Torqs are the continent crossers that you would love to take on the office commute !

Battery – LG hi-density Lithium Ion (EU Certified) *


Our 700 mm wheel Torq Alfine touring/commuting e-bikes are in stock for immediate free delivery to any NZ location. They are designed for world touring, and handle the tough NZ conditons. This has the same motor/battery combination that won the 2015 Sun Trip ebike 7000 kilometer race; beating the 2nd place Bosch system by two days!

Please note that the Torq is priced with Shimano Alfine brakes and Alfine internal rear hub. It also sports the 800 lumen Roxim headlight.
Torqs  have been ridden across  every continent (except Antarctica!) over their 12 years of product development. Torqs are the most suitable bike for touring in the world today.  A group of Torqs just crossed Australia with no support vehicle. They have gone hundreds of times across Europe, the Silk road, across Africa, America, Canada and NZ. No other electric bike has chewed up so many miles and earned more praise from the pundits.  Torqs have won the Tour de Prestigne electric bike race three times and were bike of the year in Cycle Magazine.

Torq Alfines also make excellent commuter bikes. With their Shimano Alfine 8 speed  internal hub and Alfine hydraulic brakes, they are premium components from name brand components. The headlight installed on the bike is our  800 lumen blaster that makes night riding really illuminating! Throttle override lets you zoom away starting uphill or across a street while five levels of pedal assist give you a precise riding experience.

Because the 700 mm wheel has a bigger diameter, the Torqs are faster on the flat than our other e-bikes. They have the grunt to climb hills, but they carry you without pedaling about 36 kph on the flat. that is a great combination of hill climbing grunt and speed. See for yourself at any of our retail shops.

We stock Torqs in red, black or green.

$70 of free set up time by a bike mechanic and free delivery are included with this bike price.

Note:Torqs are available NuVinci 380 hubs and/or titanium frame on special order.


5 reviews for Torq Alfine (by Kinetic eZee) Dual wheel drive touring/commuting perfection ;

  1. “I rode my Torq Alfine last year for 10,000 k’s and did not even have a tyre puncture with those great Marathon Plus tyres”

  2. 5 out of 5

    In all honesty I wouldn’t bother with anything but an eZee Kinetic on a trek like this. My bike went through some incredible abuse and had a thousand opportunities to breakdown and leave me in some compromising situations but it held up. Not a single flat tyre or blowout on any of the three bicycles, the motor was completely immersed in fresh and salt water on several creek crossings, the controllor and motor didn’t overheat on some incredible climbs, the brakes stopped me on the way back down. Maurice, (After completing 4100 kilometer, three person, on/off road crossing of Australia.)

  3. “I have ridden my ebike from your company for eight years now and it just now has needed a new part, and you had the part!”

  4. Hi Jace,

    I thought you might like to know that at the age of 82 I recently returned home after riding four of the North Island bike trails with friends from Golden Bay. These were the “Rimutaka Cycle Trail”, The “Te Ara Aki – Thermal By Bike”, “The Timber Trail” and the “Hauraki Rail Trail”. Lasts year we rode the “West Coast Wilderness Trail”.

    My e Zee Torq performed admirably and made the riding so much easier. The Timber Trail shuttle damaged my saddle and the beautiful green enamel, otherwise the 564 km we rode was trouble free.

    My Torq does over 250 km a week and has done well over 20,000km now and still going strong. What sort of mileage would you expect to get out of the bike? Just wondering if I should be planning a replacement at some point, or is it still good for another couple of years.
