The set up of the controls in the entire system is designed with the rider in mind, and its operation is simple and uncomplicated. To increase the speed, the rider only needs to press the on/off switch above the right handlebar while cycling, and increase the speed of the trishaw to the desired speed before releasing the switch. The battery-powered trishaw will then travel at that constant speed. To reduce the speed, the rider simply uses the brakes as control. Maximum speed = 20km/hr.
Place of manufacture: The trishaws were produced in China.
