A4000i has capability for 2 people driving. A4000i can also be used as a commercial motorcycle.
At the same time,A4000i is powered by original Terra Motors lithium battery.Battery endurance is about 50,000 km. This figure is five times longer than Chinese electric bikes in Asian market.
A4000i can go smoothly on a steep grade with a careful development of accelerating performance. The detail is written in the attached files.
Asian market takes up about 80% of the whole motorcycle market. In this market, high gasoline price and air pollution caused by gas emission have aroused need for electric scooter. As the result, in China, more than 30,000,000 units of electric bikes are sold each year.
However, Chinese electric bikes face battery life problems, maintenance problems, and part supply chain problems in addition to its product quality in Asian market. Therefore, these electric bikes are not able to compete with gasoline motorcycles produced by major Japanese manufacturers.
