The Yadea Innovator also has some interesting features such as a 350W Torque Tronic mid-drive motor, hydraulic brakes, and an easily removable battery.

As if Lectric eBikes didn’t have a full plate from all their e-bike launches last year they launched another folder to start out 2023. This time an electric folding 3-wheeled XP Trike. They state this trike is a result of an outpour of thousands of consumer requests seeking a third-wheel option. We don’t doubt it given the huge success of the three wheel motorcycle category.
