COTATI, CA – MARCH 12, 2018
Yuba bicycles is excited to introduce the latest addition to the electric cargo bike scene: The Electric Boda Boda. As the cargo bike industry grows, Yuba rounds out their robust collection with this new electric option in both step through and step-over frame designs.
Yuba’s Electric Boda Boda is a progression from the pedal powered Boda Boda bike. Thanks to high demand and increasing popularity, Yuba upgraded the Boda Boda with a Shimano STEPS motor with three pedal assist settings. The Shimano STEPS motor weighs in at 7lbs and has a maximum range of 93 miles per charge (landscape dependent, of course); cruise up or down without breaking a sweat.
The traditional-style rear cargo space has a capacity of 220lbs making this bike an easy solution for carrying the kiddos to/from school, pets, the weekly goods from the local farmers market and so much more. Two new and fun colors: Aqua and Sandstone.
Industry leading features such as fenders, wheelskirts, chain guards, and ultra bright LED lights are also included for a safe, smooth ride.
“We are excited to offer a more relaxed electric cargo bike option,” said Benjamin Sarrazin, Founder and CEO of Yuba. “The Boda Boda was already great for daily trips or weekend long tours along the bike path, but with the new electric motor, there’s nothing this bike can’t do.”
The Electric Boda Boda will retail for $3,399 and will be available March 12, 2018.
