Gocycle is a lightweight electric bicycle which will be available throughout India via a network of authorised resellers and dealers appointed by Bird Mobility. The Gocycle is priced around Rupees 3.5 lakhs for the base model, and Bird Mobility will provide full warranties and after sales services. Rony Abraham, Business Head at Bird Mobility said the following:
“The growing concerns over traffic, rising pollution levels as well as increasing health awareness amongst people has resulted in a growing demand for personal mobility devices in India. At Bird Mobility we focus on offering innovative solutions by bringing in best global brands that are known for developing safe, unique products thus redefining personal transportation for consumers and businesses in India”
Gocycle comes with a front-hub motor which separates the powered drive from the pedal drive. The electric motor powers the front wheel and pedals power the rear. The bike also comes with a predictive electronic gear shift which is very helpful while waiting for the green light. Its micro motor is said to have twice the power-to-weight ration when compared to conventional e-bikes.
This e-bike has an automotive inspired adjustable driving position. Furthermore, the Vgonomic-designed seat-post and frame geometry along with the height and reach adjustable handlebars ensure a superior level of comfort. The front hub motor and battery contained within the chassis balances the weight, thus making it easy to handle.
It weighs only 16kg, is stowable and you can easily assemble and disassemble it. Furthermore, being a true tech toy, it comes with a simple dash where you can view the battery level, driving mode, speed and gear position.
