What is inside Johammer J1 electric bike?
Beneath the upper skin, lies the below shown muscular chassis:
The sole source of energy of this bike i.e. the battery pack sits on the torsion stiff middle portion made of aluminum. In addition to the Lithium-ion air cooled battery-pack, this middle frame also holds the spring dampers. A brushless AC motor rated 11kW which is mounted in the rear wheel hub sets this bike in motion. However, the bike has an electrically limited top speed of 120km/hr. The specially designed twofold frame at the front end offers extra stability during braking.
You would be surprised to know that there are no conventional gauges like speedometer and battery indicator in Johammer J1. Instead, the rearview mirror having a 2.4-inch display integrates these controls into itself.
Similar to the conventional gauges, this bike doesn’t feature any foot pedal control. The two sets of foot pegs allow the rider to select the riding position of his/her choice.
