But check out this bike spotted in Wellington by Finlay Macdonald. I’ve never seen anything like it. And that “3000 watt race mode” looks … interesting.
PS: It’s not actually vintage – that’s the name of the maker.
I rode one of those in Rotorua where the importer lives. It was a bit of fun and not actually as fast as you may think. Maybe 60kph.
What people don't seem to appreciate is that it is illegal to ride a 3000W unregistered bike almost anywhere. 'Road' is a very broadly defined term designed to protect the public from ridiculous contraptions.
Smartmotion finally seem to have recognised the value of the Pacer vs Catalyst. I am currently arranging to do a full Pacer test for electricbikesnz.com
