Does the RadRover have regenerative braking?

The RadRover does not have the capability of regenerative braking, which is only a feature on the ebike models by Rad Power Bikes with a direct drive motor (the RadCity, RadCity Step-Thru, and RadWagon).

The brushless geared hub motor that comes with the RadRover has about double the low-end torque of the direct drive motored ebikes, which allows it to start and get up to speed more efficiently and faster and to have better hill climbing ability. The geared hub motor also freewheels when you are coasting.
