16-inch wheels
Make the vehicle taller and more important and provide a greater urban riding comfort.

Reverse motion
Low speed reverse motion is available and operated by a switch on the handlebar.

Battery recharging during braking
The system allows power generation while braking. In particular, during urban rides, it is possible to save up to 15% of energy.

Regenerative braking system
It is possible to use a fully electronic braking system. An efficient recovery system of kinetic energy can recharge batteries while slowing down. A switch on the handlebar can activate this system.
