Local bike rental startup oBike has grown from renting out bicycles to selling one now. Its latest product oBike EVS is a power-assisted electric bicycle that is available for pre-order now.
Apart from its sleek new look, the oBike EVS comes with a removable battery that fits on mid-section of the handlebar and is capable of supporting at least 25 kilometres of riding. It also doubles up as a powerbank for charging the phone, in case of emergencies when you need to call for help from friends and family.
Other features of oBike EVS include an inbuilt GPS that track down the exact location of the bikes you used and an adjustable seat with a new locking mechanism that can accommodate taller riders.
