UBCO started with the vision of creating a durable, all-wheel-drive electric utility bike. Since then, we've transformed into a comprehensive electric vehicle (EV) ecosystem. By harnessing the latest in electric motor and battery innovations, our offerings now span both on and off-road vehicles, a range of accessories, and subscription-based software services.

At UBCO, they're driven by the desire to empower your missions, whether they involve embarking on adventures that inspire, discovering the wonders of our world, preserving our natural parks, or accomplishing work tasks. We're here to fuel your ambition


The Utility Bike Company (UBCO) was born on a ranch in the heart of New Zealand's countryside in 2014, thanks to the vision of Daryl Neal and Anthony Clyde. Their goal was to design the ultimate off-road electric bikes, capable of handling New Zealand's challenging landscapes.

Over the past nearly ten years, UBCO bikes have found a diverse audience, from hunters and daily commuters to pizza delivery services, including Domino’s. In 2017, the company expanded its operations by opening a second headquarters in Eugene, Oregon, and its product line has evolved from a single bike model to four distinct offerings.

The lineup starts with the Work Bike, followed by the Adventure Bike, the Hunt Edition, and the top-of-the-line Special Edition Bike.

These bikes have a weight range of 111 to 116 pounds without their batteries. Adding the battery increases their weight by 40 pounds, bringing them to a total of 151 to 156 pounds. While they are on the heavier side, comparable to other electric motorcycles in the market, their weight means that transporting them using a standard bike rack, with or without the battery, is not an option.
