Ultra Motor, known in India for their Electric Scooters, will be offering their new A2B Electric bike in the USA. Ultra Motor USA claims that their A2B can serve up unassisted power rides of 20 miles cruising at a speed of 20mph. Plus, the A2B can be upgraded to double its range with the addition of a secondary battery pack. Bike specs are 73lb / 33kg weight with its aluminum frame, 36V Lithium Ion batteries, and a BLDC hub 500W motor. The best feature of this bike besides the dual suspensions, disk brakes, and wide enduro tires, is that is looks like a fairly normal compact bike cleanly integrating the battery packs into the frame unlike most other e-bikes that have huge boxy protrusion hanging off of them. No word yet on pricing.
The A2B has also been designed to fit in with Ultra Motor’s urban bike recharging stations, called LEV City Initiative, their solutions for greener and cleaner city transportation. Find out more at Ultra Motor
