You may have heard of eROCKIT before, as the German company specializing in pedal-assist electric bikes has been showcasing its products since 2019. eROCKIT AG, the firm's parent company, has acquired 100 percent of eROCKIT Systems GmbH, and has begun issuing shares in a first public offering. Given the recent development, the company seeks to ramp up production, as well as establish sales structures in key markets.
Commenting on ramping up production and availability in multiple markets, eROCKIT AG Chairman Andreas Zurwehme said in a report published by The PACK: "The climate targets and the increasing worldwide bans on vehicles with internal combustion engines offer an unprecedented opportunity for new players in the market. The legal form of a stock corporation is ideal for accepting further investors on the capital market and meeting the high demand more quickly.”
Richard Gaul, the former head of communications at BMW, is on the eROCKIT AG supervisory board, which adds to the seriousness of eROCKIT's expansion plans. He had this to say about the potential eROCKIT holds in transforming mobility all over the world: “The eROCKIT is probably one of the most important breakthrough innovations in the field of two-wheelers. As an emission-free top product ‘Made in Germany’, it is able to solve global urban mobility problems. The very special is the so called human hybrid technology, which can also be used in other markets.”
Markus Leder, who previously worked at Pininfarina as the head of development, is in charge of production and quality control. Max Kruse, renowned professional German football player, media entrepreneur Aaron Troschke, and the German investment business Mittelstaendische Beteiligungsgesellschaft Berlin-Brandenburg (don't ask me how it's pronounced) are among the company's prominent shareholders. eROCKIT AG is already accepting new investors and plans to list on a stock exchange later this year.
Get your motor hummin’...........
I was thinking pretty much the same thing
My helmet would need a hole for my man bun.
Jeeez! Who beat it with the ugly stick?
Not sure the article is worth reading considering the author could not even check Google to translate a phrase he thought was a company name.
Mittelstaendische Beteiligungsgesellschaft: Medium-sized holding company. The rest of it are two major cities in Germany.
Looks like a beach bike had a drunken one night stand with a Vespa.
Couldn’t the Germans have done the engineering in part with Italians doing the design? Most Ducati’s are beautiful high performance engineering boondoggles while most BMW’s are engineered beautifully but you have to look past their ugliness to appreciate it. I seem to recall the Germans and the Italians working together in the past. Maybe they can put their past cooperative efforts to a better use now.
I want to watch a video of a Mercedes doing 170 mph hit one of those.
And regular bikes you pedal AREN'T "emission-free"?
The whole "emission-free" thing is such a lie. Your body is a sophisticated engine that transforms food to energy to propel the bike. It takes a lot of energy to produce and deliver the food you eat. Obviously an e-bike is charged by coal-fired power plants.
I doubt it would be allowed on the Autobahn..............
I see what you did there.
My jacket’s gonna be cut and slim and checked
Maybe a touch of seersucker, with an open neck
I ride an eROCKIT scooter with my hair cut neat
I wear my wartime coat in the wind and sleet
Maybe Elton WILL WRITE A SONG ABOUT IT............eRockit Man!..............

Beautiful like a warthog. With less range.
“In pursuit of two leather clad rockers…”
Not sure why they think “made in Germany” is a plus. Germany’s plastic cars age horribly and become huge money pits. BMW motorcycles have more major quality issues than Harley-Davidson. The era of the eternally fixable and cheap Beetle are long gone. Over priced, overly complex and poor quality.
There’s no chance that I will buy a German anything with wheels.
Yikes. $13,000!! Lolololol.
