One of the SOLAR BIKE designs, the Asimov is the perfect fit for those wanting something a little different in an E-Bike. Its clean lines and unique tubing profiles are complimented by internal cable routing and minimal intrusion from the electric system.
It features an integrated SAMSUNG 11Ah battery coupled to a 250 Watt front drive mini motor that should provide a range of around 40 kilometres. Additionally, it is equipped with a pedal assistance system with 5 levels of power in addition to a throttle over-ride. This makes it flexible enough to accommodate many riding styles and applications. It is predominantly geared towards moderate to long distance commuting with reliable running gear, including Tektro Auriga hydraulic disc brakes and a Sturmey Archer 8 speed internal hub ensuring reliable performance more than up to the task of daily use in all conditions.
This bike is currently in store and ready for a test ride along with the rest of the Solar Bike range of complete bikes. It retails for $2400 but is currently on special for $2000, making it one of the most inexpensive ways to join the growing number of people who commute by E-bike!
