MotoTec Electric Trike 500W



The MotoTec 500W Electric Trike is the middle brother of the basket carrying MotoTec Trike range.  It’s a three-wheeler, but that doesn’t mean it’s for the elderly or infirm.  Remember when the Segway was all the rage?  Well, the MotoTec 500W Personal Transporter is just like that but at a fraction of the price!  Just stay away from cliff edges!

The upgraded 500 watt motor and 48 volt battery will get you cruising at 22 mph without losing any range.  You can still get 20-25 miles out of a single charge.

Super-easy to ride, it has a twist throttle on the right handlebar and a brake lever on the left, so just like riding a bike really.  Twist the throttle to go, release and then pull the brake to slow down and stop.  And the small 4th wheel located between the rear wheels provides additional stability.

The basket on the front makes this e-trike suitable for commuting, grocery shopping and general errands.  But these personal transporters are also great for work.  Particularly if your job involves the requirement to cover large areas quickly as with security for warehouses, gated communities, parking lots, golf courses, parks etc.

Looking for an electric trike with a bit more or less grunt?  Then check out the 350W, 800W and 1200W MotoTec trikes.

The MotoTec 500W electric trike AKA the Personal Transporter is a three-wheel electric scooter that you can ride while sitting or standing.  The front basket, which comes as standard, allows you to transport goods like groceries or safely stow a bag without affecting your balance.  This means that’s it very safe and convenient for use at all kinds of events and for all kinds of uses: on the warehouse floor, building security, movie lots.  It can even be used just for fun!

It’s like a three wheel Segway but at a fraction of the price! The 500 watt motor is located in the front wheel hub and will take you to wherever you want to go at 22 mph. It’s powerful enough to get you up a 10° incline and can take you 20+ miles on a single full charge.

The MotoTec personal transporter is ultra-easy-to-operate with a twist throttle and left handle front drum brake system.
