• Hit the outdoors with your infant on the electrically-assisted Panasonic bikes

    A short while ago, we came across a double-seated bicycle integrating an electric-assist. Now, here’s a way to get around town an electrically-assisted bike, without having to leave your infant back home! These bikes by Panasonic Cycle Technology Co Ltd are designed to meet the Japanese standards for bicycles capable of carrying two infants. The two models, the “Gyutto” and “Gyutto Mini,” use child seats placed on the rotating shaft of the handle. If pedaling these bicycles gets too tedious, you can always look to the electric-assist to kick in and give you a hand with help from the on-board 8Ah lithium-ion rechargeable battery. The bikes can go up to about 36km per charge using the assist.

    Costing ¥132,000 ($1600), these bicycles by Panasonic are indeed a great replacement for a four-wheeler, particularly when out in the outdoors with an infant.
