Radkutsche Rapid Electric Cargo Bike
Hand built German cargo bike with eZee electric motor from factory – the most robust electric cargo bike you can get your hands on!
The Radkutsche Rapid is a collaboration between Radkutsche in Germany and eZee bike. Radkutsche produces hand built cargo bikes for the logistics (parcel delivery etc) market in Europe. eZee bike is the perfect match for heavy duty cargo carriers, with their robust, long lasting, high torque and highly efficient hub motors. The most important thing for a logistics e-bike is low maintenance and serviceability.
The Rapid is the 2-wheeled ‘long john’ or ‘bakfiets’ model of the Radkustche offering. It is longer than most box bikes out there, making it a good candidate for logistics and deliveries and also a unique offering in the family market, as it can seat 4 kids (with purchase of an additional bench). Please note that the spec differs in different markets. The belt drive version is not available in New Zealand or Australia.
Included in the price is a rain cover and 1 bench seat with 2 seat belts and a rain cover. All items are high quality and functional. However, they are not in the same league of detail as found on family-oriented bikes such as the Riese and Muller Load 75 or the Gazelle Cabby, as Radkutsche is founded in logistics – low maintenance, easily maintained designs is their forte. If that sounds like you, then with its tough motor and timeless frame, this will be your favourite family cargo bike on the market.
The Radkutsche Rapid was awarded international cargo bike of the year for 2019!
