VanMoof announces new technologies on its high-speed e-bike

21 Jan 2022

Since the initial announcement in October 2021, some of the more technical aspects of the VanMoof V have been kept well under wraps, as the bike remained in the engineering phase. Three months on since the first renders were made public, the Dutch company has announced some new tech that we can expect to see aboard the 'hyper bike'. 

The big reveal is that of an integrated handlebar phone mount - a big difference from the S3/X3 models, which instead of a screen relied on a Matrix Display on the top tube. VanMoof says that this new development "will allow riders' phones to be incorporated as a screen and dashboard and provide an intuitive visual reference for updates from the V's onboard computer."

VanMoof has been working on the software and hardware for this bike for over a year now, with the full product details still being fine-tuned as we eagerly await to find out just what makes this bike ‘hyper’.

One thing, of course, is the suggested 31mph/50kph maximum assisted speed of the V. This does make registering it somewhat difficult in the UK as if it is sold with this maximum assist speed, it exceeds the S-Pedelec class limits of 27mph/45kph. That being said, the product specification does suggest some flexibility on this. With speeds "up to 31 mi/h depending on local regulations and how the bike is registered."

VanMoof also announced that the reservations for the V have now reached 10,000. Reservations opened in October via a 'rider-first, invite-only' approach. The general public will be able to reserve their V from 8th October for just £20, with the total price to be paid estimated to be £2998.
