WorkCycles Kr8 V8 Special Edition


The Kr8 V8 is our 2-wheeled e-bakfiets. With or without the motor it’s a pleasure to ride thanks to its efficient cycling ergonomics and sweet steering geometry.

The Kr8 V8 is first and foremost a bicycle, not an electric scooter with pedals. Nonetheless the Pendix mid motor makes light work of riding with several kids, against the wind, or further than you’d enjoy pedaling all that stuff.

In April we ran three great deals which are extending through May: we offer the SE package including almost everything you need to start riding effortlessly and in style with the kids; this package is the handiest, most economical combination of options we’d choose for our own families.

Your Kr8 V8 will be a lovely dark bordeaux red with orange rims and have dual 300Wh batteries. Two smaller batteries costs more than the standard 500Wh unit but is handier in daily use. You’ve got more range and can ride with one battery while the other charges. The smaller batteries are also much lighter to carry around. Further we’ve outfitted this bike with low maintenance Nexus Premium 8sp hub, rollerbrakes, our new rear carry handle, black box cover and canopy, Ventisit floor mat and a couple other little extras.

Normally this would all set you back €5115,- but in May, for you, it costs just €4699,- including VAT.!

Please note that we cannot ship our electric assist bikes overseas.
