Join the Ride

Established in 2010, Team FONZ design, build, sell and ride electrifying two wheel machines for the future of mobility. Multi-Award Winning Automotive Product Designers. 3 on-market models. Over 6 million on-road electrified kilometres. And that’s just the beginning.

Who we are

Our Story
The FONZ dream began in 2010, and since launching our first models in 2014, we have developed distinctive designs and ground breaking technology powered by our passion.

FONZ bikes have covered over 6 million electrified kilometres over Australian roads and we have designed and built the world's fastest production short wheelbase moto.  

We believe in effortless style, high performance and emission-free riding.

We build state-of-the-art zero emission bikes using innovation, efficiency and intuitive design. They’re built to be fully customisable, but most importantly, make a positive impact in reducing the world’s carbon footprint.

Sustainability and Values
We strive to create a more sustainable world and work closely with industry to champion the transition to sustainable transport. We work with and support not-for-profits and organisations aligned with our values such as WWF, Conservation Council, Sustainable Salons, 1 Million Women and AEVA (Australian Electric Vehicle Assoc).


We practice ethical waste management to ensure waste material is diverted from landfills to recycling plants. This includes disassembling components to recycle rare earth materials (e.g. copper wiring from electric motors). FONZ Powerpacks are disassembled and battery cells are donated to be utilised in second life applications. FONZ minimises usage of packing material and reuses supplier packing material to protect during freight and extend usage.

We aim for transparency and believe as a company we can be a positive force for change to build respect and dignity within our team and community.

We are privileged to be headquartered within Redfern, a culturally rich and diverse place with strong community ties.

The Gadigal People of the Eora Nation are the traditional custodians of the land on which we are now located. We pay our respects to Indigenous Elders, past, present and emerging and dream of a shared future together.
