Smike: Turbo

A quick-change artist: in the basic version it is a beautiful tour bike – with the side wagon it is a taxi bike or a hauling wagon.Rating 2008: Very goodPrice: 3,076 EUR

The Smike Turbo is a totally new bike category. Now you can pick up your guest from the train station. The Smike can lean into the curve like a bike - just watch out with the width. The Smike is still narrow enough to find a place on the bike path. Heavy or bulky loads are easily secured on the side wagon‘s floor with fixing-eyelets. The tests were taken with a 75kg load, the test results should be read accordingly. There is no rider assistance factor given here because the side wagon sets this bike in a unique category. The range without the sidecar is around 35km on the every day stretch.

+ With Smike options are provided which were before
   not possible with a bike
+ Simple transition between tour bike and bike with side    wagon


-  Pretty heavy – on hills without the electric motor,    movement is difficult
-  Riding with the side wagon requires some getting
   used to
