when the charge cycle is complete.
CHARGING IN
PROGRESS
CHARGE
CHARGE
COMPLETE
The battery does not have to be completely discharged before it is recharged.
The Lithium battery has no "memory" and therefore can be charged at any time.
It is perfectly acceptable to recharge the battery after a short ride so that the
battery is fully charged before the next ride.
If your BATRIBIKE is not in use for an extended period it is
imperative that you charge the battery before storage and then
charge the battery once a month to prevent deterioration.
When not in use, store the battery in a warm, dry place.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW
THIS PROCEDURE WILL
INVALIDATE YOUR
BATTERY WARRANTY
If Lithium batteries are left flat for an
extended period then they may no
longer be functional and a new
replacement will be required.
With correct User Care as outlined above your battery should have a lifetime of
around 1000 charges.
Usage
Your BATRIBIKE Electric Tricycle can be used as a normal pedal
tricycle by simply not switching on the battery.
ELECTRIC TRICYCLE FUNCTIONS

If the power is left on for an extended period and the trike is not
used, then the power will automatically be turned off.
Pedal Assistance
ASSIST
There are 3 levels of pedal assistance from the
motor. Using the ASSIST button you can select from
L (Low) M (Medium) and H (High).
Pressing the button will scroll through the levels. Pressing the
ASSIST button when in H (High) mode will return to L (Low) assist.
The motor will then be activated upon pedalling. There is a rotation
sensor located near the crank which senses when the pedals are
being used.
The speed and power will vary as the level is changed. Refer to the
table below
PEDAL ASSISTANCE FROM THE MOTOR

ASSIST
Provides maximum power when negotiating
hills and head winds.
Great when needing to simply get from A to B
as fast as possible.
Range Not Tested
Normal Use Mode.
This is the level to use for everyday cycling.
Gives good performance whilst maximising
usable range per charge.
Best for everyday use.
Range Not Tested
Use this lower power level when negotiating
busy cycle paths and crowded areas. Also use
when setting off and gradually increase through
the levels for a smoother performance.
Ideal for negotiating obstacles.
ASSIST
LOW
EXAMPLE OF USAGE
* Please remember that the above values are provided as a guide. Due to manufacturing tolerances
the speeds and distances may vary.
Weather and terrain will affect the performance. In hilly areas or when the trike is heavily loaded
there will be a significant increase in the power used from the battery and hence the range will
decrease accordingly. A lightly loaded trike will achieve higher performance levels.
(These results were obtained by test riders in optimal conditions - 75kg rider, level ground, no wind).

No Assistance - Normal Pedal Tricycle
If you plug in the battery but do not press the power button on the
display your Batribike Trike will now act and feel like a normal
tricycle. This is useful when you are feeling fit at the start of a
journey or using your trike for exercise purposes. Power is still only
a button press away.
Using the Throttle - Country Specific
The throttle is available all the time the power is switched on at the
handlebar display.
The throttle can be used whilst pedalling in any of the assist modes
to give extra help as required.
The throttle is not limited by the assistance level selected and is
available to give up to maximum power at all times.
Use the throttle control gently. A small push will apply a small
amount of power. Pushing more will increase the power until the
control is fully rotated when full motor power will be applied.
Throttle assistance can also be used without pedalling.
A handy way of using the throttle is to pull away from junctions, or
when starting on inclines as the rider will pull away easier and is
less likely to wobble. It can also be useful when used to pull out
and overtake slower cyclists smoothly and quickly.
Care should be taken not to operate the throttle when mounting/
dismounting the tricycle. It is good practice to turn off the power
before getting off or on the trike, also to hold one or both of the
brakes to maintain stability. Holding the brake cuts the power to the
throttle and will stop the trike moving if the throttle is accidentally
operated.
It is not advisable to operate the throttle and then release the brake
as this will cause a power surge which may cause damage to the
tricycle and/or risk of personal injury.
Using the throttle at maximum level at all times will use more
battery power than when using it with discretion.
PLEASE NOTE:
The throttle control is not activated for some countries due to legal
restrictions. Please refer to your dealer for help and advice.
12

