The Kinetic factory made these up at a special price for us. This price cannot be repeated.
The Vente has the Dutch heritage and relaxed, upright riding position that is so popular in urban centres around the world and popular with the ‘Frocks on Bikes’ group here in NZ. It goes faster than the Euro ebikes, however with the same race winning , but very controllable motor found in our other ebikes.
With the Vente, you are not reaching or bending to get transport. Super cushy Velo seat with step-thru frame affords ease of mounting or exit while the motor and internal gearing makes the transit super easy. The Vente delivers big on reliable name-brand components that assure reliable and swift transportation, but in a package that fits the life-style commuting needs of many around the world. Our sturdy basket fits this perfectly.
With the Nexus Shimano internal rear gearing, the chain cannot fall off, practically never needs adjustment, and has very long periods between lubrication. The Vente’s 700 mm wheels with front wheel motor-drive roll over road imperfections easily yet is controllable and precise in steering. The grunty 200 rpm hi-torque motor, with planetary gearing, climbs like a goat. Please see our article on why front wheel drive ebikes are the pic of NZ Councils, NZ Post and most other technical buyers. This is the same V3 Kinetic motor (by eZee Kinetic) that won the 7000 km Sun Trip race in 2015, beating all the German brands by two full days! it has the racehorse pedigree, but is tame for your riding pleasure.
The Vente sports the same Sony hi-cap battery series as used on our Raptor and E-rex models. It also comes as standard with the high speed charger, making even quick charges add to the assisted range.
We expect great things from the Vente, our newest addition to the line geared to the urban commuter. This is a classy and fun bike to ride, and that will propel you to new levels of two wheel enthusiasm. We also expect that it will tick the boxes for group use from offices and institutions. It makes a great rental ebike as well.
Note that the Vente Classic now comes with a Shimano front disc brake and the Shimano roller disc brake in the rear, quite an upgrade from the pictures shown here.
