Erik Buell’s Fuell Reopens Reservations For Its $12,000 Fllow E-Commuter Electric Bike


The Fuell Fllow was first introduced back in 2019. The e-commuter, as it’s branded, bridges the gap between high-end scooters and electric motorcycles. A number of obstacles slowed its progress but now it’s back on schedule. Reservations cost $200 and the company wants to secure 3,000 of them before moving on to the next step.

Designed by the legendary Erik Buell, the Fuell Fllow is what the company calls an urban e-commuter. If it makes it to production, it’ll come with a 10 kWh battery pack and up to 47 hp (35 kW). Fuell also aims for the bike to go 150 or more miles (240+ Km) on a single charge. On top of that, a full charge from near 0 percent should only take half an hour. As Fuell points out, for the average 15-mile daily commuter, that would mean only having to charge the bike once a week.

The Fllow leverages a single wheel-motor at the rear to propel the bike. It’ll go from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds. Additionally, it’ll be capable of highway speeds (55-85 mph) and can reach a sustained max speed of 85 mph (140 km/h). The Fuell Fllow starts at $11,995 and needs more pre-orders before it can move forward.

After its initial pre-order launch in April 2019, a few hundred customers signed up but then things took a turn for the worse. “Then came the pandemic… it disrupted first the supply chain and some of our suppliers. Some specific developments were postponed, with the risk of being canceled. Investors got cold feet. Investment promises were put on hold, and some investors rescinded their commitments,” the company said of the delay.

Now, it’s seeking at least 3,000 reservations to move onto its next stage, crowdfunding, and self-financing Fllow. Everyone who places a pre-order will get a $2,000 discount on MSRP along with a Fuell x Veldt carbon helmet and their place early in line to receive the final production model. At launch, it’ll come in four different colors, red, blue, silver, and black. Those who select the base version, which has just 15 hp (11 kW), will have the ability to upgrade their bike at a later date should they want to.
