Gocycle is from U.K.-based Karbon Kinetics and is the brainchild of former McLaren Cars engineer Richard Thorpe (above). Boaters found the G2 model (about $4,000) at the recent Fort Lauderdale and Miami boat shows, which the company used to enter the overall U.S. market. So far, owners of motoryachts 55 feet and up are proving the most interested.

The three major features of this bike that have caught our attention.

 1. Three color options: The Gocycle comes in “so white” (above), gunmetal gray and stealth black. Maximum rider weight, including bags, is 250 pounds.


2. Fast folding: With practice, most users can fold or unfold the Gocycle in about five minutes.

3. Add the app: The Gocycle Connect app lets riders program driving modes for a gentle ride or a serious workout. The app also tracks the battery-charge status via smartphone.
