The Swedish RGNT No.1 officially open orders to US, expected to reach US in 2022, with first deliveries in 2023.
The RGNT No.1 is a fusion between old and new brought to you by the Swedish based RGNT motorcycles. The company is now expending its delivery and online orders to include US on top of Europe.
We first reported on the company’s pre-order open for Europe, just 4 months back, and now RGNT are ready to take on the next target.
The RGNT No.1 is all about bringing together retro-classical motorcycle looks with new technology. The company recently opened doors for pre-orders in Europe, in addition to some minor enhancements to their model. The GEN. 1.5 of the No.1 is carrying improved suspensions, brakes, CBS system, 2 riding modes and a better motor efficiency that also increased the range.
The RGNT No.1 carries a hub motor peaking at 15 kW (20hp) and running nominal power of 9kW (12hp). Standing at a curb weight of 363lbs (165kg), this relatively light motorcycle reaches a top speed of 75mph (120km/h).
These numbers actually represents an increase of 13% in efficiency from the GEN 1.0 of the RGNT, also increasing the range by another 10 miles from the previous version. With current motor power the No.1 is at A1 license level for Europe.
Now allowing a higher range of about 70 miles (110 km) or as much as 100 miles (160km) in city riding, the RGNT’s battery pack holds 7.7kWh (72V 80Ah). Charging the battery is estimated to take 3 hours from 20-80%, or around 8 hours from 0 – 100%.
Each part and accessory on the RGNT has been carefully chosen, so the No.1 now uses a 35mm Ceriani replica for the front suspension. Rear suspension 340 mm eye to eye, with adjustable spring pre-load. Both front and rear wheels have chrome steel rims, Avon Roadrider tires, and Excel takasago wheels.
for the brake selected by RGNT are J.Juan CBS Brake Systems for both wheels, 300 mm front and 220 mm floating Disc, 5 mm thick. And both brakes will be operated by hand levers.
The No. 1 Classic will set you back $12,495 with an initial $150 deposit, and the No. 1 Scrambler model is priced higher $13,495. The Scrambler features better on/off-road tires and wide aluminum rims, fork gaiters, and improved suspension.
The first RGNT to be shipped to US are expected to begin December of 2022, and from that point until actual deliveries begin, it is estimated to take another year, aiming for early 2023.
