Karbon Kinetics, parent company of GoCycle has today announced the second generation model, dubbed the G2.
Landing with dealers in November, the €3,000 electric bike leverages KKL’s experience and investments in design, advanced materials and manufacturing technology, employing electronic shifting, an integrated dashboard, torque sensors for the pedals, lithium battery power and multiple user-driving modes.
According to Richard Thorpe, founder of KKL and designer of Gocycle, “The Gocycle G2 is a comprehensive improvement over our first-generation (G1) Gocycle. Customers will notice the user enhancements, lighter weight, increased performance and further design integration. G2R comes standard with electronic shifting, hydraulic brakes and KKL’s patent-pending seamless internal cable routing technology. Light weight remains a key attribute of Gocycle DNA—made possible with our breakthrough injection-moulded Magflow1 frame and wheel technology and lithium battery. We have also worked on improving the electric drive system in terms of smoothness, efficiency and reliability—without compromising on weight and compactness.”
