There is no doubt then that Blacksmith is a reputed EV brand. However, the company is yet to launch an electric vehicle. Blacksmith revealed the B2 electric motorcycle on 01 July, 2019 and less than two months later, the company has now revealed the B3 electric scooter.

The turn signal indicators are placed below it on either side. The mudguard up front is yet another throwback to quite a few legendary scooters of the past. The rear is simple and neat, with an LED tail lamp and LED indicators.

The scooter certainly looks premium and comes with performance to match. It is powered by an electric motor with a continuous power output of 5kW (6.7bhp) and a peak power of 14.5kW (19.4bhp). Blacksmith claims the B3 can touch a top speed of 120km/h. However, we expect the speed to be limited through riding modes in the interest of having a decent range.

Blacksmith has been in the EV industry for a long time with no vehicles to show for it until recently. Now though, it does appear that the years of research has paid off with the company revealing two new products in under two months. Reports have claimed that the B3 will go into production in 2020. We can't wait to see what the final product looks like.
