Hero MotoCorp May Launch India’s First Electric Bike

SimplEcity Electric Bike

Two people familiar with the development told Mint that the Hero MotoCorp Ltd, India’s largest two-wheeler maker, is likely to unveil India’s first electric motorcycle concept during the Delhi Auto Expo which will start on 5th February.

It is an electric motorcycle though it looks like a bicycle from its appearance and the code named “SimplEcity, the bike works on electric power from batteries…and essentially designed for use within cities.” However, a company spokesperson resisted commenting on future product portfolio.

The removable lightweight battery pack integrated with the seat is used for the bike in order to make it can be carried indoor for recharging. A smartphone will become the dashboard when docked on the handlebar.
