Easy Riding with an Electric Cargo Trike

As popularity surrounding electric powered transport continues to grow, manufacturers are looking for more ways to apply this concept. Japanese electronic bike company, Daga, has produced the Stroke Cargo Trike. At only 1.9m long with a tread of less than 50cm, the Stroke has a minimal footprint and is no wider than the handlebars of a conventional bicycle.

Unlike many other cargo bikes with attached storage baskets located at the front or rear, the Stroke places its cargo area in the middle of the frame thereby making it more stable as the cargo’s weight increases. As an added bonus, the trunk can be fully detached for easy transportability (especially handy for bike couriers). A tilting mechanism built into the frame allows the trike to lean into turns like standard two wheeled bikes. With increased maneuverability, this cargo trike allows for a pleasurable and efficient riding experience.

Daga is currently still in the prototype phase and looking for partners for large scale manufacturing. Hopefully when these hit the market, price points remain low for easier accessibility to the public. We know we want one!

    You can see a lot more photos of the Stroke Cargo Trike on the stroke-design.com blog. It’s now mostly in Japanese but we will be updating future posts with an English summary.

    The 1.9m length and 50cm tread keep the Trike compact and ideal for Japan, but also keep it within the legal definition of a pedal-powered vehicle in Japan.
