VinFast Auto (Nasdaq; VFS) officially announces the US rollout of the DrgnFly electric bike at CES 2024. Underpinned by the message “Ride your style,” the DrgnFly offers riders a unique and thrilling experience, contributing to catalyzing the future of accessible, electric mobility for everyone.
The name “DrgnFly” is inspired by the image of the “ascending dragon,” which has deep roots in the proud history of Thang Long, Vietnam. The launch is just one year after its initial showcase underscores VinFast’s unwavering commitment to a sustainable future of green mobility for everyone.
The VinFast Drgnfly launches in the US market with prices expected to start from $2,800 USD, accompanies by a two-year and unlimited mileage warranty. The electric bike is expected to debut in other global markets in the near future.
Designed in collaboration with Esklid Hansen, an innovative Danish studio with multiple Red Dot Design awards, the DrgnFly seamlessly combines a vintage design inspired by the golden era of motorcycles and a commitment to a sustainable future. The DrgnFly design stands out with a V-shaped, elongated frame reminiscent of the image of a flying dragon – “Thang Long,” symbolizing VinFast’s efforts to venture beyond.
Refined from the design to the experience, the DrgnFly has a wide handlebar, balloon tires and an ergonomic riding position, optimizing the experience for riders to confidently conquer every journey.
Crafted from lightweight yet durable aluminum, the frame ensures both resilience and ease of handling. The exposed battery pack seamlessly integrates into the frame, creating harmonious blend of classic aesthetics and electric innovation. With a driving range of up to 63 miles (102 km) and a detachable lithium-ion battery, the DrgnFly is an innovative electric mobility option that is also convenient and accessible for everyone.
The DrgnFly features a 750W engine integrated into the rear wheel and a torque sensor for smooth and instantaneous power delivery with a top speed of 28 mph (45 km/h). Underpinning the DrgnFly’s performance is an advance energy management system, boasting a long travel distance, instant power, and multiple riding modes. The torque sensor adapts to movements with remarkable smoothness, detecting force changes 16,000 times for second, far surpassing traditional cadence sensors used in typical e-bikes.
