KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- APT MotoVox Group, Inc. (OTC BB: MTVX) announced the launch of MOTOPED®, which debuted last December in a breakaway Kickstarter campaign that quickly went viral and then sold out. A re-tooled brand identity, (http://www.motoped.com) officially launches today to our social media fans (https://www.facebook.com/motopeds) and current customers, that will offer access to an initial production run of 500 MOTOPED Pro units available for sale through the website.
With no formal announcement, the company pre-sold through nearly 25 percent of its initial Pro model inventory during a soft launch over the weekend. Customers can expect delivery in time for Christmas.
"Sales results from the first 72 hours certainly exceeded our expectations," said Troy A. Covey, president of APT MotoVox Group. "With the AIM Expo opening in Orlando, Florida next week, the company may have to hold some units aside to ensure sufficient inventory for the most important trade show in our industry in North America."
MOTOPEDS (available in Cruzer, Pro and Survival models) are innovative hybrids that fuse the unique elements of a bicycle, a motorcycle and a moped into a radical new riding experience. Product photos are available at http://www.motoped-choose-your-adventure.com/press-images/. MOTOPEDS utilize a patented jackshaft pedal drive system and various lightweight, low-displacement engine packages in order to yield a 125-pound bike that achieves between 130 and 150 miles per gallon as a commuter. But that's just the business end.
Wayne Patterson, CEO of APT MotoVox Group, added, "MOTOPED has quickly grown to be one of the top-selling motor-assisted bicycles in the world. It causes people to take a completely fresh look at the way they approach two-wheeled transportation -- whether that's a bike to get to and from work or school, or for a variety of new recreational purposes. MOTOPED has achieved cult-like status in record time."
APT MotoVox Group, Inc. indicates that MOTOPEDS will soon be widely distributed through MotoVox's rapidly growing U.S. and International dealer and retailer networks, in addition to the new online store.
