Richard Thorpe

From his background as an industrial engineer working for motor racing giant McLaren, Richard Thorpe was inspired to develop an electric bike that was in tune with an F1 design and build. The inspiration lead Thorpe to found his own company Karbon Kinetics in 2002, which then produced and launched the first Gocycle in 2009. There have been four iterations of the electric bike since then, all based on his futuristic design. The bikes are also environmentally sustainable, which earns even them even more points.
