But since 1975 the Bultaco Pursang brand has all but vanished.
In 2018 in Barcelona, a veteran 40-year-old Spanish automotive designer, Jim Palau-Ribes and partner Roger Gubert, have revived the Spain’s leading brand releasing the new 100% electric Pursang E-Track.
The Pursang E-Track represents a new concept of electric motorcycles made for motorcycle lovers.
It’s an elegant motorcycle that’s ideal for moving around inside and outside the city.
The E-Track is powered by an 11kW Bosch engine that uses three 48V batteries and has a total power capacity of 7.2kW (2.4kW per battery).
This gives the E-Track 140 kilometers of range and a maximum speed of 120 km/h. The batteries take 6 hours to recharge.
The E-Track has 3 driving modes: Go, Cruise and Boost.
They have 140, 115 and 80 kilometers of range respectively. It also has a Crawl mode, which allows the motorcycle to advance slowly alongside you while you’re walking.
Crawl Reverse mode also helps facilitate different maneuvers.
The market for electric motorcycles is in full bloom. Sales of these models still make up a minority of the market, but more and more brands have electric models in their catalogs.
Other brands, like Pursang Motorcycles, focus on electric models specifically.
Sustainable mobility is increasingly prioritized in a society that’s aware of the importance of being environmentally conscious.
However, sustainability doesn’t have to be boring.
The Pursang E-Track is a viable example of that fact: it’s an electric motorcycle that adds a touch of fun to daily commutes while helping reduce pollution, stemming from both emissions and noise, in cities.
