Miami is buzzing with talk of the newest toy for the streets—an electric bicycle called the Falkon. Is it a motorcycle? A bike? The newest yacht gadget? The first thing to know is that it is a half electric moped, half bike, which means if you don’t want to pedal, you don’t have to. What’s more, it has room for two. For more information, The Luxury Network sat down with CEO Alex Tiedtke to get the scoop on the latest luxury product.
So, what makes the Falkon interesting?
With a retro look reminiscent of café racer motorcycles of the ‘50s and ‘60s, the Falkon simply turns heads. Engineered and designed in Austria by Lohner GmbH, the Falkon is the world’s first and only design-forward, two-seater electric bicycle. With an elegant, curved body and candy-shell enamel paint, the Falkon sets a new standard for elegant design in electric bicycles. The silhouette is stunning, with graceful body contours, precise angles, and a large, circular headlamp. The aesthetic is eye-catching, with sophisticated color combinations and a long, cushioned leather saddle for two passengers.
Pedal Less, Play More
The Falkon is first and foremost an electric bicycle, meaning you never have to pedal unless you are looking for a little exercise. The motorcycle-style throttle on the right handlebar will get you up and running quickly, powered by the electric motor in the rear wheel hub. The Falkon is assembled using the highest quality components, with front suspension, disc brakes, automatic gear shifting, and oversized wheels. It has an electric drive train and motor, along with a high-capacity lithium-ion battery, meaning you can ride in style for hours at a time. A spacious front glove compartment built into the body provides room for purses, towels, and, most importantly, the battery charger—so you can recharge for long-distance cruises. Tiedtke highly recommends nestling a Bluetooth speaker in your glove compartment for on-the-go tunes.
Luxury for Two
The benefits of having a comfortable two-seater saddle cannot be overstated. Grab a date and cruise to the beach, up the river, or downtown. Ride on the sidewalk or on the road, avoid red lights, and zoom through traffic to park anywhere you choose.
One of the more modern elements of the Falkon is the hands-free, Bluetooth app that controls the e-bike. Once you connect using your smartphone and the Lohner App, you can measure distance and speed as well as change power settings. The in-app security features mean that once you connect to your Falkon for the first time, no one else can use it unless they have your passcode.
The Bottom Line
Quite simply, the Falkon is the most intriguing and attractive electric bicycle in existence. Tiedtke challenges you to “go ahead and search the competition; there is nothing like it anywhere. As versatile as it is stylish, the Falkon is always ready to hit the road with you and your plus-one. Oh, and get ready to talk about it, because people are going to be stopping you every day to ask.”
Falkon’s recent 2021 product campaign was shot at the residence of John H. Ruiz, founder of MSP Recover Law Firm. Entrepreneur, attorney, and businessman, John H. Ruiz, is the founder of the MSP Recovery Law Firm and MSP Recovery, the country’s fastest-growing data analytics company and the nation’s leader in healthcare recoveries. Ruiz innovated and designed the business and IT platforms at MSP Recovery, which the nation’s largest healthcare organizations rely upon to maximize their recovery potential.
Among his countless awards, John H. Ruiz is recognized as one of America’s pre-eminent trial lawyers. He was named “2019’s DBR Florida Trailblazer” for his groundbreaking work in integrating data analytics into the practice of law and for the positive impact it’s having on healthcare recoveries across the mainland U.S. and Puerto Rico. Over the course of his distinguished 30-year legal career, Ruiz has also gained national recognition in a class action, mass tort litigation, MDL consolidated cases, medical malpractice, products liability, personal injury, real estate, and aviation disaster cases.
He prides himself on hard work and perseverance, lessons taught to him by his mother and father, Nelida and Emeterio Ruiz, Cuban immigrants who came to this country with nothing but the hope of giving their kids a better life. And that, they did! Coming from those humble beginnings in Miami gave Ruiz the motivation to beat the odds and make his parents proud. He went on to be the first in his family to attend college and law school, built a hugely successful legal practice, and blazed a new trail in data analytics and healthcare.
That drive continues today as he paves a new road, beating a different set of odds, going up against the largest primary payers and auto insurers in the country, to secure reimbursements for healthcare providers and millions of their patients.
