There are a lot of electric bicycles (e-bikes) on the market today — from off-road adventure beasts to fat-tire bikes with folding frames. Some can’t even be legally ridden on streets. If you own a UBCO 2×2 e-bike, you know what we’re talking about, but here’s some good news: the new UBCO 2×2 utility e-bike solves that problem.

UBCO 2×2 Utility Electric Bike Is Now Legal

The New Zealand e-bike company UBCO, which makes “utility electric vehicles” (UEV), finally has a road-legal 2×2 utility e-bike. Previously only licensed for off-road use, the 2×2 utility e-bike is ready to roll. Of course, check to see if your state and city allow for e-bikes on roads and/or sidewalks. New York state and New York City differ on the use of e-bikes. Hopefully, the success of e-bikes will force an overall legalization of e-bikes across the country.

Back to the new UBCO 2×2 utility e-bike, the e-bike is hailed as a dual-environment vehicle. This means it’s good for on-road use and off-road use. The company upgraded the e-bike with brake lights, indicators, reflectors, a speedometer, an odometer, and a LED headlight with a high and low beam for street use. It now also includes a motor cut-off switch, a steering lock system, and a Bluetooth app.img src="https://c1cleantechnicacom-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/files/2018/01/Screen-Shot-2018-01-11-at-4.19.11-PM-270x270.png" alt="UBCO 2x2 Utility Electric Bike" width="270" height="270" srcset="https://c1cleantechnicacom-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/files/2018/01/Screen-Shot-2018-01-11-at-4.19.11-PM-270x270.png 270w, https://c1cleantechnicacom-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/files/2018/01/Screen-Shot-2018-01-11-at-4.19.11-PM-150x150.png 150w, https://c1cleantechnicacom-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/files/2018/01/Screen-Shot-2018-01-11-at-4.19.11-PM-570x571.png 570w, https://c1cleantechnicacom-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/files/2018/01/Screen-Shot-2018-01-11-at-4.19.11-PM-50x50.png 50w, https://c1cleantechnicacom-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/files/2018/01/Screen-Shot-2018-01-11-at-4.19.11-PM-186x186.png 186w, https://c1cleantechnicacom-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/files/2018/01/Screen-Shot-2018-01-11-at-4.19.11-PM.png 596w" sizes="(max-width: 270px) 100vw, 270px"">UBCO 2x2 Utility Electric Bike

The e-bike uses a 52.2Ah (48Ah rated), 50V, removable UBCO lithium-ion battery pack that can be used to power tools or simply charge your phone. The e-bike has two USB chargers (1A & 2.5A) and one 12V outlet (10A max).

It also has two electric motors, one in the front and one in the back. And to get you to tackle almost any environment you throw at it, it sports two powerful 1 kilowatt peak brushless DC Flux Drive electric motors (2.4 kWh peak) that are air cooled. It sports two high power density controllers with overheating protection.

Its top speed is 50 km/h (31 mph) and it weighs 63 kg (almost 139 lb). Its estimated range is 120 km (74.5 miles).

The price is $6,999, which means you can now take your surfboard to the beach with it.

Nicolas was born and raised in the world of classic cars of the 1920s. It wasn’t until he drove an AC Propulsion eBox and finally a Tesla Roadster that the light went on. Eager to spread the news of that full torque, he started writing in 2007 for various CleanTech outlets. Since then, his passion led to cover renewable energy, test drives, podcasts, shoot pictures, and film for various international outlets both in print and online. Nicolas offers an in-depth look at the e-mobility world through interviews and the many contacts he has forged in those industries.

Today he focuses most of his writing effort on CleanTechnica, a global online outlet that covers the world of electric vehicles and renewable energy.

His favorite tagline is: “There are more solutions than obstacles.”
