The system also allows android or iOS to be connected, to track the destination before actually heading the place. The bike is mounted with Brose motor powered by 497-Wh lithium battery. The energy consumption rate of the e-bike is 350 Watt which ensures that it can travel approximately 160 km with charging of only 3.5 hours. The bike is fitted with two hydraulic disk brakes, 250 lumen LED headlight, an anti-theft alarm and a GPS tracking system. It weighs around 18 kg and costs 2,256 US dollars.
