Karbon Kinetics have announced that they are working on a next generation model of their impressive GoCycle bicycle range.
Lightwieght and portable, the GoCycle has garnered many fans thanks to it’s one-button access to electric propulsion, giving riders an extra boost when they are tired or hitting a steep incline. Or just want to cheat in a race.
Karbon Kinetics founder and GoCycle designer Richard Thorpe has now revealed that a revamped version of the GoCycle, dubbed the G1.5, will hit streets in 2012, with a full G2 model released sometime in 2013.
Thorpe explained the importance of vehicles like the GoCycle, “By 2030, urban areas will be home to more than 60% of the projected world population of 8 billion people, putting tremendous pressure on the environment, as well as public infrastructure that is already struggling to meet the growing demand for transportation and basic services.
“This increasing pressure will drive a paradigm shift in city transportation, and a new breed of sustainable personal urban transportation will emerge. Our long-term vision is to be a leader in this market with Gocycle: cool, green electric transport for an affordable price.”
