Unleashing Electric Elegance: Sosa Metalworks' Stunning Ryvid Anthem Transformation

Unleashing Electric Elegance: Sosa Metalworks' Stunning Ryvid Anthem Transformation

California meets Vegas and a captivating collaboration is now taking the electric motorcycle world by storm. Ryvid teamed up with the legendary custom bike builder, Cristian Sosa of Sosa Metalworks, to create a mind-blowing interpretation of the Ryvid Anthem. If you didn’t see The Sosa Anthem build at its first reveal at This year’s 15th annual One Motorcycle Show, now’s your chance. 

Cristian, known for his mastery in traditional metal fabrication, took on the challenge of his first-ever battery-powered motorcycle, and the results are nothing short of mesmerizing. The Ryvid Anthem, with its unique height-adjustable seat, already boasted a striking design, but in Cristian's capable hands, it has been transformed into a true work of art.  

Cristian's approach to this project was to imagine how a classic machine would look in the future. He recognized the Anthem's inherently modern design and knew he had to take a different approach, focusing on the folded steel frame and removable battery pack as the starting points. 

Opting for aluminum over steel, Cristian leveraged the material's lighter weight and sleeker aesthetic to enhance the Anthem's performance and visual appeal. The challenge of working with aluminum, which requires welding on both sides, did not deter Cristian, as he is known for his mastery of even the most demanding materials.  

The entire build process, which included the design phase, took a mere three weeks to complete. Cristian's expertise in hand-shaping and the integration of his fast-cut CNC table allowed him to create a truly one-of-a-kind masterpiece. The hand-polished aluminum finish gives the bike a stunning, yet subtly soulful appearance, perfectly capturing Cristian's vision.

The collaboration between Ryvid and Sosa Metalworks has resulted in a creation that defies expectations and pushes the boundaries of electric motorcycle design. This stunning interpretation of the Ryvid Anthem is a testament to the power of innovation, creativity, and the relentless pursuit of perfection. 

Prepare to be captivated by the electric elegance of the Sosa Metalworks Ryvid Anthem, a true showcase of what happens when industry leaders join forces to redefine the future of two-wheeled transportation.