BS EN15194 Compliance
The BATRIBIKE Trike conforms to BS EN15194.
For the British market, the addition of a throttle control has
rendered this not compliant in some countries.
●
You are recommended to seek advice from the relevant
authorities in the country you are visiting before travelling.
STANDARD TRICYCLE FUNCTIONS
Gears—3 Speed Nexus Hub
Gear number 1 is low and makes it easier to pedal (for hills and rough terrain).
Gear number 3 is high and helps you to go faster (for use on level ground).
To change gear use the selector mounted
on the left handlebar. Twist the inner
portion of the handlebar grip to change up
or down through the gears. The gear
number is displayed in a small window as
shown above.
Braking
To stop, release the throttle and pull the brake levers.
Parking Brake
The Trike 20 is fitted with parking brakes. This allows
the rider to leave the Trike with confidence, knowing
that it will not roll away.
To operate the parking brake, pull the brake lever
towards the handlebar and click the small parking
brake lever into position. This will retain the brake
lever close to the handlebars and keep the brake on.
Both brake levers have the parking brake facility.
Parking Brake OFF
To release, squeeze the brake lever and the small
parking brake lever will click back to the released
position for normal riding.
Note:-
It is recommended to use the parking brake
facility on both brakes when parking the Trike.
It is recommended to leave the parking brakes
off when storing the Trike.
14
Parking Brake ON
15
Tilting Mechanism
The Batribike Trike is fitted with a tilting mechanism which aids the rider to corner
more easily. Using the tilting facility also allows for greater stability when
cornering, reducing the risk of lifting a rear wheel.
The lever to release the tilt lock is located on
the handlebars
To release the tilt lock pull the lever towards
you. To lock the tilting mechanism push the
lever in the opposite direction, (away from
the rider).
If the lever is stiff to pull, gently rock the
handlebars from side to side.
It is recommended that the tilt is released after getting on the Trike and that it is
locked before getting off.
Lights
Lights are provided on your BATRIBIKE Tricycle. These are power efficient
LED units which achieve a long life on each set of batteries.
SAFETY FEATURE - The power for the
front and rear lights is kept separate from the
main power supply so that in the event that
the battery is exhausted you will still have
lights for safety.
The front light is powered by 3 AAA size batteries
and is switched on by the black push button switch
at the rear of the unit.
To replace the batteries simply twist the lens anti-clockwise and pull free.
There is a small warning light on top of the front lamp unit. This lights to show
that the batteries are getting low and should be replaced.
The rear light requires 2 AA batteries. You will require a small Philips
screwdriver to take off the red lens for battery replacement. It is switched on and
off by the small red push button switch on the underside of the unit.

17
Tyre Pressures
The tyres should be pumped up to within the range stated on the sidewall.
This should be regularly checked as running with the correct pressures
will ensure maximum range from the battery.
Seat Height Adjustment
Rotate the locking bar (located below the
seat) anti clockwise to release the seat post.
The seat height can then be adjusted. Rotate
the locking bar clockwise to secure the seat
post.
Adjusting the Handlebars
The handlebars can be adjusted for height
and angle to suit the rider. Hex keys, (not
supplied), will be required to carry out these adjustments.
Note the marking on the seat post and handlebars that indicates the
minimum insertion. Do not use the Trike with the markings showing.
Carrying Capacity
The Batribike Trikes are fitted with useful load carrying baskets front and
rear. Please note the maximum load for the rear basket is 40kg and the
maximum combined weight for Rider and load is 130kg.
All other operation of your BATRIBIKE Electric Trike is
as per a normal pedal cycle.
MAINTAINANCE SCHEDULE
Maintaining your tricycle ensures you’ll get the most out of every ride and out of
the entire life of your BATRIBIKE electric trike. How much of your trike’s
maintenance you can do yourself will depend on your knowledge, skill,
experience and whether you have the necessary tools for the job.
Beyond this manual, it is good to consult your BATRIBIKE dealer for advice if
you are at all unsure about any of the procedures described. Normal
maintenance is not covered under the warranty and this service may be
chargeable.
Before every ride
● Mechanical safety checks, (see notes on page 2). Use a fully
charged battery. Visual inspection for damages.
After every ride (or WEEKLY)
● Clean the trike, including chain rings and sprocket. Clean and
lightly oil the chain and gears.
● This must be carried out after every ride in dusty, marine or
winter conditions due to the salt laden atmosphere.
Every 20 - 30 hours of riding (or MONTHLY)
● Squeeze the brakes and rock the trike to check for any
looseness of the headset or brake mechanisms with each forward or
backward movement. If any are loose, have your dealer check it.
● Lift the front wheel and turn handlebars left and right to check for
tightness of steering. If tightness is detected it may be necessary to
lubricate bearings and/or adjust the headset.
● Check and adjust the brakes, replace if worn out.
● Squeeze spokes in adjoining pairs between your thumb and
index finger.
They all should have the same tension. Have your dealer re-spoke or
true the wheel if necessary.
● Check cables for rust, kinks and fraying, have your dealer
replace them if necessary.
● Check bottom bracket for play and adjust if necessary.
● Check wheel bearings for play and adjust/lubricate if necessary
18

After 3,000 miles (5,000 km) (or YEARLY)
●
Hub motor and general inspection
We recommend you arrange to have a thorough inspection of
your tricycle by a BATRIBIKE dealer. This includes opening up
the hub motor to inspect and lubricate the gears.
Tyre Pressures
The tyres should be pumped up to within the range stated on the sidewall.
This should be regularly checked as running with the correct pressures
will ensure maximum range from the battery.
Repairing a punctured tyre
If you have a punctured tyre, we recommend that you get a specialist to carry
out the repairs. You can always of course consult a specialist and carry out the
repairs on your own if you are confident that you have the necessary skills.
As there are no electronic components on the rear wheels, their removal follows
standard procedures as with normal bicycles.
Removing the Front Wheel
If you need to remove the front wheel, for
example, to replace the front tyre, then the motor
can be unplugged to aid disassembly. The plug
is located on the left side of the forks as shown,
(Left).
MOTOR
PLUG
Take care when re-assembling the plug to
ensure that the two arrows are aligned correctly.
Remember to ensure that the cable is suitably secured to the tricycle fork upon
re-assembly.
Be mindful of the tightening assembly sequence of washers, nuts and spacers.
Battery Fuse
If the battery will not operate or charge correctly, firstly check the battery fuse
(rated 30A) located on the side of the battery beneath the screw cover. Use a
large flat bladed screwdriver or a small coin to remove the cover.
