London: Imagine a sophisticated bicycle that matches the
speeds of a bike with just the press of a button.
Well, your fantasy has now become a reality — thanks
to an incredible new e-bike by a auto manufacturer.
The new e-bike Worthersee, built on motor racing
design principles, has every possible gadget that you
could ever need just like a Formula 1 car. Perhaps the
most helpful feature is an electric motor to help rest
those tired legs of the rider. But this isn’t just any
electric motor, it can help build speeds up to 80km per
hour, the Daily Mail reported.
According to its developers, a cyclist can choose
between a total of five modes, including the pure muscle
power mode, the electric motor alone, or pedalling
supported by the motor.
In the ‘Pure’ mode, the drive power is purely the
product of the cyclist’s legs, while in ‘Pedelec’ mode
you are aided by the electric motor that then makes
speeds of up to 50 mph.
If you select ‘eGrip’, the ebike Worthersee runs
solely on the electric motor and can reach a top speed
of 31 mph. The cyclist then controls forward momentum
using a gripshift and can configure power as desired
using the touchscreen onbike computer.
The cyclist can also hook up to the computer using a
smartphone. For those looking to record tricks, video
images recorded via the in-helmet camera can be uploaded
to the internet in real time via your smartphone.
Facebook status reports also pop up on the Audi
e-bike Worthersee display.
