Polaris® eBikes and MotoGB Announce U.K. Distribution Partnership of Hi-Tech Power-Assisted Bikes

STONELEIGH PARK, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Jan 16, 2015) - 2015 Motorcycle Trade Expo -- EVantage, Ltd, the exclusive, licensed worldwide developer and manufacturer of Polaris® electric bicycles, announce a partnership with MotoGB for distribution of Polaris® eBikes in the United Kingdom.

MotoGB will officially begin trading activities January 18 at the Motorcycle Trade Expo in Stoneleigh Park.

"We're incredibly pleased to be partnering with MotoGB for distribution in the UK," stated Austin Higdon, Polaris eBikes Managing Director. "MotoGB has a knowledgeable and passionate team, a perfect fit for the Polaris brand and our power sports customer base. MotoGB has been responsible for selling a significant proportion of motorcycles in the UK for more than 30 years. The combination of their strong dealer network and rapidly expanding portfolio of eBikes makes them a natural choice as a Polaris electric bicycle partner." 

Designed with a balanced hybrid sport frame for optimum weight distribution, Polaris eBikes are meant to go where the road ends and adventure begins. The 4" Kenda fat tires, in conjunction with the DuoDrive motor system, provide the ultimate stability and performance in all-terrain conditions. Once pedaling, the system quickly powers up to 25 km/h and provides a range of 80 km per charge.

Equipped with the new technology of Perpetual Arc Regeneration the rider can generate power to the battery while pedaling. Built from our original Arc Regeneration platform, we've enhanced the system by allowing the rider to regenerate power in four different ways. The new Gear Speed Technology brings life and responsiveness to the controls like never before.

MY2015 Line of Polaris® eBikes includes multiple biking options with commuter, MTB, and fat tire pedelecs. All MY2015 models come equipped with all new technology platforms, so each bike performs to high standards regardless of model selected. All models are compliant to EN15194 standards.
