As time goes on, technology is advancing with it. At one time the ‘e-bicycle’ was a part of our very simple life, which is still there, but nowadays there is a touch of modernity in particular. So far we have seen LCD displays on a car or half-finished scooter and motorcycle. But the idea that even a bicycle can have an LCD display is beyond imagination. Yes, the country’s e-mobility startup VAAN has launched an electric bicycle with such an LCD display. Let’s find out the details of the e-bicycle.
Kerala’s Minister for Technical Development, Business, Electronics and Information Technology Rajeev Chandrasekhar has launched the VAAN Electric Moto brand electric two-wheeler at an event in Kochi. It comes in two variants – UrbanSport (Urbansport) and UrbanSport Pro (Urbansport Pro). It is currently available in the Kochi market in Kerala. Later it will be available in Goa, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Delhi markets. The booking has already started, the booking is going to be exchanged from the official website of the company (https://vaanmoto.com) for 999 rupees.
With a maximum speed of 25 kmph, no driving license is required. Its range is 60 km. Interestingly, to fully charge the battery of the bicycle will cost half a unit of electricity, depending on the state and region it can cost 4-5 rupees. This is what the manufacturer VAAN has claimed. Its battery comes again with removable technology. Weighing 2.5 kg, this battery can be fully charged in 4 hours. All the necessary information will be displayed on the LCD display of the e-bike and from there its front and rear lights can be turned on / off.
The VAAN Urbansport and Urbansport Pro are priced at Rs 59,999 and Rs 69,999 respectively. The bike was jointly built by VAAN with the Italian e-bike brand Benelli Biciclette. The Italian company has made the frame, saddle, rim and handlebar of the bicycle suitable for both men and women. Meanwhile, Jithu Sukumaran, the head of the company, said that it has the capacity to produce 2,000 units of bicycles per month.
