The new Audi eMTB electric mountain bike, powered by Fantic, brings premium electric mobility to two wheels.

The German auto marque has created the Audi eMTB, a new mountain bike that combined cutting-edge design with plenty of e-power.

No stranger to off-road pursuits, Audi’s new eMTB features an exciting livery inspired by the innovative design of the brand’s electrified Dakar Rally-winning RS Q e-tron racecar.

Like the brand’s fully electric, road-going e-tron model lineup, the Audi eMTB has versatility at its core. Working with Italian motorcycle and e-bike manufacturer Fantic – and based on that company’s XEF 1.9 Factory enduro e-bike – the geometry of the new eMTB’s lightweight aluminium frame is designed to allow a relaxed riding position so riders can better react to obstacles and terrain.

Thanks to its full-suspension design, e-bike-specific Mavic tubeless-ready wheels, and Vittoria e-bike-rated off-road tires, the new Audi ride – which features an exciting livery inspired by Audi’s Dakar Rally winning RS Q e-tron racecar  – is perfectly at home on a variety of terrain, from the road to challenging off-road tracks.

The mountain bike provides riders with four levels of electrical assistance at speeds of up to 32 km/ph – Eco, Tour, Sport and Boost – with estimated battery range of between 19 and 144 km depending on terrain, rider weight and amount of assist used.

The 720-Wh, 36-volt lithium-ion battery pack is located wholly within the aluminium frame, supplying power to the quiet and efficient Brose S-MAG 250-watt motor, which delivers up to 90 Nm of torque. A small digital display located on the handlebars provides an overview of key data at a glance, including assist level, battery charge status, and speed.
