We'd like to introduce the new 2023 Haibike Lyke electric bike models combining a lightweight carbon fibre frame, brand new Fazua Ride 60 eBike drive system, top shelf componentry & super sharp looks. The Haibike Lyke is aimed at a market shifting towards lower power & ever lighter electric mountain bikes.
What you need to know about the Lyke?
It's super light weight
The new 2023 Haibike Lyke is the lightest Haibike eBike Haibike has ever made! Focussed on trail riders that need a light-weight hill killer that's not the regular weight of an eMTB.
It's controlled, fast & predictable
Combining a light-weight frame alongside the new Fazua Ride 60 eSystem, the Lyke is as controlled as a regular MTB, but fast and predicable to get you up the climbs as fast and with the most fun possible!
It's the sleekest looking Haibike
The whole Fazua Ride 60 system is integrated neatly into the Haibike carbon frame. Super sharp lines and modern geometry. Could this be the sleekest Haibike ever to be made? We think so...
The 2023 Haibike Lyke comes in 3 model spec's
The new Haibike Lyke electric bikes are offered in 3 model specs to meet all riders demands. All 3 models feature the brand new light-weight carbon fibre frame, latest 12-speed drivetrain, Fazua Ride 60 eDrive system, 29" wheel platform and 140mm of trail eating suspension travel.
All 3 models are compatible with the (optional) 210Wh Fazua Range Extender. Let's take a look at each model in brief:

The All New Fazua Ride 60 System
Fazua (now owned by Porsche!) are making waves with their super light weight rider focussed drive systems. The predecessor Fazua Ride 50 drive system is where it started, now with the new 2023 Fazua Ride 60 system it get's a 11% reduction in overall weight whilst increasing battery capacity by 53% and to top it all off a increase of 18% more torque too!

The 2023 Haibike Lyke utilises the new Ride 60 Motor, the Ring Control, LED Hub and 430Wh battery. Let's take a look at each component in a little more detail:
Fazua Ride 60 2023 Motor
The Ride 60 motor is perfectly integrated into the Lyke frame. The motor comes in at just 2.2kg. It's super smooth, responsive and plenty of climbing torque too. The bike turns on as soon as the bike moves. No fumbling around for that power button!
Fazua Ride 60 2023 Ring Control
The Fazua Ring Control sits to the left of the handlebars and doesn't intrude on the rider cockpit. It allows quick assistance mode adjustments on-the-fly, the LED lights change per ride mode. You can also use it to utilise the walk assist function.
Fazua Ride 60 2023 LED Hub
The new LED hub is integrated in the top tube of the Lyke. It shows you at a glance what ride mode you are using, it also shows the current battery level. New features are likely due to the LED hub offering both Bluetooth & ANT+ connectivity.
Fazua 210Wh Range Extender
If the 430Wh battery in the Haibike Lyke for 2023 isn't enough for some riders, Fazua are offering an (optional) 210Wh Range Extender to run alongside the main battery. This increases the battery capacity by 40% from 430Wh up to a whopping 640Wh!
Fazua Smart Phone App
The new smart phone app allows the rider to either download pre-defined assistance modes or completely optimise the ride modes to your riding style. You can also update your entire Fazua system wirelessly using the app too. Neat huh?
What do we think of the Lyke 2023?
The new 2023 Haibike Lyke range sure is at the top of it's game. Bearing in mind Haibike were the first ever brand to produce the full electric mountain bike, we expected Haibike to come up with a super light weight bike to smash the competition in this new emerging eBike segment.
With Haibike utilising their German design and engineering to produce a super new frameset, alongside Fazua (also German!) launching the new Ride 60, the perfect motor drive system to compliment the Haibike Lyke for 2023.
Here's what Haibike said about the Lyke:
"Our new eBike generation makes it possible to ride further than ever before, making the world around us even more exciting than we dreamed possible"
We're awaiting more details on the Lyke range to come through, today sets the soft launch with stock expected to emerge in Spring 2023. Dates and weights are still TBC, however we're taking pre-orders as of today for all those riders lucky enough to get their hands on one!
