The Electric Pedicab Rickshaw Bike is a 3 wheel bike made keeping the design of the old timeless tuk tuk. But our engineers have completely renewed the classic rickshaw and made many innovations. Among all, the powerful and silent electric motor stands out instead of the petrol one. We then note the solar panels on the roof that charge the LiFePO4 battery and guarantee practically unlimited autonomy. And last but not least the aluminum frame, Shimano shifter, disc brakes and Maxxis tires. In short, only the drawing remained of the old tuk tuk. So today lovers of retro style have their own pedicab, ecological and in step with the times.
Electric Pedicab Rickshaw Bike Uses and Users
The electric pedicab is an easy and very fun vehicle to ride both downtown and on the waterfront. For this reason, the rickshaw is becoming a form of urban transport in Europe and North America. In fact, getting around the city by rickshaw is highly appreciated by tourists. And taking tourists around on a pedicab is a very interesting and lucrative job. It is ideal for a boy or a girl who wants to set up on their own and start a new business. Because the rickshaw allows you to work outdoors, to have flexible hours and above all it doesn’t require huge investments. And in the months when there are no tourists, you can use the trike to deliver goods around the city.
This Electric Pedicab Rickshaw Bike is very versatile and has a large platform with a considerable load capacity. In fact the aluminum frame has allowed our designers to create a very beautiful, elegant and resistant tricycle. Nothing to do with the old steel vehicle that has been present in some cities for some years now. Because a beautifully designed rickshaw attracts the attention of all passers-by and attracts more customers.

The Evolution of the Rickshaw Bike
The first rickshaw appeared in the 19th century and was a two-wheeled cart pulled by a man carrying a passenger. And in a short time it has quickly become a very popular means of transport in most Asian cities. Over the years the hand-pulled rickshaw has been replaced by the pedal rickshaw, also called Pedicab. With the evolution of technology, the pedal rickshaw has been replaced by an electric tricycle with pedal assistance. And this innovation has made the Rickshaw the most popular means of transport for tourists to visit cities and seafronts.
So in many European cities we can see young entrepreneurs who take tourists around with their Electric Pedicab Rickshaw Bike. But not only. In fact, many young locals prefer to use the pedicab to get home after dinner instead of the classic taxi. And this phenomenon has also exploded in many American cities, especially in and around Miami.
