That's us

We firmly believe that with sustainable mobility in cities we can reduce CO2 emissions and ensure a better quality of life.

With SUSHI BIKES we have therefore developed an e-bike that costs less than half of an average electric bike - reduced to the essentials, light and puristically designed, and made in Portugal.

With our concept, we want to make flexible, green city mobility accessible to everyone and thus sustainably change the urban landscape for the better.

Quote Andy

Dream team

ANDY and JOKO

We are Andy and Joko, founders of SUSHI BIKES. With SUSHI BIKES we have developed an e-bike that costs less than half of an average electric bike and impresses with the pure design of a single-speed bike, quality and lightness. Our goal is to make flexible, green urban mobility accessible to everyone. That's why we've been really stepping on the gas since the launch in 2019: the first SUSHI BIKES were already on the streets in February 2020. Based on the valuable feedback from the first customers, the Maki+ and California Roll+ models will follow in September 2021. After three years of company history, we are now launching the third bike - the SUSHI BIKE 3.0 with many new features and new colors. Let's roll!

Quote Andy

“THE SUSHI IS A BIKE THAT WAS CREATED WITH THE LOVE OF BIKES. EVERY PART WAS CHOSEN WITH ATTENTION TO DETAIL, OTHERWISE DAD WOULD BE EVIL!"

STORY

Why Sushi Bikes?

Originally the brand was not supposed to be called SUSHI, but rather DRAIS. Inspired by TESLA, Andy wanted to breathe new life into his bicycle brand by reviving a historically significant figure, "Karl Friedrich von Drais". Drais invented the balance bike and served as a key source of inspiration for all developments in the field of mobile transportation.

Unfortunately, the name was already trademarked and Andy didn't want to start his new venture with legal trouble. So Joko and Andy sat down one evening to brainstorm a name. A new name had to be found by midnight. That evening they ordered sushi, the catchiness of which stayed with them throughout the evening. So SUSHI BIKES was ultimately born from the idea.
