The YikeBike is coming to a street near you.
New Zealander, Grant Ryan, is the creator of the smallest and lightest electric folding bicycle in the World – YikeBike. Spotted on Auckland’s streets, the YikeBike is set to take the World by storm and has already won New Zealand’s top design prize (Purple Pin) and scored a place on Time Magazine’s list of 50 best inventions of 2011. The finished product weighs just under 11kg and runs up to 10km on a single charge (using about 8 cents worth of electricity).
The retail price is approximately NZ$ 5 000.00 and can be stacked under your desk, put into the back of a car, taken on a bus and/or train. There is already a waiting list of well-known names that include royalty, movie stars, politicians and design museums so if you want one it is best that you get your name on the list as soon as possible. We recommend that the Auckland Council look at using the Yikebike as a form of public transport. Yikes ! now that that will be fabulous.
