The UNNO IKKI e-bike has a full suspension system. (Image source: UNNO)The UNNO IKKI Factory and Race e-bikes have been unveiled. The models are the first of their kind from the brand and are relatively lightweight at an average of 18.4 kg (~40.6 lbs). Features of the enduro e-bikes include a full suspension system, a 360Wh battery and a TQ HPR50 motor.

UNNO has launched the IKKI e-light bike, its first lightweight electric model. The nimble yet stable bicycle is available in two versions: the Factory and the Race. The two bikes use the same frame, which looks incredibly similar to the company’s analog BURN bike, available in three reach-based sizes. The differences come in various parts, with the Factory using more premium elements.

The IKKI is powered by the TQ HPR50 motor, delivering up to 50 Nm torque and a maximum power of 300 W. You can switch between assistance modes on the handlebar-mounted selector. The company claims it is the quietest and lightest engine of its kind; for context, the e-system weighs 3.9 kg (~8.6 lbs), with the S2 bicycle weighing 18.4 kg (~40.6 lbs). Plus, a motor plate protects the engine from damage if you hit hard objects like rocks. The enduro bikes come as standard with a 360Wh battery, and an optional range extender, sold separately, has a 160Wh capacity.

The IKKI eMTBs have a full suspension system, with a Fox 38 Float Factory fork with 170 mm travel and a Fox Float X2 Factory shock with 160mm travel. Also identical are the Formula Cura 4 brakes, the MAXXIS tires and an integrated TQ screen that shows information like your remaining battery level. Differences come in the groupset, with an SRAM GX AXS T-Type 12-speed used for the Race and an SRAM XX AXS T-Type 12-speed in the Factory. Plus, there are different seat posts, with the Race using a OneUp Dropper with 120mm travel, while the Factory uses the RockShox Reverb AXS with 125 mm travel. You can now buy the UNNO IKKI Race and Factory e-bikes from $9,795/£10,195/€10,295 and $12,295/£12,795/€13,095, respectively, directly from the company in the EU or via dealerships worldwide.
