I just saw a MoonCool TK1 folding electric trike on the internet. It looks to be a close copy of the Lectric XP folding electric trike. My brother might get into the market for an electric trike, I thought I would recommend the Lectric XP trike, but he tends to try and one up me on such things. The MoonCool trike is about $300 more then the Lectric XP trike. Just wondering if anyone had any feedback on the MoonCool?
 
I've got one of Lectric's trikes and very pleased with it. I know them to be stable financially and have sold a bit over 300,000 bikes in the last 4 years. Mooncool's sales are not published. Just be aware that with every every day it seems that some new ebike company starts advertising and seeding their bikes out to the vast mob of "reviewers", most of whom "love the bikes", but who mostly like YouTube views and free bikes. No doubt many ebike companies won't make it. I bought one of Lectric's first ebikes and ended up selling it after 3 years, still working perfectly.
 
I have been very pleased with my Lectric trike, and it sure appears that the MoonCool TK1 is a very close copy of the Lectric trike. Could it be that it is a Korean or Chinese knock off? I do like the fact it has a front suspension.
 
We got one about 2 months ago. The assist will work in the garage for a sec, then we take it down the hill, and nothing.... sometimes it will work when we bring it back up in the garage, after pushing it back up the hill. It will not work at all now. We have tried everything from the "customer support" and nothing. Anyone else have these issues?? All of the connections look good.

My wife has the MoonCool TK1 Folding trike. She loves riding it and asks to go on rides often. We have about 200 miles on our ebikes, mine is a Lectric Long Range XP3.0 and hers is TK1... we ride same speed, although different PAS levels. EVERY TIME I recharge the batteries it takes at least 20% longer to charge my XP3.0 than her MC TK1. Both bikes have a 14Ah battery.

PROS: Stable, after my wife got used to it she wants to go faster. Good battery life, we have been on (2) 26 mile Rail-2-Trail rides and at least (4) 21 mile Rail-2-Trail rides and her battery is always faster to recharge. Sturdy components with the exception of the chain master links. One has been replaced but did leave her stranded on the trial about 3 miles from the van. I replaced it with a better quality link and may do the long chain as well.
CONS: Stock seat is very uncomfortable for her. Buy a cruiser Cloud 9 seat! Left ebrake lever is tight and she can not apply the ebrake on the left (front).

Last comment her TK1 has way more torque (seat of the pants, not measured with tools) than my XP3,0 Yes I can set the Xp3.0 as a Class 3 and go fast but her TK1 will still climb hills more readily than the XP3.0

Specs:::
TK1 100# rider and gear 140#
XP3,0 65# rider & gear 255#
