Versatile Step-Through E-Bikes

The Norco Scene VLT 2022 is a Commute-Focused Hybrid Bike

— June 3, 2022 — Autos
The Norco Scene VLT 2022 is a comfortable step-through e-bike for city commuters. The bike has an easy-to-use design that accommodates riders of all heights and builds. It is also available in small, medium, and large sizes to best meet rider specifications.

The Scene VLT 2022 from Norco has a powerful Shimano E8010 504 Wh battery that combines with its Shimano STEPS E6100 250W 60Nm to make peddling far less taxing on the rider. This means morning commuters can begin their day with light exercise that does not result in them being sweaty and uncomfortable when they get to work.

Norco stressed that its low placement of the battery and motor on the frame allow the weight distribution of the bike to resemble that of a regular manual bike. This means this bike will control and maneuver in a familiar way to traditional cyclists.
