NXT motors claims the bike is twice as strong and 25% lighter than similar class bikes. another difference worth noting is the price with the rage tipped to cost around €24,950. other electric motorcycles come with a costlier tag $117,000, like the arc vector which also features an impressive carbon monocoque.

öhlins suspension provides the bike with high performance handling and ride quality. though also likely contributes to that high price. the NXT rage also features a large 7″ color display that leaves the rest of the handlebars looking clean and open. the bars are mounted low enough to give a sporty ride position while high enough to remain comfortable for longer street riding and commuting.
