Safety is a key feature in the design of Nikitin Electric Bikes and this is ensured by the superior performance of the Tektro MD-M300 Aries mechanical braking system.
The rust free aluminum frame has been engineered to a maximum payload capacity of 125kgs; this includes a removable rear rack.
The range of the bike is dependent on the size of battery selected. Generally the 13Ah unit has an approximate range up to 55kms. By comparison the 15.6Ah has an approximate range up to 65kms. With the 17.4Ah battery, expect an approximate range up to 80km.
The maximum on road cruising speed is 25kph, whilst the thumb throttle is set to 6kph. There is an option to increase the cruising speed (off-road activities) to 30kph or to adjust the thumb throttle speed to 20kph.
