Released at EUROBIKE on September 2, 2009, the “YikeBike” by the Kiwi design team is a radical electric bicycle that just weighs 9.8 kilograms and folds to 67×56×12 cm to fit in a backpack. Featuring a small powerful 1.2 kW electric motor and controller that replaces chain pedal, gear box, mechanical brake, cables or levers, the YikeBike is gonna be the first bicycle on the market with electronic anti-skid brakes. Looking like a mini version of a penny farthing (mini-farthing), the vehicle also integrates lights, indicators and brake lights on a hard carbon light platform, ensuring the safety as well ease of the ride.
