Vespas and mopeds are cool … except for the gas-guzzling engine, the insurance, registration, helmets, the fact that you can’t park on the sidewalk or chain them to trees. The list goes on. But it stops with the FlyKly.
NY-based startup FlyKly is bringing Vespa style to the electric bicycle with its fleet of two-wheelers that don’t need a drop of gas. Ever. No gas, no gas-smelling hands, no greasy legs, no waiting on line for the petrol. The FlyKly runs on electricity – 40 miles per charge and 1,000 miles for $1. It’s like having an unlimited MetroCard in your pocket and a Gypsy cab at your beck and call.
The FlyKly fleet is designed in Japan and legal as a bicycle in the United States. That means you can zip along the sidewalk and the street, the bike lane or the board walk (where they allow bikes, of course). The battery is hidden under the FlyKly seat so when you need to charge, simply remove and plug into the wall. Check out the video to learn more.
Come joy ride the FlyKly at BIG POP UP. Located at 19 Kenmare + Elizabeth in Nolita, BIG POP UP is open daily from noon to 10 pm through July, and the FlyKly team will give you the details and the keys. Come on down!
