    You will be able to place an order for will-call pickup at our assembly plant in Irvine, CA. When your Ryvid Anthem is ready for pickup, it will be your responsibility to hire and coordinate with your selected shipper for international export. When choosing this option, please keep a couple of things in mind:

    1. Please make sure your selected shipper can receive the bike on your behalf.
    2. We cannot prevent you from transporting the bike where you wish via your selected shipper. As such, we cannot guarantee that the bike is compliant with your local government, nor can we provide in-person field service.

  • Can the Ryvid Anthem be operated internationally?

    Currently, the Anthem is street-legal in the USA. However, we are working on obtaining approvals to deliver and operate in various countries around the world. Customers wishing to ride on public roads outside of the USA should seek the necessary approvals of their local governments.

  • Yes, it is DOT (Department of Transportation) compliant, has a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), and it will be the owner's responsibility to register it with their local motor vehicle agency upon delivery.

  • Do I need a license and insurance to ride in the USA?

    Yes, riders will need to have a motorcycle license and be properly insured.

  • Does the Ryvid Anthem come with a warranty?

    - Limited lifetime warranty on the frame.
    - 1 year standard motorcycle warranty.

    - 2 year power pack (battery) warranty.

  • Will modifications and non-Anthem service void my warranty?

    Aesthetic/functional modifications like handguards and fairings are welcomed. Service and repairs from a non-Anthem service center are welcomed. Swapping out seats, tires, and turn signals for a different brand are welcomed.

    None of the above void your warranty, unless modifications were applied or used incorrectly, and they specifically damaged the affected part of the bike. We will release step-by-step instructions and video support for self-service and select customization, so you can feel empowered to tinker with your Ryvid Anthem without worrying about the warranty.

  • How will service and repairs be handled?

    For basic service Ryvid will provide interactive step-by-step instructions and video support when deliveries begin in 2023. In the unlikely event that you do have an issue outside of these usage and self-service guides, a member of our field-service technical team will be available to assist.

  • Where can I purchase parts for repair and replacement?

    Original Ryvid parts will be available individually from our parts department. However, we can provide part specifications if you would like to explore third-party options because we designed the Ryvid Anthem to be flexible to your needs.

  • Will an owner's manual be provided?

    A physical owner's manual will be provided with the Ryvid Anthem. In case your hard copy is missing or lost, we will have a digital version via our website or customer help center. We're committed to helping you spend less time troubleshooting and more time riding.

  • How do I turn the bike on?

    The on/off switch is activated by the presence of the key fob.

  • Is there a way to secure the battery to the bike?

    Yes, the battery can be locked to the bike with the provided key.

  • Does the Ryvid Anthem come with anti-theft features?

    The Ryvid Anthem will come with a remote key fob that turns on your bike and arms the included anti-theft feature with an alarm. If armed, the Anthem will respond with a loud alarm if touched. This will also disable the ability to use the start button, so it's not going anywhere.

  • Can two passengers ride?

    Yes, the seat can accommodate two riders and has a recommended max load of 400 lbs.

  • Is there a minimum or maximum height for riders?

    The Ryvid Anthem is designed to accommodate a wide range of riders with different heights and statures. It comes with an electrically actuated seat height that can be easily adjusted from 30 to 34 inches above the ground, giving you the power to get comfortable.

  • What storage options does the Ryvid Anthem have?

    The Ryvid Anthem will come with a small storage/phone charging compartment, which can be access from the top of the “tank.” This space can also be used for small items and comes with an internal high-speed USB charging port. The USB can also be extended out of the compartment if you would prefer to charge your phone on a handlebar phone mount.

    The Anthem is equipped with pre-installed locations on the frame for you to mount your own custom accessories. We will also be releasing side and rear storage accessories as we approach delivery in 2023.

  • How do I charge the battery?

    The 4.3 kWh battery can be charged on the bike or removed and charged separately. 110 V or 220 V power supply can be used. An external charger is provided with the bike.

  • How long does it take to charge the battery?

    220 V supply – 3 hours
    110 V supply – 6 hours

  • Can the Ryvid Anthem be charged at L2 charging stations?

    The Ryvid Anthem will come with an external charger that can be plugged into a 110V or 220V power source, with 110V being typical for standard U.S. household outlets. This charger is compatible with aftermarket J-plug adapters to extend your charging options.

  • How much does it cost to charge the battery?

    At a cost of $0.25/kWh, it costs just over one dollar for a full charge.

  • How do you remove the battery and what are the wheels on the bottom for?

    The battery on the Ryvid Anthem can be removed without being lifted vertically upwards. To remove, start by unlocking the latch to rotate the casing downward. Then disconnect the cables attached to the chassis, lift the battery off the bracket and gently lower it onto the ground. Finally, with the wheels attached to the bottom, roll it away in a similar fashion to your typical travel luggage.

  • How much does the battery weigh?

    The battery weighs approximately 65 lbs.

  • Will additional batteries be available for purchase?

    Purchasing options, pricing, and specs for additional batteries will be announced closer to delivery in 2023.

  • Can the Ryvid Anthem be operated in the rain?

    Yes! The Ryvid Anthem will be water resistant with an IPX6 rating, which allows it to resist high-pressure, heavy sprays of water.

  • What are the details of the Ryvid Anthem's final drive ratio?

    The Ryvid Anthem Launch Edition will come with a factory-installed 4.7:1 final drive ratio with an optional 3.6:1 ratio available for purchase from our accessory store at 10% off after delivery. This allows us to streamline our manufacturing process to get your Anthem Launch Edition to you as quickly as possible.

    The Ryvid Anthem can be configured prior to signing your purchase agreement to either the 4.7:1 or 3.6:1 ratio.

    If you find yourself spending most of your time riding on city streets, then the 4.7:1 ratio may be for you. It provides more grin-inducing low-end acceleration with a slightly lower top-end but can still get to highway speeds of 70 mph.

    If top-end highway speed is what you’re looking for, then the 3.6:1 ratio may be for you. It is optimized for mixed use on city streets and highways with higher top speed of 75+ mph and less low-end torque.

    We are aiming to make it as easy as possible for you to swap from one gear ratio to another, including detailed do-it-yourself support videos and tutorials to guide you through the process should you choose to want to change after purchase.
