Italian automotive manufacturer Moto Parilla stands out from the competition with its out-of-the-box two-wheelers. Their Carbon and Ultra Carbon really intrigued my interest with the Cyberpunk looks. Now they’re back with another two-wheeler in the same league.
There’s carbon fiber being used for the single-sided swingarm and aerospace aluminum for the mechanical parts is a clear sign of the two-wheelers premium make. Environmental-friendly aspect comes in the form of fully recyclable hemp covers for covering the wires which is another plus. Unsurprisingly the eMTB weighs just 46 lb despite having a carbon-Kevlar crankcase with an integrated cooling system.
Tricolore is powered by a 250-W Polini E-P3+ MX mid-mount motor topping at 600 watts, generating 90 Nm of torque to take the e-bike at a top speed of 15.5 mph. For more driving options on the trails, the ride is loaded with a 12-speed SRAM gearset and an 880-Wh removable battery pack that adds 62 miles to the range. According to Moto Parilla, the bike has a very good balance courtesy of the high-grade suspension, and of course high maneuverability thanks to the lightweight carbon fiber frame.
The rider gets all the vital information on the brightness adaptive 2.5-inch color LCD display. Visibility is also sorted out with the frame-integrated front and rear lighting. Pricing and availability of Tricolore have not yet been revealed but expect a steep price tag. What’s known is, it will come in four variants – one of them having Bafang M620 motor producing 118 lb. ft of torque.
