Bultaco continues to expand its European retail network with the opening of the first showroom in the UK’s capital London. The legendary Spanish motorcycle manufacturer relaunched in 2014 and has since seen an impressive start-up phase with the introduction of a range of innovative, fully electric vehicles and the development of a commercial network with dealers in Spain, Italy, France, Belgium, and the UK. The London showroom Fully Charged Electric Bikes is located close to the heart of the Financial District and strategically connected to London’s East-West cycle superhighway, which opened few weeks ago. Fully Charged will be amongst the first of fourteen stores that stock and support the Bultaco range of products in the UK including Barnsley, Cannock, Doncaster, Glasgow, High Wycombe, Leicester, Lincoln, North and South Wales, North London, Poole and Worthing, which are going live in July this year.
The first range of innovative Moto Bikes by Bultaco, the Brinco line, includes four models, each with a different specification for different types of users, but sharing the same fully independent twist throttle system. Following the launch of the Brinco R, the most radical vehicle of the range, Bultaco now introduces the road-going C, S and R-E versions, which will be presented to the global press for the very first time at the new retail point in London
For Bultaco innovating is not just about achieving new technological goals, but also offering new experiences. Its Brinco is something completely new and groundbreaking, the result of its commitment to taking the Bultaco spirit into a new era, with a new language, but always faithful to the brand’s undying values: passion, innovation and competition. With the Brinco Bultaco offers a totally original approach to conceiving of and experiencing two-wheeled transport. A surprising combination of the motorcycle and bicycle worlds: electric propulsion and the physical experience of pedalling, independently, or a perfect combination of both systems. Each rider decides at all times how to maximize and perfect the symbiosis between the throttle and pedals.
The new Bultaco Brinco is a product that focuses on customers seeking a sporty and emission free ride experience for use both on and off the road. Based on the all-terrain racer Brinco R, the three street certified Pedelec and Speed Pedelec derivatives of the Brinco, the R-E (road-legal Enduro), C (Comfort) and S (Street) offer both the advantage of a safe and easy-going electric bicycle for the road as well as the fun of an uncompromising off-road two-wheeler. It complements the Brinco range, which now includes four models:
The trailblazing BULTACO Brinco R is our genuine, non street-certified version, our sportiest, and the
perfect choice for those who want to enjoy rides on private trails and tracks, along with high-performance features, with its powerful motor and motorcycle frame and shock absorption bearing the Bultaco seal.
The Brinco R boasts a PRO suspension system with an adjustable inverted fork featuring a spectacular 180 mm of travel on the front wheel, and 217 mm on the rear, along with high-performance tires allowing riders to head anywhere they want. The ultimate in fun, without any limits. The motor is the same on all the Brincos. With maximum power of 2 kW and a top speed of 60 km/h, it packs the capacity to take you anywhere, and its energy can be dosed out using its three different riding modes: Sport, Tour and Eco.
The electric motor’s power is supplied by a powerful, highly durable 1.3 kWh Lithium-Ion battery that weighs just 8 kilos and can be completely recharged in only three hours using a household outlet. The battery life on the Brincos will depend on what mode they are used in, ranging from 50 km, in Sport mode, to over 100 km, in ECO mode.
RRP inc. VAT ￡3995.00
The street-certified version of the Brinco R is the R-E, which retains all the features of the Brinco R, but can be ridden without any restrictions. It is the all-purpose Brinco par excellence: though it can be taken off-road, it can also be ridden on public streets, in both city and in the country. The R-E is the Brinco for those who love off-roading and sporty features, but don’t want to give up using it for all kinds of riding, on all types of terrain. The Brinco R-E differs aesthetically from the Brinco R in that it includes everything needed for use on urban roads, such as a rear view mirror, rear mudguard with a license plate mount, headlight (LED with automatic ignition sensor) and reflectors; rear, side, and on the pedals, as well as rear and brake lights, a side kickstand and the requisite horn.

Bultaco wants to give all kinds of riders the chance to have and enjoy a Brinco. The Bultaco brand
guarantees top quality and prestige, and an exclusive product that the most advanced riders will be able to take full advantage of, but there’s a Brinco for everyone. The Brinco C is the perfect choice for those looking for more leisurely rides in the country, without any need for the most high-performance features. The Brinco C features a more comfortable riding position than the R and the R-E, thanks to its lowered seat (50 mm lower than the R, R-E), comfortable touring handlebars (10 mm wider and with a more ergonomic design). The suspension systems, on the Brinco C dubbed “Comfort,” feature 150 mm of travel, front and rear, rather than the 180 mm on the R and R-E, up front, and the 270 mm in back. The Brinco C is a version certified for all kinds of use. Equipped with fewer of the sportiest features, it is more accessible for riders of all types and sizes. The perfect choice for fun rides in and outside the city. It is easily distinguished from the rest of the line by its unique green and yellow, along with all the components required for its certification, as described above.

The Brinco’s “urbanite” is branded with the letter S, for “Street”, and offers two elegant color combinations, in black and white. The Brinco S sacrifices nothing in terms of its sturdiness, quality, features and prestige – all genuine Bultaco. The product’s philosophy is exactly the same – 100% fun – but its technical solutions are designed for riding in the city with reference to its features and the comfort it delivers. This is the Brinco for those looking to get around the city combining the exercise of pedalling with the energy from its powerful motor, or to enjoy a pleasant weekend ride, or for a fun ride to work, and a trip back getting some exercise and eliminating the toxins from a hard day at the office. The Brinco S is designed for more city-bound users: a comfort-oriented suspension, 150 mm of travel, front and rear, in this case on road wheels with 24-inch rims and studless tires. The Brinco S is undoubtedly the Brinco offering the highest level of comfort in the line, with a lower seat (50 mm) and comfortable touring handlebars (10 mm wider than on the R/R-E, and with optimized ergonomics) – like on the Brinco C – and it is also equipped with a comfort-oriented seat, standard.
