Offers Test Driving Experiences Throughout South Florida 


Global yacht brand expands lifestyle collection to include revolutionary, award-winning electric bicycle VanDutch is launching the newest addition to its deluxe lifestyle collection—Karbon Kinetics Limited’s Gocycle G2, the ultimate high-tech, electric two-wheeler, which received at its August 2012 inauguration the EUROBIKE Award honoring innovation across the bicycle industry.


Designed beautifully by former McLaren industrial designer Richard Thorpe, the leading-edge Gocycle G2’s micro-sized, yet powerful motor allows for smooth, fast, emission-free rides; lightweight Lithium EmpowerPack battery offers an incredible range of up to 40 miles; integrated dashboard display on the handlebar includes speed indicator, gear selection and battery state; compactable design simplifies transport and storage; seat-post and frame, combined with height and reach adjustable handlebars, provide superior comfort. The design also uses Thixomolding, an environmentally friendly process that gives the bicycle its strong, ultra-lightweight magnesium frame and wheels without producing the ozone-depleting sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) emissions.


Gocycle G2—which delivers a seamless, minimalist design like the VanDutch yachts—is free of cables, chains and gears. Frame color options include rich black, sleek white and gunmetal grey; interchangeable PitstopWheel tires come in black, including limited-edition brilliant and matte finishes.


VanDutch offers complimentary Gocycle G2 test drives at various locations throughout South Florida. To request a test trial or order a Gocycle G2 www.vandutch.com/centers/usa-ft-lauderdale/.
