At about half of the size and weight of other electric bicycles and many regular bicycles, the YikeBike Fusion is the perfect vehicle for urban and suburban use, especially for commuters. Similar to the original, the YikeBike Fusion travels at a maximum speed of 14 miles per hour, with a distance of up to six miles between charges, or up to eighteen miles with the optional extended batteries.
The YikeBike can be folded or unfolded in about 15 seconds, and is light and portable enough to be carried onto a bus, train or elevator, or stored in the trunk of a car or under a desk. Its portability also means that consumers need never to worry about the storing, securing, or possible theft or vandalism of their YikeBike – as they would with a regular bicycle.
It is also incredibly fun yet safe to ride. Its side- and rear-mounted LED lights are always on for greater visibility – especially at night. Its 20-inch front wheel can easily handle bumps, potholes and similar road obstructions, and its anti-skid, regenerative brakes provide faster and safer stopping capabilities. The YikeBike’s innovative frame design and slower top speed make it safer to ride than an ordinary bike, and its ergonomic, upward seating and handlebar configuration makes it more comfortable to ride as well.
For the environmentally conscious, the YikeBike emits zero carbon emissions, and its use actually helps reduce the carbon emissions normally generated by other motor vehicles for shorter trips. The YikeBike fully recharges in about 40 min, and at a cost of approximately five cents per charge.
