Evaluation

Reminiscent of a motorcycle or car design rather than a bicycle. A uniquely developed power drive system is mounted on the beautiful carbon fiber body, inspiring the role of electric bicycles in the city. The big operating touch panel attached to the handles is unique as that of a bicycle, but we can use it rather naturally in our time where smartphones are prevalent. The ride can be softly assisted along with pedaling and makes you aware of the elaboration in both hardware and software aspects. Human power and electric power, and hardware and software are continuously merged in a seamless way, providing the blueprint for next-generation bicycles.
