Tucker Launches Extensive New e-Power Product Catalog

Featuring over 200 products, including e-bikes, scooters and gear, Fort Worth, Texas based Tucker Powersports has launched an extensive new catalog of products "which will equip all motorcycle, off-road and scooter dealers with the products necessary to succeed in the electric bicycle market."
The Tucker e-Power product line includes electric bicycles, electric scooters, riding gear, apparel and related equipment. The worldwide electric bike industry has experienced tremendous growth and is expected to grow by over 50% and reach nearly $35 billion in 2026.

"We are taking steps to help our dealer network broaden their product offering which will draw in a new audience looking for fun-to-ride bikes and scooters, along with the clothing and gear that make the experience even better," said Brad Turner, Tucker's VP of Sales. "Our launch of the e-Power line with over 200 products makes it one of our largest new product programs ever."

A highlight of the new offering is the range is the range of e-bikes from Fantic. Founded in 1968, the respected and race pedigree-rich Italian on and off-road motorcycle manufacturer is seeing huge growth in Europe. "E-bikes are a hot market segment and Tucker Powersports has been named the authorized distributor of Italian-made Fantic e-bikes." Initial products from Fantic include five high performance e-mountain bike models that will be available to dealers in June.  
A sibling brand to Tucker's historic Twin Power V-twin product offering, the new e-Power program provides dealers with a fully digital catalog of products that include hard-to-get electric mountain bikes, electric scooters, helmets, gloves, apparel, elbow and knee pads and braces, tires, lubricants, cleaners, tools, locks, alarms, handlebars, carriers and straps.
Many of the apparel products are available for adults and children. Several of the new products are sourced from current Tucker partners like 100%, Muc-Off and Strider, along with bicycle tools and equipment from Tucker's BikeMaster brand. Tucker will also implement training and support programs for its e-Power dealers, including additional point of sale supplies and digital marketing materials.
In addition to the Fantic program, other notables include a broad range of electric scooters from Dualtron and Minimotors Speedway.
The five high-end products from Fantic are the XEF1.9, XTF 1.5, XTF 1.5 Carbon, XMF 1.7 and XMF 1.7 Carbon. All five bikes feature name-brand components, full suspension and disc brakes. Each bike is available in several frame sizes and the premium models include carbon fiber frames. All feature 36 volt, 250W mid-drive motors from Brose. The top of the range XMF 1.7 has a Fantic Integra 720 Wh Li-ion battery, Sram gears and brakes, Fulcrum wheels and Rock Shox front forks.
Tucker says its offering of 16 electric scooters from Dualtron and Minimotors Speedway have "capabilities that run from a fun commuter platform to serious off-road performer, and ranges of up to 80 miles per charge - these aren't the old aluminum units that are in the back of many garages. They include options such as hydraulic disc brakes, ABS, no-puncture inflatable tires and LED lights."
Marc McAllister, President and CEO of Tucker Powersports, says: "This is just a start. Electric vehicles are a big part of the world's future transportation and recreation. The mission of our e-Power line is to help our dealer network take advantage of this tremendous opportunity to expand their business and bring in a whole new segment of customers."
