In Dutch fashion, all LEKKER bikes can be self-maintained and are serviceable world-wide, due to the usage of premium industry standard modern components. With a LEKKER bike you can easily connect to thousands of bike service points worldwide.
Both the Amsterdam+ and Amsterdam GT have improved and integrated cable routing through the headset, giving the bike an even smoother and cleaner look, whilst ensuring they’re still easily accessible. And their easy-to-maintain philosophy doesn’t stop there. 2nd Generation models are outfitted with a weather-resistant, flexible, and durable Gates CDX carbon belt drive, as opposed to the classic clanking chain. The WTB tires provide the Amsterdam range with a comfortable and sportive ride in and outside of the city. LEKKER upgraded its braking components and now offers a stronger light, better illuminating night riding with high visibility, bringing you to your destination at lightspeed. The bikes have also received a 4.5 Customer-first Trust Pilot Rating.
The Amsterdam GT is up for city commuting and beyond: on comfortable off road explorations, taking any hill in its stride. And with a battery size of up to 630WH, you’ll be able to go the distance. It’s powerful, stylish, and sporty, with some seriously high specs for a smooth and seamless ride. Boasting both a Bafang M420 mid-drive motor with 80 Nm of torque and a stepless Enviolo rear hub. You can shift from a standstill, stop and go full steam without worries. The Enviolo hub delivers 310% gearing ratio to tackle climbs with gradients up to 25%; no sweat! The Amsterdam GT eBike comes with WTB Riddler 700 x 45c tyres, allowing easy city rides and longer dirt and gravel tours.
The lightweight Amsterdam+ eBike is the dressed-down, lightweight eBike with a powerful motor to match. Made for sleek city cruising, it has a super-efficient, ultra-durable H-Series Bafang rotation sensor motor weighing just 3kg with a rated power of 250W and a maximum torque of 32 Nm. It sits at the back, meaning better traction than front-wheel electric bikes. As with all LEKKER models, convenience is key with its removable battery taking you up to 85km on a single charge. Additionally, front and rear racks are optional, as well as STVZO-approved front and integrated rear lights. Robust and reliable tan-wall WTB Horizon 650B x 47 tyres give maximum traction and smooth riding beyond pavement roads.
LEKKER was an idea dreamed of by Meindert Wolfraad, a Dutch man who landed in Sydney, Australia, in 2008 with the aim of perfecting his English - he soon noticed a gap in the market when it came to getting from A-B. And in 2009, LEKKER Bikes was born. After years of learning and testing, LEKKER cracked the market with an innovative eBike range that fit the demanding Australian landscape paired with recognisable Dutch features and premium quality. Fast forward to today, LEKKER is the market leader in Australia, with brand stores in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Recently opened brand stores in Amsterdam and Berlin are part of their ambition to make tracks around the globe.
