World debut for the Vienna Bike Prototype - It folds, It leans, it's narrow, It's electrically-assisted

What if trikes were fast and agile and foldable

The Vienna Bike is the first foldable, electrically-assisted tricycle that rides with the feeling of a two-wheeler through its innovative steering and unique suspension system. It can carry a child-seat or expandable cargo box bigger than the trunk of some small cars. The trike's extremely narrow width makes it very agile on the roads and cycle lanes and easy to store. The Vienna Bike is now looking for investors and more details can be provided by the designer Valentin Vodev at info [at] cycleeco [dot] com

The Vienna Bike will have its first ever public showing at this year's Bridgestone Eco-Rally. The Vienna Bike is an electrically assisted tricycle that rides with the feeling of a two-wheeler through its innovative steering and unique suspension system.

The custom Vienna Bike cargo boxes can load up to 150 litres or around 40 kg of shopping goods - more than the trunk of some small cars! The loading platform features a quick release fixing for easy securings and switching loads. A specially designed children╩╝s seat can also be mounted for powered-up rides with the child.

The bike is extremely narrow for a tricycle (only 35 cm between the back wheels) so that it can be stored like any other bicycles. It also has a unique folding system for easy transport. With a single charge, the Vienna Bike can accomplish a distance of up to 60 km when assisted by pedalling and reach a speed of up to 22 km/h. It uses a normal 230/ 110 V plug and the total charging time is 3 hours. Materials: aluminium, steel, plastic, fabric.
