The Shorty is a tough commute bike. With the electric assist and comfortable continuously variable transmission it moves your stuff from A to B in no time. In a green way, that is. Because unlike a scooter, the Shorty emits no CO2 or other polluting particles and is noiseless.

And, before we forget it, its Dutch design gives it a pretty cool look!


Apart from the usual benefits of the electric bicycle the Shorty also has a variety of business advantages, such as a low inventory write-down, economical price per kilometre and attractive lease rates. Compared to a normal bicycle it also has a significantly larger geographical range.

Another advantage is that despite its speed you don’t need a scooter driver’s license. There’s even more; the Shorty has a striking urban appearance, which makes it an ideal advertising medium. You can easily decorate the boxes with your ads or visual identity.


The Shorty is the greenest choice in its category. Since it doesn’t emit any CO2 or other polluting particles it has the smallest possible carbon footprint. This doesn’t just improve the quality of the air we breathe, but it also improves the image of your company.

There’s another reason why the Shorty is environmentally friendly; it makes no sound.


The Shorty is extremely comfortable. With its electric assist, you are always riding downwind. And with its continuously variable transmission by NuVinci, changing gear goes very smoothly and without having to think about it.

Manoeuvring the Shorty is very easy thanks to the lightweight frame and low centre of gravitation. Its wide tires also give the bicycle the right suspension when you are riding up or down a kerb. Fast and comfortable, that’s what the Shorty is. Like an arrow; at your destination before you know it!
