Kleuster saw this as an opportunity to promote its electric bicycles targeting towns and historical areas, where there are several limitations to the use of motor vehicles.
But the electric bicycles from Kleuster are not only for food and drink, the company created a variety of offer which will certainly attract a whole host of innovative entrepreneurs and Government agencies concerned with the welfare of its citizens and the sustainability of their cities.
These electric bicycles meet beautifully the functions of any motor vehicle of small dimensions and as such there are versions adapted to the maintenance of green spaces for gardening, urban or other deliveries and, in our perspective the most daring and functional bet, urban waste collection.
Bicycles intended for waste collection were created thinking both to save the historical areas of the cities of gases released by existing motorized options as well as on the streets of narrow areas, typically the electric bikes meet perfectly these functions and have the added value of being slender and can circulate more freely in narrow streets with tight turns.
The bicycles are designed for humans with a height of 1,50 and 1,90 m and with a rating that allows its use on tracks intended for public vehicles, bicycle paths and pedestrian areas where it is not allowed the movement of motor vehicles – which in practice has always with the exception of the use of motor vehicles for collecting waste (municipal waste lorries dockable to discharge) and maintenance of green spaces with the risks that such causes for pedestrians that circulate in these areas, usually a major density of tourists. We must point out that, since this is a bicycle – although its electric auxiliary engine – the use of same does not require a licence or even the registration of the vehicle.
Since the vehicles were designed for the noble areas of the cities, whether to attract customers in the sales of food options or to cause the least possible impact on tourist areas, there was a special care with its design, modern and elegant with a retro touch fit perfectly to any urban environment. Depending on the geographical conditions a battery charge is capable of one day of work and recharging takes less than 3 hours.
These bikes include additional security features, such as the inclusion of front and rear hydraulic brakes normally used in high-competition bikes, a sensor that detects when the operator is in place, a sensor that activates the brake automatically when the vehicle is parked, extremely useful functionality in the options of door-to-door selling of food and drink. It also includes an emergency stop button, hydraulic suspension, a platform that gives it a stability far superior to mere bike with trailer, and all the lighting consists of LED lamps, for an additional savings and innovation.
Kleuster develops, conceives and produces extremely attractive vehicles, equipped with cutting-edge technology and works by going against existing environmental concerns. Whether it's a first-business option for the peddling of hamburgers, ice cream, puppies or other gourmet products, for an urban fleet of delivery services, waste collection or gardening, we are certain of its popularity in the short or medium term.
