TI Cycles Montra E-Bicycle
The Montra bike brand of TI cycles of India aims to remove the dependency on public transport for shorter commutes. While we look for its features it comes with an alloy frame and a dual-mode that allows the user to shift between manual and electric mode as per their convenience. It comes with an electric braking system which ensures effective and smooth braking as it cuts off the motor power upon application of brakes.
The electric bicycle on average will run at the rate of 7 paise per km while reducing the individual carbon footprint and also saves a lot of time that we invest in waiting for public transport. While we look for its technical terms Montra e-Bikes will provide a range of up to 30 km in a single charge and up to 25 km/h of maximum speed. These e-bikes will be available all over India.
Mr Vellayan Subbiah, MD, Tube Investments of India said, “The Short distance commute segment is dependent on choice and availability of public transport for most of us. With the launch of Montra E-bicycle, we want to give our customers independence from the waiting period as they ride to their destination. With electric being the future of mobility, e-bicycle shall become the most after sought mobility solution among the urban commuters,”
“Recent research suggests that India’s e-cycles market is projected to grow to USD 2.08 million by 2026 at a CAGR of 12.69 per cent, which is significantly huge and untapped potential. As a brand, Montra has always been a customer-centric brand – from being the first ones to use a carbon frame in the cycles in India to make the electric cycles lightweight today for rapid, smooth, and easier transportation. With our new Montra E-bicycle product offering, we are sure to expand our family of customers, who are looking for quality and short distance everyday commute.”
