Does Gocycle drive without pedaling as a moped?
Basically yes, however, the bike has to move the rider in his own power to the speed of about 10km / h, in other words, the bike can not sit, "push the button" and leave. In order for the wheel to behave as a "moped", the pedaling duty must be turned off by the application of the wheel. There is no need to pedal the bike (when it is started), the slider must only hold the accelerator button pressed down on the left handle (it is for reasons of frustration to disconnect the engine if it falls). However, the wheel cycle mode described above does not comply with European legislation on the operation of bicycles and should not be used on public roads. I also point out that in this mode (when the rider does not help to drive with his own pedaling and the movement leaves the wheel completely on the bike) there is a significant shortening of the run, which can be for example only 10 km, even less (depending on the weight of the rider, the terrain profile etc.) .
How fast does this ecologist help?
Engine assistance is limited to 25 km / h in all 3 pre-programmed modes (City / Eco / On Demand). However, in custom mode (which can be re-set using the smartphone or tablet application), support can be increased up to 40km / h. Again, this setting is not in line with European legislation on the operation of bicycles and should not be used on public roads. Higher speed suicide is again a significant shortening of the race.
Is the power of the engine? Is it aggressive enough - sporty?
The engine power is quite sufficient to run the wheel like an electric motor, that is, a wheel with electric motor assistance. It's still a bike, not a moped or a motorbike. The bike was not designed for aggressive riding but as a means of transport especially for urban cycling, commuting, leisure activities,
What is the torque of the engine?
The manufacturer does not. It is sufficient for the purpose for which the bike was designed, ie city cycling and riding on a hardened surface. This ecol (or any other) is not a motorcycle.
Is it possible to increase engine support over 25 km / h chip?
Prepare is not possible. Support can be upgraded to 32km / h via Smartphone app's customization mode.
