The Kemen SUV is powered by a Shimano Steps EP8 motor with 85Nm of torque. There’s a 540Wh high-energy density battery that’s proprietary to Orbea, fully integrated into the frame. Orbea says it will give you more than five hours of ride time, although, as with any ebike, that’s dependent on how and where you ride it.
Its smart charger will fully recharge the battery in four hours and is designed to extend the battery’s lifespan by up to 30 per cent.
You can buy an optional 252Wh range extender battery to add extra capacity.
The Kemen SUV also has integrated StVZO-compliant lighting. The rear light has a built-in accelerometer and shines more brightly under deceleration, acting as a brake warning light.
Other neat features include fully integrated cabling for the motor controls and display through the bars and stem and into the frameset.
The rear brake hose and shifter cables run externally at the bars, then internally from the stem, lowering the risk of damage or contamination, according to Orbea, and reducing frame clutter.
Orbea uses the latest Shimano Linkglide drivetrain on the Kemen SUV. Designed specifically for electric bikes, this beefs up the chain and sprockets to handle the extra torque from the mid-mounted motor. It’s said to increase durability, while also providing smoother shifting under load.
Compared to the standard Kemen 30, the SUV has wider rims and 2.35in tyres.
