PLEASE NOTE – As of April 2017, this bike will be sold with the Shimano Steps Mid drive electric propulsion system installed as standard, this includes fully automatic Di2 gear shifting and the Alfine 8 speed hub gear unit. The battery is the Shimano 500Wh unit and can be mounted on a rear rack or in the frame. The automatic gears operate just like an automatic car, making it incredibly easy to ride – even for novices who have never used a bike with gears. The price has been adjusted accordingly to include the additional cost of this class leading motor system.
The Boxer Rocket Saturn, is the ultimate cargo bike. It isn’t really a bike or a vehicle, it more a work of art that you can take your kids to school in. With its rich ‘candy’ metallic paint options and real leather interior the Saturn will make it hard for its owner to stop looking at it.
Its reclining leather seats and interior panels release their rich ‘classic car’ aroma every time the rain cover is removed – a true pleasure. The seats recline to make a comfortable bed for two little ones, even with a raised pillow if you so desire.
In the drive department, the Rocket is fitted with the gorgeous, smooth and quiet Go Swiss Drive rear hub motor system. Unlike the standard Rockets’ motor, the Swiss unit has a internal talk sensor so that the minute you press the pedals power is delivered at just the rate you need it. Making it perfect for pulling off on hills and rapidly pulling out of junction.
