As we reported earlier that a new Pune based startup has emerged with a freaking awesome concept of Personal Mobility Vehicle (PMV). Check the spy shots by clicking on these words. The Polarity Smart Bikes is all set to unveil six new electric Smart Bikes in Mumbai this August. The brand has focused on eliminating the need for charging by providing pedals to recharge the batteries. hence, these bikes will be the first-of-their-kind road-legal EVs with pedal assistance.
The startup has released teaser images of its bikes (you can check them in Gallery below), revealing the sleek and stylish designs. These images also give us a sneak-peek of the lightweight bike that would make the riding experience easy and stress-free.
As much as six products are ready to launch by Polarity on the launch event which will happen in this month itself. The company is working on these smart bikes since it was founded in 2017. These six models are divided into two main segments – Executive and Sports. Moreover, each segment has three variants with a different design, power output, and range.
Sports segment comprises of S1K, S2K, and S3K with 1 kW, 2kW, and 3kW electric motors respectively. Same power pattern is found on the Executive segment with their code names being E1K, E2K, and E3K. All of these variants will have a minimum range of 80 km per charge. However, the top of the line models S3K and E3K are capable of achieving a top speed of 100 kmph.
As said earlier, these bikes do not rely on charging infrastructure due to their pedal assistance feature. Means once you are out of charge you can travel and at the same time charge the batteries just by pedaling. Polarity aims to capitalize on this for rapid growth in the EV industry. As usual, the smart bikes comes with Lithium-ion battery packs.
Pedal assistance ensures easy transportation to your destination even if the battery is completely discharged, thus solving the problem of range anxiety that is often associated with electric vehicles. The compact design of Polarity Bikes will allow riders to enter service elevators of apartment buildings and park them inside their homes. Not to forget that the bikes can be mounted on a custom Polarity stand, to be used as an exercise tool. Bye-bye Gym, sort off.
Speaking about the components, the bikes will have rigid frames with telescopic forks up front and monoshock at the rear. Braking performance to come from disc brakes at both ends. The wheels are spoked ones so tyres will be tubed (minor setback). Headlight and taillight will be full-LED units.
