selecting one of the Pedal Assist levels (PAS), which uses a cadence sensor with 12 magnets in order to accurately measure the rhythm of the rider and then match the engine output to suit.
Showing that good looks don’t have to be compromised in the name of comfort or safety, the Michael Blast T4B Greaser Cafe Style electric bike includes a great range of added extras. This includes a dual spring saddle that has added cushioning for a more comfortable ride, plus an oversized headlamp (in the style of a motorcycle light) which ensures you will have great visibility when riding at night. Add to this the 3” wide Duro Beach Bum tires and Tektro Auriga hydraulic disc brakes (front and rear), and you’ve got a superb mix of safety, style, and comfort.
