2009 Kona Ute Electric Assist

Kona had the new and improved Ute on display at Interbike, and they even had a prototype electric-assist model in their booth. It now comes in two sizes to fit a broader range of riders, and includes much more substantial cargo bags.

    Awesome! Clever Chimp has been very slow to get the Stoke Monkey back in production, it’s nice to see some cargo bike assist competition.

    Nice color. If I am riding a bike on the street, I liike bright colors. All the drab green and dark colors aren’t real visible.

    The electric option is available! I’ve posted a review and video of the Electric Ute on my blog at http://mycargobike.net/2010/06/15/first-look-at-the-kona-electric-ute. Very interesting bike at an attractive price.
