Fort Worth TX – January 19, 2022 – Tucker Powersports today announced a dramatic expansion of its industry-leading ePower product portfolio with the addition of new Fantic e-bikes, UBCO utility e-bikes, skateboards Evolve electric casters, additional models of e-scooters from Dualtron, Speedway and underwater scooters from Jet Pilot. The company’s electric vehicle and accessories offering launched in early 2021 and has been widely accepted by forward-thinking retailers across the United States.
Tucker is adding three additional e-bike models from Italian manufacturer Fantic to its existing line of Fantic bikes. New additions include mountain bikes, a commuter e-bike as well as the revolutionary Issimo, a stepper e-bike that has won design awards across Europe. The Issimo has big 20-inch tires, a mid-engine, and front suspension.
UBCO offers a line of utility e-bikes with two-wheel drive and built-in components that make the bikes suitable for everything from work and hunting and outdoors to commuting and family trips. All UBCO bikes have built-in technology that allows live bike updates via a smartphone app.
Tucker’s line of electric skateboards adds seven new high-end boards from Evolve, including their Carbon GTR, Bamboo GTR and Stoke series. Each series features a dramatic look and both GTR series include both off-road and street models.
The ultimate accessory for a diver or snorkeler is an underwater scooter and this season Tucker is adding three models to its ePower and Water portfolios. The Yamaha Explorer, Yamaha Sea Wing II and Yamaha RDS250 are licensed products manufactured by Jet Pilot. Sea scooters provide greater access for customers who love life above and below water.
Plus, Tucker is adding additional electric scooters from its current suppliers, Dualtron and Speedway.
Tucker recognizes that adding a dealership of e-bikes and scooters to their business does not come without questions, training and operational changes, which is why the company has also launched a series of trainings specifically designed to help dealers add ePower items to their business operations. The training program will help employees understand the products and work with customers who may be new to the dealership and to ePower products. The training is part of a redesigned Tucker University, an online portal available to all Tucker dealers who are field staff.
“Electrical products are part of our future and deserve a place alongside a dealership’s current product offering,” said Jamie Kempinski, director of business development for Tucker. “Our growing line of ePower products, online training tools and field sales team make us a great partner for dealers preparing for an electric future.”
