The i-CiTY is a 26” wheel medium frame bike modelled after the classic European cruiser bikes. It is suitable for riders from approximately 157cm (5’2”). We offer this bike in 3 variants and two battery options:
i-CiTY Nexus 3 This is designed for the inexperienced rider who wants simplicity and comfort. The gears are internal so can be changed while stationery or under way. The motor is 200W allowing both throttle and Pedal activation control.
i-CiTY 7 This is a 250W version with rear wheel drive and derailleur gears. Being 250W you cannot legally have a throttle except a walking speed (6kph) throttle.

Features include an internal 8 speed Shimano Nexus gear hub allowing a fully enclosed chain and gear selection while the bike is stationary. It is a superb classic comfort bike and also has the traditional tool free head enabling handlebar height and position adjustment with a simple lever.
The i-TORQUE is the same bike as the i-CRUiSE except the power delivery is via a German manufactured torque sensor system. When you ride this bike you will feel like Superman/woman. It also delivers more kilometres per battery charge.
