e.battery systems GmbH in Dornbirn (Vorarlberg/Austria) will manufacture at least 10,000 batteries for the electric motorcycles of Swedish manufacturer RGNT in the coming years. The order is worth more than 30 million euros. e.battery systems developed the batteries to series maturity last year and has now also received the order for production. The e-motorcycles can be tested at the RGNT Motorcycles European Tour on August 4 in Dornbirn, the first time they can be tested in Vorarlberg.
The Swedish company RGNT Motorcycles is one of the pioneers in manufacturing electric motorcycles. It was founded in December 2018 by Jonathan Aström to build classically designed motorcycles with an environmentally friendly propulsion. RGNT unveiled its first prototype in May 2019 – at a time when major brands had hardly any electric motorcycles in their range. The retro-designed motorcycle was highly acclaimed by the trade press.
Exactly one year later, the manufacturer turned to e.battery systems, based in Dornbirn, to further develop the prototype battery for series production. The goal: cost-effective production, minimal weight with high performance, capacity, and the highest safety standards. To reduce production costs, mainly standard components are used in addition to some custom-developed parts.
