If you’re an electric moped fan, there’s never been a better time to be alive. Not only have we seen 2020 turn into the year of the electric moped, but today we’re adding one more interesting model to the list. Monday Motorbikes has just unveiled their new Presidio electric moped.

Monday Motorbikes has been in the electric moped scene longer than just about any other company.

Since 2015, they’ve been building electric mopeds that combine retro styling with 21st-century technology.

Now their latest creation, the Monday Motorbikes Presidio, is ready to roll out.

The electric moped is named after Presidio Park in San Francisco, where the company ran their first demos and received their first-ever customer feedback.

As cofounder Josh Rasmussen explained:

Presidio Park is commonly referred to as ‘The Presidio’ and is where we met most of our early adopters testing our bikes on the gnarly hills of the area. Similar to Anza, we wanted to pay respect to our early fans that we met. We were still in the garage at the time just doing demo rides in the park. We have come a long way since then but we would not have been able to get to the level we are today without meeting those first customers at The Presidio.

The Presidio’s specs are similar to those of the Anza electric moped, which was also revealed by Monday Motorbikes early last month.

The Presidio is available in either a 500W or a 750W format. The lower power model can reach speeds of up to 20 mph (32 km/h), making it a Class 2 e-bike. The higher power model can hit speeds of up to 28 mph (45 km/h), which are Class 3 e-bike speeds.

Both models include pedal assist as well as throttle operation, with a maximum range of up to 40 miles (64 km).
