Motobecane has made quite a name for themselves by producing some of the most affordable bikes with really good components spec. Sold exclusively online, their cut-out-the-middleman approach allows them to offer their bicycles (road, tri, mountain, commuter, casual, womens) at amazing prices. This tradition continues with the announcement of two new road bikes for the 2017 model year.
Motobecane USA has a new titanium and aero carbon road bike for this year and both versions are kitted with SRAM’s eTap wireless drivetrain. These are not yet listed on their website and there is only a limited number being produced.
Motobecane Le Champion Titanium Inferno
The Le Champion Titanium Inferno has a full SRAM red eTap drivetrain with Ritchey WCS components and Mavic Ksyrium Elite Black 25 Wheels. Motobecane lists the full MSRP value at $7900 and the special “Early Promo” pricing is an amazing $3199. That is for a complete bike with ti frame and SRAM eTap gruppo.
Motobecane Le Champion CF Inferno
The Le Champion CF Inferno is a carbon framed aero model with what Motobecane calls their AP2X Kamm section aero technology tubing. It also has a full SRAM red eTap drivetrain with Ritchey components and Mavic Ksyrium Elite Black 25 Wheels. Motobecane lists the full MSRP value at $7495 and the special “Early Promo” pricing is an amazing $2999. That is for a complete bike with carbon aero frame and SRAM eTap gruppo.
For the mountain bikers out there, Motobecane is also working on a model called the HAL6 mountain bike with a four bar linkage design with a lowered chainstay pivot that provides 6 inches of rear travel. This bike will be fitted with a SRAM Eagle groupset and will no doubt, also be an incredible value.
As anyone can see, these two bikes offer an amazing value considering the cost of a SRAM Red eTap groupset itself is about $3000.
