The power generated by the E2's motor is transferred through the electrical cables housed in the rear wheel rim. According to the manufacturer, the E2's design and construction helps reduce unspurung mass, being comparable to a conventional motorcycle. And rotational mass is also considerably smaller, which helps in better acceleration and efficiency. Speaking of which, claimed range of the E2 is between 200-300 km on a full charge, and the battery can be fully charged in just two hours.
