Tell me about the bike!
These custom shared e-Bikes were developed through a partnership with GenZe, a leading developer of zero-emissions, two-wheel electric vehicles. The e-Bike’s maximum speed is 18 mph. They features a 345 Wh Li-ion battery and a user interface panel that lets riders know their speed and battery charge level.
