2017 Electra Townie Go! 8i

Power when you need. Pedals when you don’t. Townie® Go! is a battery-powered, pedal assist bike that lets you ride like the wind without breaking a sweat. The ninja quiet Bosch Performance System offers four levels of power support from Eco to Turbo mode, allowing you to flatten hills and shorten commutes depending on how much leg work you’re willing to put in. Multi-gear functionality lets you control output and battery life. And of course, it looks as awesome as it rides.

The comfort of Townie’s Flat Foot Technology® frame combined a lower center of gravity and balloon tires, provides an upright and smooth ride that makes it impossible not to smile when riding a Townie Go!. So get on and Go! Pedal less. Do more.

    Comments:

    I am older and out of shape, but I hate stationary bikes. The Townie Go! is easier to mount and a snap to operate. I live in the country and riding miles at a time is a snap. It is also fun to ride around the campground.
