Rayvolt TORINO

February 14, 2024

Can one be visionary today over such a short period as the last five years? Before the COVID crisis and after? The electric bike sector is evolving fantastically fast, as are the associated technologies. Is a smart ebike designed five years ago still relevant today? Should it fall into the abyss of niche products with few buyers, or does it deserve to be upgraded with current technologies? In the case of the Rayvolt Torino, I would lean towards a well-deserved upgrade.

Introduced in Barcelona in 2019, along with two other models, the Ambassador and the Cruzer, the Rayvolt range drew inspiration from the sturdy lines that determined the success of early 19th-century American Indian motorcycle models or 1970s Californian Beach Cruiser bicycles with wide tires.

Just for the pleasure of the eyes...

The unique curve of the Rayvolt Torino evokes the vision of a young bull. The integration of leather elements, (even if I am not a fan of leather), truly makes the Torino attractive for retro ebike enthusiasts.

The Torino is therefore a fat speed ebike with avant-garde (cutting-edge) technology for 2019: a gyroscope system accompanying a torque and pedaling sensor, regenerative rear pedaling, thumb throttle, and Bluetooth connection to an application. Samsung batteries nestled in the frame in a very aesthetic and ingenious way in 2019. Technologies have evolved up to today with the Beachin, Cruzer Chopper, and X One models.

Notably, when looking at the Rayvolt shop in Taiwan, a major asset that reconciles retro looks with current environmental concerns is the possibility of equipping oneself with a solar battery charger!

The Torino is a niche model, and one can truly question its ergonomics and impact on everyday driving comfort, but it is enough to satisfy enthusiasts of another era. The components are customized in the name of the brand, making it difficult to assess the actual quality of the e-bike; the brand of the hydraulic brakes or the motor is unknown. The application offers intelligent control of bike parameters; however, it is limited by the design of the 2019 Torino and is better suited to newer models.
