Ubco Utility Bike

UBCO Utility Bike is a new rugged, off-road motorcycle developed by a group of New Zealanders that were trying to create an innovative product. Well, we think they did it, itīs an all-terrain bike that has 2 wheel traction, which will let you go virtually anywhere, itīs green, because itīs electric and you get low maintenance costs due to the fact of having less moving parts than regular bikes. Its range is also very reasonable, more than 100 km with a single charge of the 40 Ah Li-ion battery. UBCO was also concerned with the fact of it being able to carry around considerable weight, so you could use it as a work tool and not just for fun. In order to do just that they developed an X shaped frame that will bear up to 200 kg. Another interesting feature is that it can also offer electric power, it features power outlets and USB ports, this will may very well come in handy if you ever need to charge up your smartphone or use a power tool, how cool is that?
