A heavy weight bike can make a rider feel scared and unsure when turning or on hills. Light weight design provides a more secure feeling and instills confidence to ride, enjoy the experience and to try different things. Easy to support, pickup and less injury when the occasional fall does happen.
This bike does not have uncontrollable excessive power, suspension( lets face it suspension on kids bikes are stiff as and never really work), excessive weight but Yotsuba Moto12 is super light weight, compact, easy handling design and is just pure silent fun.
We developed a super light weight aluminum frame that has built in easily replaced Lithium-ion batteries and controller for this bike, as a “first bike” for kids. No need to spend in excess of $2300.00 for your kids first motorbike. The Yotsuba Moto12 is a high quality Japanese designed kids E Bike
The motor stops automatically when bike has leant past a certainly angle. Power for the electric motor will be cut when tilted over by a 3-axis sensor
Little crashes and accidents are part of motorcycle riding, so cutting power to the motor is critical and will reduce the severity of the accident and will prevent both rider and other persons from being injured. After picking up the bike, the rider has to completely close the throttle to reset the controller. This ensures that the bike will not react to the throttle being accidentally opened whilst the bike is being picked up.
Both the throttle grip (diameter is 19.1 mm) and brake lever have been specially designed for kids small hands. Control levers are thinner sizes than standard levers for ease of control with small hands.
This bike is designed for the rider to ride slow, at walking speed or faster. It all depends on the skill and confidence of the rider.
Sudden starts is an enemy for beginner kid riders. Specially programmed speed controller provides smooth starts.
You can select 3 different maximum speeds, from 6km/h : to 18km/h : 11mph with mo de selector switch. (Meow 16 can get maximum speed of up to 21km/h :13mph. )
It is difficult to achieve balance on the bike with slow speed, 6km/h : 3.7kmph speed is the same as fast waking speed of parents.
This speed make it easy for parents to follow the bike, great speed for kids to gain balance on the bike.
Even kids who can not use hand brake, can stop by the kid’s foot brake.
Built in hub motor – New motorcycle design!!!
This bike does not have a chain or sprockets, it uses built in hub motor on the rear wheel. This reduces pinching your finger or foot with the chain or sprockets. Not only for safety, but the heavy motor is close to ground to provide lower center of gravity and for riders to easily pick up this bike. Riders will have confidence to ride this bike even after falling down especially if they can pick this bike up by themselves.
Special lithium ion battery
Equipped with a powerful 24V 4.0 Ah lithium ion battery. When battery power is less than 1/3, an indicator light will flash. Kids can ride this bike from 0.5 hour up to 2 hours on a full charge. Charging port is located under the frame and takes 2.5 hours to fully charge the battery.
Note: Battery run time is a variable and will vary with weight of rider, how and where the bike is ridden and condition of the battery. Spare replacement batteries will be available shortly and will be quite cheap and easily swapped.
