Acer recently announced that it was launching a new addition to its product range in the form of the “ebii,” an electric bike. The ebii features onboard AI which Acer says can help riders plan their routes, and even comes with some added safety features.
With a weight of just 16kg, the ebii is built with a modular framework that fits the battery pack and control box into a singular box. The bike comes with a single-sided fork design and a 250/350 W motor with 48 V CAN bus and 40 Nm torque, and provides users with assisted riding of up to 25 kilometres per hour. The battery can run for up to 110 km and charges up to 100% capacity in just 2.5 hours
As for its AI functionality, the ebii comes with support for the the ebiiGO companion app, that can collect user insights, and provide riders with updates on the bike’s battery life, current riding speed, and even check out routes for their trip. There are also different performance modes which include Eco Mode, My ebii Mode, and Boost Mode.
The bike also comes with a headlight and taillight that illuminate once dark, alongside additional lighting under the vehicle control box. The ebii is also equipped with a Rear Collision Warning sensor and built-in crash detection. As for availability and pricing, the Acer ebii will be available in for European and Middle Eastern markets in September, with a starting price of 1,999 Euros.
