Yuba and Currie team up on electric cargo bike to be launched at Sea Otter
Yuba Bicycles and Currie Technologies have teamed up to launch a new model of electric cargo bike named ‘Spicy Curry’.
According to the statement of Benjamin Sarrazin, the founder and owner of Yuba Bicycles, the bike would be a smart transportation solution for families, tradesmen, entrepreneurs and small business owners who want to ride more, drive less, live healthier and lower their carbon footprint. The model will be ready for delivery in early June, retailing for $4,500. It will be sold through both Currie and Yuba dealers.
Highlights of the bike are:
- The bike includes an extra-strong rear rack allowing users to carry children, groceries, tools, packages or any large object that normally requires a car.
- The bike uses Currie’s Centerdrive TranzX M15, an integrated mid-drive 350-watt electric motor paired with their 48-volt, 8.8 Amp-hour battery.
- The bike also has hydraulic disc brakes and LED lights.
The Spicy Curry also includes a low-rider cargo rack and a 20-inch rear wheel that lowers its center of gravity. Read full story here.by
