Horwin is a relatively new electric motorcycle manufacturer that produces electric vehicles designed primarily for urban mobility. The company has been working hard to bring innovation to the increasingly popular, but very experimental, electric motorcycle market. In fact, in 2020, the previous version of the EK3 electric scooter received the Red Dot design award. Now, in 2022, the company continues to innovate by further refining its model range to offer some of the best options in the urban mobility industry.
For starters, the Horwin EK3 is making a comeback. It retains its rounded features, giving the scooter a sense of simplicity and vintage inspiration. Meanwhile, LED lights that criss-cross the shield and tail horizontally give the bike a futuristic edge. The engine produces 6.2 kW of power and can propel the vehicle up to 60 kilometers per hour. According to Horwin, the 40 Ah battery is detachable and recharges in four hours. For added convenience, the underseat compartment is quite spacious and can hold both a spare battery and a helmet. There are four color options: white, red, matte black and grey. The 2022 EK3 has a price of 4,940 euros (5,286 USD).
If the EK3 is too much for you and you want something much simpler and cheaper, the EK1 might be your best alternative. It’s the entry level model, a smaller scooter than the EK3, and it’s L1e certified. Due to its cheaper price, more user-friendly performance, and colorful hues of orange, blue, white, and black, it is aimed at a younger audience. The seating position is upright and comfortable, and the tiny proportions make it a true city dweller. The EK1’s electric motor is rated at 2.8 kW, giving it a top speed of 28 miles per hour. The battery, like the EK3, is a removable 40 Ah unit with the same charging times as the EK3. The price is set at 3,940 euros, or about $4,215.
The SK3 completes the Horwin range of scooters. The angular lines, the high shield and the twin seat of the scooter give it a sporty look. In terms of performance, it can reach 56 miles per hour and has a range of 50 miles. The 36Ah battery recharges in 4h30. The container accommodates a second battery, increasing the advertised range to 100 miles. It costs 4,640 euros (about 4,964 USD) and is available in matte black, gold and blue.
Horwin also makes a cafe racer style variant known as the CR6. This beautiful electric motorcycle is L3e legal, easy to use and weighs only 134 pounds. Its electric motor produces 182 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to reach a top speed of 60 miles per hour. The battery has a capacity of 55Ah and recharges in 3 hours, however it is not detachable. Despite its usual motorcycle appearance, the CR6 sports a glove pocket in its fake tank which also houses a USB port. It costs 6,640 euros, which is equivalent to approximately 7,104 USD.
