Our company president has collaborated on the most remarkable development in recumbants since the category of bikes invented. Take a look at the operation and performance of this unique machine from the attached video and appreciate the inventiveness of the Kinetic designers.
You will get sterling feel and performance from this unique design. I think you can see that from the video. You will have to copy and past the URL for this video to view it present. Here is the URL. http://www.longabike.com/video.html
Note that this trike is a semi-production item for us and is not stocked in NZ stores yet. You will have to order one and have it built up to get into this performance machine. The electronic components and motor/wheels are stocked in our NZ parts centre, so you will be well supported in your riding pleasure.
Note that the Longabike comes standard with the 19 amp hour upgraded battery. Capacities up to 34 amp hours are available.
Also note that Longabike has developed a solar charging canopy shown in pictures(due to be purchasable soon).
Does the Longabike tick the boxes for you?
