Type 702
"La Bohème"

Developed by DEVS®

Czech
Symbol of Freedom

ORIGINALLY THE EXPORT BRAND FOR CZECHOSLOVAK SCOOTERS IN THE 1950S AND 1960S, "LA BOHÈME" STOOD FOR BOTH THE CZECH ORIGINS OF THE MOTORBIKES AND ALSO THE IDEAL OF A CAREFREE LIFESTYLE ON TWO-WHEELS.

Today, the La Boheme brand stays true to its heritage as the brand for the Prague-made Type 702 electric motorbike. This hand made motorbike is a testament to Czech craftsmanship and innovation.

next-gen café racer

Rooted in our love for Café Racer motorcycles, the La Bohème concept veers away from replicating the style of the past and strives for a contemporary twist.

Speed is the heartbeat of a Café Racer, and nothing ignites that thrill quite like the rapid acceleration of an AC electric motor. This motor paired with a lightweight build (that utilises numerous 3D-printed components) delivers exhilarating acceleration from 0 to 50 km/h in a mere 3.5 seconds, ranking among the fastest A1 motorbikes in the world.

Features in detail

Our tailor-made electronics regulate the entire speed spectrum, driven by our exclusive battery packs, ensuring safety and unmatched dependability. Automated controls are managed by an Arduino MCU, supported by custom-coded software engineered by our developers. The touchscreen interface provides riders with essential information, including distance to travel and selectable riding modes.

The patented DEVS RevFlex throttle regulates speed, providing both acceleration and deceleration functions. With braking, it can generate up to 600W, extending the range of the 10kWh battery by 10km. Expect a city range of approximately 200-250km. 😃

Premium equipment comprises Brembo brakes, Radial brake levers, Bluetooth speakers, ABS, Continental belt drive, Rizoma accessories, USB outlet, security cameras, GPS tracking and carbon detailing.

Availability is highly restricted with only one produced monthly for each of the three cities where we have dealers: Prague, Paris and London. Each is stamped with its own individual collector's number: like owning a piece of history with a futuristic twist.

Revflex throttle

Our own patented 3-position throttle called 'Revflex', allows you to accelerate, coast or decelerate (with recuperation and illuminating brake light). Braking with the throttle generates up to 600W of power back to the battery. In this way battery range is extended and brake pads last longer.

ABS

ABS

ABS is an abbreviation for Anti-lock Brake System. It is an active vehicle safety system that prevents the wheel from locking up during braking and thus the loss of adhesion between the wheel and the road, thus allowing the stability and controllability of the vehicle to be maintained in extreme situations (for example, during hard braking).

Premium tyres

Minimum tread is 1,6mm but we recommend 2,5mm because the handling and safety of a motorbike noticeably declines below this level. We currently recommend Metzeler Roadtec 01 as the best-tested Touring tyre. Its construction helps even out the wear caused by an electric motorbike's higher torque. And use of a tyre sealant like Slime prevents immediate deflating.

FAQs

general enquiry

How can I get in touch with Devs?

You can mail us anytime at mail@devs.bike. We're happy to help and answer all your enquiries.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept bank transfers to our Czech company bank account. All deposits are refundable subject to terms and conditions.


sales

What motorbikes are available?

Small-series production will begin in late summer 2024. We will make only one per month. If you want to be informed when new motorbikes will be available for sale, please contact mail@devs.bike or follow us on Instagram.

Do you sell outside Czechia?

Yes, the 702 is road-legal and will be available in France and the UK.

Can I return my Devs motorbike?

You can return your motorcycle within 14 days of the day you received it, if it is in new and original condition. The shipping costs associated with returning the motorbike are at your own charge and the motorbike must be in its original packing and not exhibit any signs of usage. Alternatively, we will accept returns at our own discretion and apply a restocking fee of 15%.


services

What is Devs' warranty policy?

We give a two-year warranty on our motorbikes. Our sustainability pledge to continue to support them and keep them running for as long as possible.


maintenance

What maintenance is required?

An electric motorcycle requires no oil changes, fuel filters, spark plugs or emission checks. Instead we offer an annual Maintenance Inspection of your vehicle to check the battery and electronics systems and implement any available upgrades that improve your motorbike.

Do I have to be careful when I wash the motorbike?

We add silicon gel to all the electrical connections and there is not really any possibility of creating a shortcut. But still it is important to be careful not to allow water to collect in pools inside the motorbike which may cause corrosion. For this reason we do not recommend to use any hose with water jet. The better way is to use a cloth, soap and a bucket of hot water. Our tip to polish the panels - use e.g. a furniture polish like Pronto. It's cheap and just as effective as specialist products.


legal

What licence do I need?

The Type 702 is in European vehicle class "L3e-A1" (like 125cc). It is possible to ride A1 with a B car licence in the Czech Republic. Other countries like Austria require a 1-day basic training course without test. It's best to contact your local driving authorities as rules can change. With regards to safety, we prefer owners with a minimum of 3 years road-registered experience by either car or motorbike.

Can I ride on the motorway?

Electric motorbikes can go on the motorways in Europe as long as they go fast enough to safely stay keep up in traffic. This means it would be OK, for example, to use our Type 702 if 1200km/h suffices. Typically this is only urban motorways.


batteries

How do I charge?

Plug the charging cable into the bike's charger socket and the other end into any standard 120-240V AC household socket. Charging is completely automatic using custom electronic systems that will optimise the lifetime of the battery.

How long to charge the pack?

In the EU, it charges at a rate of 2000W from a domestic 220-240v socket. The 10kWh pack will therefore charge from 0% to 100% in 5 hours. In other words, it's perfect for overnight charging. It is possible to charge a lot faster - even as quickly as 60 minutes with optional DC-DC charging - but generally we don't recommend this unless you believe it's essential because it shortens the life of the battery.

How do I know when to charge?

There is a meter in the instrument panel that reads just like a petrol gauge. If you are running low, a warning light will flash and we recommend you switch to the slowest mode. Electronics prevent over discharge.

Are the batteries safe?

The battery pack uses NCM Li-ion cells (the same manufacturer's cells as used by Tesla). They are proven safe according to the legal regulations of UN R136 tests and recyclable with long lifetimes when properly operated.

How long does the pack last?

If looked after correctly, tests indicate a peak life of at least 2000 cycles over 10 years, which is in the range of approximately 150,000km - 200,000km. During this time, its capacity (and range) falls by around 20%, but of course it remains useable in the bike or maybe recycled. The pack contains sophisticated management systems and is maintenance free.
