About this project
YikeBike has evolved . . . the fully electric folding bike that remains undiscovered by most of the world is now even better. It's time for you to discover your Urban Freedom.
YikeBike has listened to its early adopter customers and created the next evolution of the YikeBike. Our user testing and market validation is complete and we need this kickstart to get penetration in our key markets.
We have forged new territory when it comes to personal transport, offering the most compact fully electric bike available. The revolutionary folding and compact drive train offers a unique value proposition.
This Kickstarter gives us the market validation for the many product improvements and the resources to identify and secure the best resale partners.
The model V is constructed of hydrofromed aluminium and composite reinforced polymer. The model V comes with both the 2 and 3 wheel configurations and these can be simply swapped over with the single screw and tools that are supplied - providing instant satisfaction as well as building the riders confidence. (the 3 wheel configuration is only available on the model V)
Recommended Retail Price USD$4995 (excluding govt taxes and duty)
The model C is our prestigious premium product. Meticulous material preparation and finishing delivers the ultimate in bragging rights. High-tech carbon-fiber construction materials and hand finishing means there are only a few model C’s available to the discerning buyer.
The model C is the lightest and most rigid YikeBike we can offer, with carbon fiber - Frame, Rear Leg, Front Wheel and Handlebar assembly. We are using the latest Panasonic Lithium Ion batteries offering a range of 20km and regenerative braking.
Recommended Retail Price USD$7995 (excluding govt taxes and duty)
To help you personalise your YikeBike we have developed a graphic skin that is applied to both sides of the front wheel, further enhancing your bike and enabling you to 'pimp-my-yike'. This graphic has an adhesive layer that can be easily removed or upgraded at any time. After we are over the $250,000 we will print and fit your personal design at the New Zealand factory.
We are ambitious, and we want to reward our community with something that will really make your YikeBike stand out in the crowd. With your support and backing we will make sure the world see’s you as the leader in personal transport.
We will airfreight your new YikeBike directly to you under the standard shipping terms DAP (Delivered at Place). All costs to get the YikeBike to you will be covered by us except for any VAT, customs duties and import taxes. If there are any charges owing, a local customs representative will contact to arrange payment. Once this payment has been received, the YikeBike will be released and delivered to your specified address.
It is your personal responsibility to check that the use of the YikeBike conforms with the laws and regulations I your country. We have been working with government bodies to ensure the YikeBike can join the cyclists and road users, we are leading the way in making light weight, fully electric vehicles commonplace in every city.
There are important regulations with respect to the transportation of items containing Lithium Batteries. You will need to observe these when you own a YikeBike. The reason the freight is included in the pledge price so that you can leverage on our express freight experience to ensure that your delivery gets to you (anywhere in the world) within 7 days of dispatch. We will keep you informed of the delivery process and location of your YikeBike at all times.

Risks and challenges
Kickstarter is a fantastic way to reward the early adopters with the latest iteration of the YikeBike. This is our preliminary production offered at a price that will not be available in the future.
The marketing and partner development of the YikeBike is critical to our success, we are continuing to identify key resale partners that reflect our value proposition and provide the optimal customer relationship.
This is a kickstart to 2015, to prove our capabilities and systems that we have in place for scaling our business.
