TAIPEI (Taiwan News) - In addition to prominent brands Gogoro and Kymco, Taiwanese company Otto Bike Co., Ltd. exports electric off-road motorbikes to Europe.

The company, based in Taipei City’s Xizhi District, launched its electric products in 2014, the Liberty Times reported Tuesday.

Its latest model is the electric off-road bike known as the MCR II, which stands for Mini City Racer.

The bike’s batteries allow it a maximum radius of 220 kilometers with a maximum speed of 105 kilometers per hour, according to the Liberty Times.

In addition to sophisticated brakes, Google Maps and a keyless ignition, the bike also has cameras installed back and front, allowing live broadcasting of one’s ride, Otto Bike said.

Over the past two years, the bike was presented to visitors of the Milan car show in Italy, but this summer Taiwanese enthusiasts would have the opportunity of trying out the machine in Pingtung County’s scenic Dapeng Bay area, the Liberty Times reported.
