From hypercars to hyperbikes: McLaren launches debut electric mountain bike range

Renowned for game-changing supercars and hypercars such as the McLaren P1TM, luxury supercar maker McLaren Automotive is ushering in the era of the electric hyperbikes with its debut range of electric bikes unveiled today.

Taking inspiration from the company’s award-winning supercars, the new limited-edition four- bike range extends McLaren’s extreme performance-focused design and technology into the electric two-wheeled world for the first time.

Designed by the same teams responsible for supercars like the electrified lightweight McLaren Artura hybrid supercar, the first-ever McLaren e-bikes embrace signature McLaren attributes such as carbon-fibre construction and next-generation electrification to deliver an authentically McLaren high-performance experience.

The e-bikes’ powerful motor enhances their high power-to-weight ratio, a pivotal attribute mirrored in the development of every McLaren supercar.

Designed with torque figures that surpass the standard of other premium e-bikes, the McLaren e-bikes have been engineered for class-leading performance.

Further reinforcing the link to supercars, the McLaren design team devised an innovative digital display whose graphics mimic those of the cars’ driver displays.

Ensuring maximum rider engagement and user-friendliness, telemetry information including speed, battery life and range is shown on a full colour integrated LCD panel on the handlebars.

Four distinct models – Extreme 600, Extreme 250, Sport 600, and Sport 250 – each offer the ultimate two-wheel ride, whether on city streets, off-road tracks, or mountain trails.

The flagship McLaren 600 versions vie for the title of the world’s most powerful street-legal electric mountain bike with its Race mode delivering up to 852W of peak power and a top speed of 20mph/32kph.

Two electric mountain bike models are available in limited numbers: a 29” hardtail version, and a full-suspension version with 29” front wheel, 27.5” rear wheel, 145mm of rear travel, and 160mm of fork travel.

In total, four models complete the range, the Extreme 600W and Extreme 250W feature SRAM wireless XX Eagle Transmission 12-speed drivetrain and the Sport 600W and Sport 250W feature mechanical SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain.

McLaren Sport
The ideal, all-purpose mountain bike that is just as at home off the beaten track as on aggressive single track, with integrated componentry and minimalist frame design for pure McLaren style.

As with McLaren cars, there is a choice of power modes, selectable via the digital display on the integrated cockpit:
Off – No motor assist
Eco – Energy conservation for long rider
Trail – A set-it-and-forget-it balance of power and efficiency
Sport – Extra power output for when the trail demands more
Race – Max power and max torque

McLaren Extreme
The Extreme is a full-suspension electric mountain bike designed for maximum off-road performance, control, and comfort. All five power modes are as per the McLaren Sport.

The Sport and Extreme models are both shod with Pirelli tyres.

Availability of McLaren e-bikes is limited. Customers can secure one by visiting

*600W versions will only be available to purchase in the United States
