Front-Wheel Drive

  • August 23, 2011

The motor and battery pack of this electric bicycle are built into the front wheel, and no control cables are needed because a wireless system throttles motor speed and applies a set of regenerative brakes. Top speed is 32 kilometers per hour, and the bike has a range of 20 to 40 kilometers, depending on how much pedaling the rider does.
