From Brompton - the definitive folding bicycle company, comes a new bike - the Brompton Electric - the most compact folding E-bike on the market. So now if you want an electric bike that folds, you no longer need to find and install a Brompton Electric compatible kit - you can get an actual Brompton Electric.
The current lead time at Brompton is approximately 9 weeks - they are popular, demand is great so there is a backlog.
We try and keep a good stock and luckily we have more Brompton Electric bikes on order and coming soon!
Short answer: No
The front wheel has an electric motor developed with Williams - the Formula 1 company. It is powered by a battery in the front luggage, which simply unclips from the bike for storage / charging
Like the classic Brompton it folds to a compact size so you can store under your desk when at work or without taking up too much space on your private jet!
Designed so that you will arrive at your destination quickly and easily (and not sweaty!)
There are not so many combinations of colour / gearing / handlebars / mudguards with the Brompton Electric as with the standard Brompton range - so the choice will be easier as there is a choice of 8 bikes in total (though of course you can choose an additional bag / seat post height / saddle width or toolkit - we can take care of that at pickup time)
The Brompton Electric folding bike was originally available in two colours:
then a third colour was introduced in 2020, with a premium lacquer finish
a new colour was introduced in 2021, and the white discontinued - so for 2021 the colour range is:
All three colours had black detailing (cranks / rims / hubs / handlebars / seat post etc) and an electric blue logo / decal
in 2022 the Bolt Blue premium finish has been discontinued - time will tell if it returns, and replaced by flame lacquer and black lacquer - Bothe very popular finishes on the manual Brompton - so for 2022 we have
The battery for the Brompton electric is stored in a removable bag. There are two bags available
Both bags have access to a USB port on the battery so you can charge your mobile phone while riding
The Brompton Electric folding bike has less gear choices than the standard Brompton
With the powerful Williams developed 250W motor you will probably only need 2 gears (saving a bit of weight) unless you live in a very hilly area
The Brompton Electric has two available chargers
Spare chargers are available in our Brompton Electric spare parts and accessories section - so why not keep one at home and one at work (just in case you get caught short)
