RCA is a brand that goes back more than 100 years, producing everything from radio receivers to some of the first televisions. Following a decline in the late 20th century, the RCA company was acquired by GE, with its various trademarks ending up in the portfolios of many different companies.
Thanks to licensing, the RCA name has shown up on TVs in the recent past, as well as projectors, tablets, and even refrigerators. RCA Records also remains in business.
Now, the RCA name has returned once again, this time on a line of E-Bikes and E-Scooters that debuted at CES last week. The products are expected to arrive on the market in late Q2 or early Q3 2023.
The line consists of three e-bikes and four e-scooters. The Dirt-E e-bike features “a modern design reminiscent of the classic Italian super motorcycle,” the company said. The Explorer “boasts a high-capacity battery, aluminum suspension and frame, Shimano Tourney derailleurs, color LCD, and up to a 40-mile radius per charge.” The Go-Go, meanwhile, is described as “a compact folding bike that’s easy to transport in a vehicle and store at home or work.”
The four e-scooters are the City Rush, which features “ off-road air tires, turn signals, brake lights, a high-power motor with precision handling, and 125-mile range”; the Cruiser Premium, which offers “high-tech features, a stylish design, and a powerful motor with weight capacity up to 330 lbs”; the Vita, described as a “handy folding e-scooter ideal for college campus commutes,” and the PowerKid scooter for children, which offers “high-visibility LED front light and blinking brake light to take the kids for fun and safe trips around town.”
