Footballer Max Kruse becomes shareholder of eRockit
Kruse's investment in the e-motorcycle start-up is not his first. How much he has invested, however, remains a secret for now.
Max Kruse, professional footballer at Union Berlin, becomes a shareholder in eRockit Systems. The start-up produces motorcycles that are electrically and pedal-powered. The battery lasts up to 120 kilometers and the motorcycle is supposed to drive up to 89 km/h fast. Interested parties currently have to pay 12,000 euros for the two-wheeler.
The 32-year-old footballer Kruse is himself also a fan of the fast e-motorcycles. "I have never felt the interaction between man, machine and driving dynamics as impressively as with the eRockit," says Kruse. "When I pedaled for the first time, I experienced the enormous power and the incredible acceleration. It feels like you can fly. It's a brilliant bike."
The start-up from Hennigsdorf in Brandenburg did not disclose how much Kruse has invested. But it's not his first investment. Kruse already runs his own racing team. In 2018, the soccer player founded the "Max Kruse Racing Team."
