VanMoof V – The unique hyperbike comes next

The “V” in the product name stands for delay because it’s significant

Start of production for VanMoof v Postponed for more than a year from the current point of view. This was reported by the company from Amsterdam Currently only available on the internal blog. The model is currently being tested on the streets of Taipei, but the start of series production is a long way off. The start of production was originally planned for this fall, but according to the company, it has to be postponed until the end of 2023. This is due to the ongoing problems with the global supply chain. VanMoof co-founder and CEO Dice Carlier has this to say about the current situation:

The world is very different today than it was 12 months ago when we announced the VanMoof V. We know the production delay of the VanMoof V will be disappointing to many, but in our current economic climate it is important to be realistic. Our teams are working hard to meet our adjusted schedules and can’t wait to see the V on our roads soon.Dice Carlier

It is optimized for long journeys and comes with special functions including the ability to reach speeds of up to 50 kmph.

However, features shared with the hyperbike such as automatic gearshift, brand new drive train or USB-C charging stations can also be found in the recently launched A5 & S5 series of e-bikes as Dice Carlier.
