VoltArt400
By Merkava 

Premium Vintage Classic e-bike

Merkava’s VoltArt400

electric bike

  • is in a league of its own with a design that evokes classic custom motorcycles.

When it comes to functionality,

this bike is hard to classify. Despite its styling, it is not a motorcycle. Despite the "electric bicycle" moniker, it is not your standard e-bike. There are pedals, so you could get around even after you’ve depleted the battery. However, at 35kg (77 pounds), many people would rather not. Next to the pedals, the VoltArt400 features motorcycle-style pegs for resting your feet while you ride. The result is a product that has far more in common with traditional small motorbikes than with its electric-bike brethren.

propelled by a powerful 

400 watts electric brushless motor in the rear wheel and powered by a 48V-11.6Ah rechargeable and replaceable lithium ion battery pack that is neatly tucked in behind panels around the motor. A pair of caliper disc brakes on each wheel provide safe and fast stopping. Shock absorbers in the front and back promise a smooth ride without the spine-beating jostling you may have experienced on older gas-powered mopeds or lower end e-bikes.

engineering gem

and a piece of art.

  • As its name implies this e-bike is truly an engineering gem and a piece of art. Get ready to embark on this exclusive machine brought to you by Merkava propelling you into the future of responsible eco friendly commuting.

At a top speed of 32 km/h or 20 mph,

it's better suited for casual trips into town than mad dashes across the Bonneville Salt Flats. That doesn't stop it from being a stylish, innovative and practical option for getting around. The speed is closer to conventional mopeds than to other electric bikes, making it practical for errands, deliveries and local trips.

VoltArt400’s sleek ovoid battery Packs, 

come equipped with a USB socket that allows you to charge up your devices on the go. The paint job is covered in a UV-protectant clear coat to ensure that it keeps its good looks for years to come.

Personal commute

Leisure rides on bike paths and trails

What our customers think

Chantal Labreche

I purchased the VoltArt400 for my husbands 40th b-day. Hes always wanted a custom motorcycle but never got around to getting his license. So this was the perfect alternative. He absolutely loves it, leaving me wanting one for myself, but in red. 

Marc Gillespie

Kamloops, BC

Have been riding mine for the last three months to get to work and back. Must say I am truly impressed by the attention to details and workmanship. Definitely something to hold to for the long run. 

John Maury

I got my VoltArt e-bike last week. I actually have no intention of riding it! I own a men's clothing store and placed the vintage bike in my showcase. People's reaction to it is astonishing. Men are drawn into my store like kids to a candy shop. It's hilarious, Love it! 

Michael Caunaught

Panama City Beach, FL

This is by all means not the fastest e-bike out there but that's okay. It rides real smooth and with its sleek look was really not intended to race but rather cruise around and that it does beautifully. A little pricier than other vintage e-bikes out there but well worth it as it's design and built are so unique. 

Sandra LeCount

Moncton, NB

Fell in love with this vintage bicycle the minute I stumbled upon it. Knew I had to own it. As my first e-bike I have nothing to compare it to, but so far i can't complain. It takes me where I need to go with ease. Range is good and speed as well for city commute.  Also looks awesome inside my loft.  

Heather Campbell

Capitola, CA

I have been getting around my little beach town with my noisy scooter for years now. I'm sure my neighbors are so relieved. I'm zipping through town with zero noise or emissions. Love it, and it looks so sexy on top of it. What a beauty.
