Mind you – we still don’t know how the MetaCycle will hold up to the initial hype, and now the electric small-capacity scoot purportedly boasts, ‘a new style of rim that was not seen on previous production prototype bikes.’
“The new rims have updated spoke mounting points that appear to protrude from the rim, as can be seen in the delivery photo below.”
Bottom line, the apparent hot air of previous promises on delayed due dates is at an end; clients are to expect a price hike from the initial $5,000 to around $6,500, with the specs still showing a claimed top speed of 80 mph (130 km/h) and a maximum range of 80 miles (130 km) per charge.
Should this bike be what we think it to be, its lean build, portable frame, and light construction will likely put it in direct competition with the Chinese-built Niu RQI.
