To create a complete ecosystem and to enable better connection, the Tronx One alos works with an integrated app called ‘tbike’ that gives riders an estimate of the range as well as set fitness goals on the app from your smartphone.

The bike will start shipping from July 16 onwards for the first batch of customers who have pre-booked the bike.
Talking about features of the bike, the Tronx One features a display powered by Smatron’s tronX technology, displaying basic info like speed, distance travelled etc. There are multiple ride modes and virtual gears coupled with three electric gears and six speed Shimano shifters that are designed to extend and adjust the range and speed of the bike. The bike comes with a rust-proof aero grade alloy material frame. Further, there are cross road tires that measure 26×2 inches and are available on top of double wall alloy-made rims. To power the 250W rear hub motor, the Tronx One has a detachable 36V, 13.6Ah, 500W Lithium battery pack. There are both front and drear electronic brakes as well as a Zoom Masera 80mm front suspension.
Tronx Motors has partnered with service centers in nine select cities, namely Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi-NCR, Goa, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and Pune. Through these partners, customers will be able to test ride the bike as well, based on available appointment slots, the company said.
