Shimano MTB's Instagram page posted a photo series
of what is undeniably an unreleased eMTB from Evil Bikes. A bike check was published in Shimano's 'Further' magazine reveals that the frame boasts 166mm of rear wheel travel using Evil's Delta System suspension design, like the rest of their bikes, and uses a 170mm fork. Shimano's EP8 motor runs off of a 630 Wh battery and stats are visible from the SC-EM800-display.
The carbon bike looks like it has been built up with dual 29" wheels, but that doesn't rule out mixed wheel possibilities. There's also plenty of room in the front triangle for a water bottle too.
The full story where these photos first appeared can be found here in Shimano's Further magazine
that is available online and promotes adventures and advocacy trail with e-MTBs. Titled Homecoming Horsepower
, the words play on the e-MTB riding experience, written by Shimano ambassador Elladee Brown about rediscovering trails in the Selkirk region of Southeastern B.C. where she grew up.
We've reached out to Evil Bikes for further information about a new bike, but no, there won't be a review coming tomorrow.

Look at all these rumors surrounding me every day
I just need some time, some time to get away
From all these rumors, I can't take it no more
My best friend said there's one out now about me and the girl next door
*well thought out and presented advertisement
For once I believe you.
Can you add a motor and battery? YES.
But hey... Why let that get in the way of a tired argument that people learned to recite from internet trolls?
