Ultra Motor Announces A2B Electric Bike

Whether you live in a big city and simply don’t have the space or inclination to own a car, or you’re simply looking for alternative transportation that doesn’t pollute the environment — walking or biking are probably high on your list of ways to get around. However, there’s always going to be some point when you don’t feel like walking and you don’t feel like pedaling a bike around. For these times, you need something like the new A2B Electric Bike by Ultra Motor.

I’ll say right off the bat that the bike is odd looking to my eyes. It uses mountain bike style suspension and upright riding position with an oversized seat for comfort. A small tray that sticks out from behind the bike, under the seat, and can be used for stowing computers or other items that are small. The bike has pedals that can be used if it runs out of battery power or to increase the cruise speed, but the pedals are not needed for normal operation.

 

The bike can travel for 20 miles on a single charge of its lithium-ion batteries at speeds of up to 20 mph. The battery is swappable on the go, allowing you to double the distance the bike can travel. To charge the bike you simply plug it into an AC outlet it in your home. This could be an ideal method of transport for people who are members of the green brigade. Pricing for the bike is unknown, but it will be available nationwide in September through authorized dealers.
