For many riders, there is a desire for a compromise between the compactness of a bike and the versatility of a car. The Ubco two-wheel drive electric motorbike may well be that bridge. Sporting a trim design capable of holding up to 200kg (441 lbs.), the ride allows one to carry the cargo like a car while avoiding the urban struggle of finding a parking space. And with a top speed of 45 km/h (28 mph), it stands to be a more convenient ride than a traditional bicycle for the daily commuter. Its 40 Ah lithium-Ion batter can recharge in just four hours, with a range of 100-150 km (62.1-93.2 miles) depending on the route’s elevation changes. This makes it ideal for riding around a city, or taking it off-roading, thanks also to its advanced suspension system and ability to tackle gradients as high as 30 percent. To add to the convenience of transporting cargo, the bike comes with two racks that can be customized to hold almost any tool one can think of. The main console also boasts a 12 V outlet and USB port, so you can charge your devices and tools on the go. With a stripped down design of just a battery, two motors, two disc brakes, suspension and wheels on a lightweight aluminum alloy frame, Ubco makes maintaining the bike simple and affordable. So whether one needs a better ride around town or a workhorse for outdoor excursions, the Ubco 2×2 is up to the challenge.
