Smart Design, Smartmotion.
SmartMotion's story begins in New Zealand, where a long haired visionary saw the opportunity for electric bikes to change the transport landscape for his beautiful country. Joined soon by a bicycle mad designer, and manufacturing guru, Smartmotion International was born.
With a focus on innovation, performance and affordability the proud New Zealand design team continues to evolve this clean transport technology, changing the lives of everyday people around the globe.
