The Meow has a lot of features that make it very unique among the traditional children's engine bikes and even among the e-bikes.
3 power modes
At first, start practicing slow mode about brisk walking. This mode is easy for riders who are familiar with kick bikes to keep their balance, and the speed is easy for moms and dads to follow. Even if you can't use the brakes well yet , it's a speed that you can stop with the foot brake just like a kick bike.
The sharp start that is unique to electric motorcycles is a no-no for first-time riders. Tailored to a soft start with a specially programmed controller.
Once you get used to it, gradually step up the power mode from Medium to Fast. Maximum speed, acceleration, and hill climbing power will be increased together with .
With an aluminum frame and a dedicated lithium battery, the body is about 1.5 times lighter than bicycles of similar size . The seat height is also designed to be lower than similar size bicycles .
For children riding motorcycles for the first time, weight and size lead to fear and anxiety. Being light and small is a big advantage both psychologically and physically . It will support you even if you get knocked down, and it will reduce the risk of injury when you fall and get caught .
Motor stop when falling
A 3-axis sensor cuts power to the motors as soon as it senses a fall.
As long as it is a motorcycle, it is inevitable that it will fall, but it reduces the possibility of an accident in which the rider or a friend is caught in the rear wheel when falling.
Also, when raising the car, there is no need to worry about running out of control even if the throttle is open. The motor is programmed not to restart until the throttle is fully closed.
Can be loaded on various cars
The car problem can be said to be the first hurdle in motorsports . I want my child to start riding a motorcycle, but it is difficult to prepare a vehicle for transporting the motorcycle.
The Yotsubamoto Meow is small and light , so even moms can easily load it into their car and use it as their usual practice spot. It doesn't leak fuel or oil , so you can lay it on its side or upside down. It can be loaded on various vehicles such as compact cars, SUVs, and light vehicles that were difficult to load motorcycles until now .
the motor is in the wheel
Layout the motor in the wheel of the rear wheel. Since there are no chains or sprockets, the risk of fingers or clothes getting caught is greatly reduced.
Also, the fact that the motor, which is the heaviest object, is close to the ground means that the center of gravity is low. It is more stable and easier to raise.
No chain adjustment or lubrication is required, and maintenance is easy.
small diameter throttle for children
The throttle is specially designed with a small diameter to suit small hands . It is a discerning part developed for Meow . The grip size for adults is around φ31.5mm, but I made it with φ26.5mm for children.
Like baseball bats, tennis rackets, and kendo shinai, these are sports tools, so it is very important that they fit your hand .
Also, the brake lever is size for children.
car wash ok
Electronic parts are laid out in the frame. The motor is also waterproof, so it can be used in car washes and puddles.
However, it is not completely waterproof, so avoid crossing rivers, submerging in water, washing the car upside down, or washing the car with a high-pressure washing machine.
Dedicated lithium battery
Built-in 24V4Ah dedicated lithium battery. When the battery level drops below 1/3, the indicator flashes like a certain hero's timer to let you know.
Charging using a household 100V power supply takes about two and a half hours.
Product comes with red and blue decals. Also available in green, orange, yellow, and light blue as options.

-Where to ride?-
Yotsubamoto Meow is legally a racing motorcycle, so it cannot be ridden on roads or parks .
Ride on private property or dedicated parks.
That said, you may not be familiar with a dedicated park . Please refer to the nationwide park list and go to a park near you. The park list will continue to grow in the future.
Currently, most of the parks are for motorcycles, but the number of parks in urban areas and indoors will increase, taking advantage of the characteristics of electric motorcycles, which do not emit exhaust gas or exhaust noise .
national park list
