EUROBIKE 2016: Easy maintenance, diversity of choice, powerful motor, pedal assisted system, all in one design, wireless technology, easy installation. Interview with Snow Chen, CEO TUNG KENG ENTERPRISE CO., LTD., at the LEV Components Special Exhibition at EUROBIKE 2016.
DK City, founded in 1987, believes that city-dwellers everywhere dream of freely enjoying a life of health, fitness, happiness and rejuvenation.
At EUROBIKE 2016, ExtraEnergy interviewed Snow Chen, CEO TUNG KENG ENTERPRISE CO., LTD. at the LEV Components Special Exhibition. The interview was conducted by Angela Budde (editor, ExtraEnergy).
Angela: What components do you have here?
Snow: We are presenting our very unique electric bike system, the Hot Wheel, here at EUROBIKE 2016.
Angela: What makes your wheel special?
Snow: We integrate motor,controller and battery inside the front wheel. We are selling “simple” and “easy”. If you buy Hot Wheels , it is very easy to change the normal bicycles to an electric bike. You don’t need to buy additional electric bikes again.
Angela: Why is DK City presenting its components at the LEV Components Special Exhibition?
Snow: Because we are located in Taichung, we want to find worldwide distributors. We think, the LEV Components Special Exhibition will help us. Three years ago, we booked a both at the EUROBIKE. But this time, we did not have anough time to book. ExtraEnergy is a very professional organzition, so we decided to book the booth with ExtraEnergy. Within the LEV Components Special Exhibition, we made some appointments but also visited the manufacturers at their booths. Back in Taiwan, we will contact the customers again. I think most customers are interested in our system. But they must also test ride it to know how good it is. The test track at INTERMOT would be very interesting for us.
Advantages Hot Wheel
