The urban focused bike features flat-free tires
Acer, the computer giant, has taken a surprising leap into the world of electric bikes with the release of the Acer Ebii, an AI-driven urban e-bike design that comes with a rear-collision sensor. The e-bike has been developed in collaboration with Acer's subsidiaries, MPS Energy for the power system and Xplova for the computer system.
The bike has a swappable battery and an LED display on the handlebars that provides crucial information like remaining battery power, assistance level and distance left to travel.
The Ebii is made of aluminium, with a carbon belt drive for the pedals and airless ‘flat-free’ tyres made from multilayer foam inserts. It features a rear collision assistance sensor, crash detection, and a health status check, giving you a status report on the bike’s components.
The 16kg bike has a 250/350 watt motor, can travel at 15.5 mph (25 km/h) while pedal-assisted, and has a maximum range of about 68.3 miles (110km), charging to 100 per cent in 2.5 hours.
The Acer Ebii also comes with a smartphone app for viewing the current charge, locking and unlocking, and for calibrating the built-in front and back lights. Pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed.
