Who has never dreamed of climbing on a motorcycle and going on an adventure? Ok, I’m going astray, we are not in a movie and safety first… However to taste this sensation is now easily accessible thanks to Eric and his electric motorcycle rental in Alsace, in Selestat!

When I was asked to test the Wattrider concept, I said yes without hesitation, as I love testing new things! Then, as the day approached, I was wavering between the excitement of getting back to the teenage feeling of riding a motorcycle/scooter and the hesitation that it might not be my age anymore.

Electric motorcycle rental in Selestat

So here I am in Selestat in a computer repair store in front of the manager who explains me that he diversified his activity a few months ago, in connection with his passion for motorcycle and his environmental conscience. Then follows the inevitable administrative process (rental contract, credit card print and photo of the B license!), and that’s it. Equipped with gloves and helmet, I meet my mount: a beautiful electric motorcycle Super Soco 50cc vintage style green!

I am under the spell, I listen carefully to all the well detailed instructions, make a round trip to warm up. Nothing complicated, let’s go, let’s go for the adventure! Uh, but where are we going? We are in the center of Selestat with nearly 100km of autonomy… We will take the time to look at the routes proposed on the site and especially to be guided by the signs, the old way! You can choose to stay on the Route des Vins but also to go to the Route des CrĂŞtes.

Electric motorcycle ride on the Wine Route

Direction Châtenois and the pretty villages of the Alsace Wine Route to go to the Haut-Koenigsbourg through the twists and turns of a forest road: I gain confidence, I vary the modes 1-2-3, I easily reach 45km/h or even 60km/h in the descents. It seems reasonable compared to other motorized vehicles, but you still feel like a nobody when you get passed by an SUV. In any case, it’s a pleasure to smell the trees and not the gasoline of one’s bike, to rub shoulders with the cyclists and to greet the “real” bikers with a small gesture!

To finish the loop, after Thannenkirch I drive along the wine road in futuristic mode with many photo stops. I could have pushed on to Ribeauvillé, but the 4h formula is already a rush of emotions!

With trembling legs and a smile on your face, I invite you to test the electric motorcycle in a romantic duo or with friends and to follow Wattrider in its development of a 0 carbon offer!
