For over 12 years, Richard Thorpe, former McLaren designer launched its first GoCycle. Launched by Karbon Kinetics Limited company, here comes the fourth generation built with lightweight materials used for a race car, this designed e-Bike.
Promoted as the "two-wheeled electric bike dream", this last one has frame improvements such as, monocoque chassis aka carbon fiber skeleton that connects the hydroformed aluminum from a frame with the injection-molded magnesium drive section. It weighs no more than 37 pounds (17 kg) and can be folded neatly in the car's trunk in less than 10 seconds. Now, that's cool!
Nicknamed G4 houses a new electric motor and rated at least a 40 miles (64 km) range and has two folding options - can be carried as a separated cubicle in a travel bag or wheeled along like a stroller. The e-bike is offered in G4i and G4i+ model versions. All the disclosed information about the lithium-ion battery is that it can be fully charged in 3 to 3.5 hours.
The tires were inspired by the MotoGP motorcycles and improved with silica compound to provide a better grip. Meanwhile, the cockpit is inspired by the powerful Formula1 cars, the gear shifts and DRLs were inspired by other modern cars. There's a USB charging port on the handlebars and Low Energy Bluetooth (BLE) connectivity.
Additional accessories for this G4 include mudguards, lights, and a pannier rack. The G4i+ will be launched as an exclusive limited with optional colors and a lightweight carbon fiber wheel. Prices for this G4 fourth-generation GoCycle bounce between $3,999 and $5,999.
