Rad Power Hints at a New Electric Bike Coming Next Week

Rad Power Bikes RadRunner ebike

Rad Power has long been one of the most popular electric bike manufacturers, but something new is coming next week. The company says it’s getting to release its most requested model from fans and fellow riders.

Between the revised RadRover 6 Plus last summer to the popular RadRunner or RadExpand 5, the company has no shortage of options. However, Rad Power Bikes just started teasing that an all-new model will arrive next week. The teaser image doesn’t reveal much at first glance, but we have a few good ideas of what it could be.

The RadRover fat tire mountain bike started it all for the company and is still the best-selling bike it offers. That said, the “most requested” electric bike is likely one that’s more affordable than what the company currently offers.

The folks at Electrek went a step further and turned up the brightness on the teaser image Rad Power posted to Twitter and believe it’ll likely be some sort of affordable folding electric bike. And yes, Rad already has a folding bike, but it retails for $1,600.

From the image provided, we can slightly see a utility-style bike with a step-thru frame, a new location for the massive battery, no suspension, and tires that aren’t as fat as previous offerings. Plus, it looks like this upcoming model could be a folding bike.

If we had to guess, Rad Power Bikes is getting ready to release an affordable new folding ebike for the masses. If it wants to take on the budget-friendly competition and Lectric and others, it’ll need to retail for under $1,000. I was hoping for a full-suspension electric bike, but that isn’t looking very likely.

Either way, we’ll know more come Tuesday, December 6th, when Rad Power Bikes unveils its latest set of electrified wheels. Stay tuned for more details.
