To put it in Twitter terms, GMC’s new Hummer EV is an “absolute unit,” a super-sized, super-fast truck that’s far from its gas-guzzling H1, H2 and H3 predecessors. Now, the Hummer EV ethos is coming to the world of e-bikes, as GMC has teamed with e-bike manufacturer Recon for a Hummer EV-inspired mountain bike. A hardtail bike with all-wheel-drive capability and fat tires, the Hummer EV E-bike is decidedly fast and furious.

A 48-volt, 750-watt Bafang motor with a peak power of 1,200 watts charges each wheel, with a detachable 1 kWh battery pack providing power. Three riding modes are available: “cruise” mode, which sends 100% of the power to the rear wheel, “traction” mode, which does the inverse by diverting full power to the front wheel and “adrenaline” mode, which divvies the power up evenly between both wheels. The bike’s top speed is limited to 28 mph. Other features include a sturdy front fork, super-sized Kenda tires, a rear storage rack and four-piston brakes. The bike is something of a full-circle moment for Hummer, who, in the ’00s, teamed up with Montague for a folding mountain bike.

“GMC is excited to collaborate with Recon as they develop the GMC Hummer EV AWD Ebike,” said GMC’s marketing director Rich Latek “With design cues and inspiration taken directly from the GMC Hummer EV Supertruck, this e-bike further expands customer’s ability to explore different off-road trails — whether in the vehicle or out on the bike.”

The Hummer EV e-bike starts at $3,999 USD and comes with a 17.5 amp hour battery pack. If you want a more powerful version, there’s a 21 amp-hour iteration of the bike for $4,175 USD as well. The price is undeniably steep, but not out of reason for AWD e-bikes: Recon’s in-line Stryker bike, which features less powerful motors, is priced at $3,799 USD. Pre-orders for the EV e-bike are open now, with a $500 USD deposit required for a reservation and a shipping date of early December.
