Sanyo CY-SPG226 Battery-Assists Your Lazy Butt For Up To 85km
Apr 28, 2009 17:01
Sanyo's Eneloop label, known for Wii charging stations and batteries, is taking cycling for a spin with the CY-SPG226 battery-assisted bicycle. Don't let the 85km range fool you though—there's still pedaling to be done.
The impressive range is accomplished, Sanyo says, by a battery that recharges itself on downhill stretches or when the cyclist brakes.
There's also that big honkin' basket on the front, capable of carrying more than 20 pounds (perfect for a chance encounter with an animatronic alien), but that has little to do with the batteries. Sadly, there is no little bell to ring when you arrive with a delivery.
The bike is, unsurprisingly, being marketed to courier and maintenance companies for about $1,300 (Japan only). That may sound expensive to some, but if you really hate pedaling or doing more work than is absolutely necessary, like I do, it might not be so bad. [CrunchGear]
