ROBRADY design and DK City have signed an agreement to partner together to design, develop and manufacture an exciting new line of innovative folding electric bicycles. The first in a series of concept bicycles will be debuted by DK City at the 2009 Eurobike show in September to a select group of customers. The show is taking place in Friedrichshafen, Germany and is revered as the world's most important trade fair in the bicycle market. According to plans, the teams are working diligently toward a global, public unveiling of the bike series later in the fourth quarter of 2009.

DK City sought out ROBRADY design after seeing their award-winning work on the eco-friendly electric Vectrix VX-1 Maxi Scooter and Super Bike, as well as their work with designing many products for Segway. Initiating the relationship, Ed Benjamin of Benjamin Consulting coordinated the introduction in Taiwan where negotiations began in February of this year and were brought to fruition last week. Hans Huang, President of DK City, sees great potential in the relationship: "With ROBRADY's fantastic design ability and our production capability as well as our established sales network, success is just around the corner". There is great excitement at ROBRADY design as well. ROBRADY's CEO / Design Director Robert Brady feels that the two companies are "very complimentary" and that the partnership will yield many profitable products: "ROBRADY will continue to strive in positioning DK City as a source for highly desired market-leading transportation products".
