Last week we introduced our very first high-speed bike, the VanMoof V: a new, category-busting hyperbike designed to energize our cities and elevate our speed. We’re venturing into uncharted territory to reset the hierarchy on the roads. But why now? And why a high-speed bike? You’ve got dozens of burning questions about our latest innovation, but don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. Dive into the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about the VanMoof V so far.
First things first: why a high-speed bike?
People adapt quickly. And with a brighter future in sight, there’s a call for alternative modes of transportation that are cleaner, smarter, and can get you around our biggest cities even faster. At VanMoof, we like to think of ourselves as mavericks to the bone: we’re always trying to offer something undeniably better than what’s out there. And if we’re going to irreversibly reverse the world’s car-first mentality, the VanMoof V has to be pretty special. With this bike, the power of the e-bike is set to be boosted for good.
Hold up! We’re just getting our heads around the VanMoof S3 & X3. Will the VanMoof V replace your city e-bikes?
No – the VanMoof V will sit alongside the VanMoof S3 & X3 to offer a viable option for riders who battle longer commutes or live further away from the city. We’re confident that with the addition of the VanMoof V to our fleet, we’ll convince more people than ever that life’s better on two wheels. And don’t worry – we’ll continue to evolve and refine our VanMoof S3 & X3 so there’s always something for everyone both on and off the bike lane.
When can I get my hands on the VanMoof V?
We’ll be developing the VanMoof V over the upcoming year, and expect to start deliveries by the end of 2022. We’re venturing into a new category to revolutionize our roads, so we’ll use the time ahead to perfect every detail of what will be a game-changing bike.

- When the VanMoof V is ready for delivery, you’ll receive an invite via email to complete your final payment. The reservation amount will be deducted from the expected retail price.
- The first riders to reserve the VanMoof V will be the first to receive the invite to finalize their payment. We'll divide reservations into batches, and each batch will get enough time to complete their order before we invite the next batch.
