And sure, technically Catrike’s are e-trikes as a substitute of e-bikes, since they’ve a pair of entrance wheels and single rear wheel in a basic tadpole trike setup.

Within the case of Catrike’s eCAT e-bikes, the electrical recumbents have been gifted a Bosch e-bike drive unit consisting of a Bosch Active Line Plus electrical motor and a 400 Wh Bosch PowerPack battery. There’s additionally a Bosch Purion LCD show mounted on the left handlebar.
