Do you remember YikeBike from New Zealand? Once a concept debuted a year ago, it’s finally available in the US, for a very reasonable price of $3,595. The YikeBike, foldable electric bike, is made out of carbon fiber, and features one of the most unique designs for any kind of piece of equipment for transportation that we’ve ever seen. The mini-farthing folding electric bike weighs in at 10.8 kg (22 lbs) and enjoys a speed of 23 km/hr (14.3 m/hr) with a range of 10 km (6.2 miles). With a bit of practice, the folding process takes less than 15 seconds. The folded dimensions are 150mm by 600mm by 600mm and the total folded volume is 43 liters.
It may not be a long distance, but hopefully it’s enough to get you where your’e going. The super-light electric folding bike takes around 20 minutes for an 80 percent charge. A full charge takes 40 minutes. The YikeBike comes with one charger, one charger cord, a carrying strap and a toolkit with tire inflation adapter and allen keys. [YikeBike]
