The Volcon Brat just got an apocalyptic makeover.
Droog Moto has teamed up with the electronic mobility company for a restyled version of the popular electric two-wheeler. The resulting bike sports a sinister new design and chunky off-road tires that give the impression it can take on anything.

Droog has been crafting bespoke motorcycles that look like they come from sci-fi movies since 2016. The shop’s latest project isn’t a motorcycle, though—even if it does look like one. The Brat is actually a high-performance e-bike that is versatile enough for city streets or mountain trails.

Droog’s has taken Volcon’s Exo-Arch chassis and outfitted it with a new 3-D-printed, all-black body kit. The e-bike still looks like a café racer; just one from the future. New features include an aggressive LED lighting package, a bigger front fork and a sharp-edged faux fuel tank. The modifications aren’t just for show, according to Bike Exif. The new Brat has also been equipped with MT7E disc brakes, a DNM suspension with a rear shock and a monster set of 20-inch Allscape all-terrain tires.
It may look more like a motorcycle than ever before, but Droog’s Brat is still a Class 2 e-bike, meaning it can be ridden without a special license. It’s powered by a 750-watt pedal-assist electric motor that will let riders to hit speeds of up to 28 mph. Range is expected to be around 70 miles thanks to a 48-volt battery pack, but it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if that figure is lower when riders really push it. Once the battery has been all used up, it can be fully recharged in six to seven hours through a standard household outlet.
Droog is currently taking orders for its take on the Brat through its website. The stylish two-wheeler is available for $5,800, which is significantly less than the company’s motorcycles, but more than twice the average e-bike’s $2,800 price tag.
