The OX ONE brings a retro classic style with new technologies, a café racer with new age technology. The motorcycle comes with one of two optional motor sizes, 3KW or 5KW, the equivalent of a 50cc and 125cc. With a max speed of 50km/h and 120 km/h respective to motor size, and a claimed range of 60 miles (100km). Pre-sales orders are already open on OX’s Website.
The removeable battery pack (two batteries total, removable) will charge in just 2 hours up to 80% of the battery from a standard socket.
The removeable modules can be easily accessed from the side of the bike, where the casing opens to reveal each of these two modules. Overall the battery pack size is 2.16kWh, or a dual 72V 30Ah pack.

Their “Smartbox” technology is a series of sensors that collects and analyzes data from your riding, the state of the vehicle and its environment at all times. This offers a fall alert system, auto-emergency call, GPS, and full connectivity to the motorcycle.
