Whoppa Cycles



Our flagship product is the proudly South African Whoppa Ithuba, a modern vendor-trike built for Africa’s harsh conditions and the future; it’s designed to create sustainable jobs wherever it goes. Like all of our Cycles, it is available with either pedal power or an electric motor.

The iThuba frame is made from quality grade steel, it’s shaped and treated to specific standards, SANS welded and powder coated in our Germiston factory. It is available in three chassis sizes to accommodate virtually any payload with a maximum capacity of 250kg excluding rider.
