Owners can option up the NKD with a hand-stitched honeycomb saddle in Lambo-style Alcantara suede, a USB port for charging devices on the go, integrated LED headlamp, tail-lamp and bar-end turn signals, LCD dash screen, and dual sport off-road knobby Pirelli tyres.
Fonzarelli design director Wenley Andrews has been working on the design for 10 months.
“I’ve built and designed all manner of bikes in my time,” Wenley says.
“I wanted it to be versatile where you could take it off-road into sand dunes and hills – and compact enough to put in the back of my Jeep.”
Michelle had an unlikely education as a motorcycle manager studying Mid-East politics and Arabic at Sydney Uni.
She then spent some time working in her father’s bus company helping to make Australia’s first hybrid and electric buses.
“I developed a real passion for developing electric motorcycle powertrains as I was already a rider,” she says.
Fonzarelli have so far sold 800 electric scooters in Australia and New Zealand and Michelle hopes to branch into Europe and UK with the NKD and X1 scooter.
