Black Tea is a German (Munich) e-mobility startup company, founded by Viktor Sommer. Viktor is convinced that electric motorbikes are the answer to make individual mobility more exciting. He is fascinated by the roughness of motorbikes & the thrill of the acceleration. However, he noticed that there is no appealing electric motorbike alternative today. The market is flooded with electric sit-down scooters in Vespa Style which are not an option for thrill seekers like him.

Viktor: “I decided to close this gap with Black Tea, the motorbike for a hedonistic lifestyle. Within six months I was able to finish the prototype & I am now preparing the product launch on Indiegogo (for legal street use in Europe & the US). Until 20th of July it is possible to subscribe to our newsletter of Black Tea to get a bike with 50% discount during Black Tea’s crowdfunding campaign.”

The Black Tea philosophy stands for pursuit of fun with responsibility towards the environment. They believe in a sustainable & exciting future, but they are also drawn to nostalgic times. That is why they built the Black Tea Classic. It is the combination of clean technology & vintage design.

Black Tea Classic

Viktor has been inspired by 70’s Scrambler & Deus Ex Machine and would love to ride in Los Angeles. The first Black Tea Classic model is perfect for both commuting & outdoor trips. The clean and quiet characteristics of the bike offer new possibilities without disturbing the environment. With 5 kW peak performance, 80 km/h top speed & 70 km range, you can do some cruising in the city. And you can double the range with a second battery if needed. The removable battery can be charged at home of course.

Bring back the rebellious lifestyle with the vintage design

And if you want to modify some things … due to the interchangeable motorbike parts, you can build your bike in your own personal way.
