Period Correct x SUPER73 collaboration results in motorsport-inspired, limited edition e-bike
SUPER73® – the American lifestyle adventure brand specializing in electric motorbikes – continues to work with leading global brands, producing limited edition products that appeal to diehard fans. And the latest project is in partnership with ultra-cool California clothing brand, Period Correct.
Internationally known for its capsule clothing collections inspired by motorsports heritage and automotive design, Period Correct is an innovator and cultural leader that has previously worked with McLaren, Audi, Stance, Anti Social Social Club, Modernica, and more. It has a new location in Playa Vista, CA, displaying the latest products alongside inspirational automobiles, creating the perfect vibe for automotive enthusiasts. It’s also the venue for monthly gatherings of like-minded enthusiasts to meet and engage in automotive culture.
Bryan Calvero, founder of Period Correct, has been a fan and customer of SUPER73 for years. Not only did he first experience the electric motorbikes at his partner’s home, but also uses them at race tracks to roam the pits and paddock area.
“With my familiarization, the collaboration with SUPER73 was very organic for me,” Bryan told us. “I drew inspiration from my passion for early BMW tuning specialists, and the Period Correct x SUPER73-S1 is an homage to the heyday of the German tuning houses.”
The two Southern California design teams worked together to capture the essence of Bryan’s inspiration for the Period Correct x SUPER73-S1. It began with the custom-painted deep blue frame, fenders and battery. The battery and frame also carry the Period Correct logo in silver, while the seat is upholstered in a durable fabric with contrasting blue and green graphics.
Additional custom items include Northshore lock-on grips from Lizard Skins, as well as a set of Rascal pedals from Origin8 to improve the S1’s pedal-assist riding modes, and offer the rider even more control.
Like all SUPER73-S1 models, the collaborative S1 features a removable 768 watt-hour battery, which can be charged from any standard 110v outlet, resulting in an estimated range of more than 25 miles* at 20mph under throttle-only operation, and in excess of 35 miles using ECO pedal assist mode.
Other standard features include an aluminum cargo rack and 20x4.25” all-terrain tires for paved road and light-duty off-road adventures. It also has Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, which are sealed for low maintenance and longer life. Visit super73.com for more info.
The Period Correct x SUPER73-S1 is limited to 15 units, which will be available exclusively from Period Correct at PeriodCorrect.com when it goes on sale on Saturday, August 28 at 9AM PT. Set your alarm now if you want to own this special model because it’s sure to sell-out quickly.
The Period Correct x SUPER73-S1 will be publicly unveiled at a Cars & Coffee event at the Period Correct Atelier, which is located at 12775 Millennium Drive, Playa Vista, CA 90094. It's happening Saturday, August 28 at 9AM-12PM. There will also be a Group Ride for SUPER73 owners starting at 8AM, and a Group Drive from 8:30AM.
