Volcon partnered with Revivial Cycles to build a one-off Grunt and they absolutely crushed it with their design.


In a quick glance, the custom Grunt looks nothing like its stock self, and a lot of the credit goes to its custom bodywork. The new body, designed by Ed Boyd, is built out of fiberglass and hides all the electrics inside it, which results in a squeaky clean look. Meanwhile, the vibrant livery (with three tones of blue) elevats the funky aesthetic, and the twin-pod old-school headlight serves the same purpose. You also get an aftermarket gauge just above the googly eyes.

The commendable work, though, has happened at the rear. Revival Cycles has chopped the subframe to create a sleek tail section that houses an alcantara saddle and an integrated LED. The seat partners up with a custom, lower handlebar and bespoke footrests for sportier ergonomics, even though the Grunt is anything but sporty. Similarly, the team swapped the OEM monoshock and swingarm with a blingy Ohlins KT 303 unit and an inverted swingarm, respectively.

As requested by Volvon, the performance remains unchanged. This custom Grunt continues to boast a 2kWh battery alongside a 25kW motor. This is good enough for a claimed range and top speed of 75 miles (with additional battery) and 40mph, respectively. Since this range isn’t game-changing, Volcon has equipped the Grunt with swappable batteries, but we don’t think that’ll be possible on this custom iteration. But hey, this is more of a fun build rather than a practical one, so we’re not complaining.
