The Taiwanese technology group Acer has presented a first e-bike with the ebii. It should be characterized by its unusual design, in which the black aluminum frame is combined with a white box that houses most of the electronics and the battery. The motor supports the driver up to a speed of 25 km/h.
The range is supported by Acer 110 km per battery charge specified. The battery should be fully charged in 2.5 hours. It should also be able to be used as a power bank for other devices. The e-bike weighs 16 kilograms and is designed for riders between 145 and 185 cm tall.

The manufacturer is particularly proud of the smart functions of the e-bike. An AI supplement is intended to learn the driver’s behavior in order to decide exactly how much support is currently optimal. The e-bike should be able to do without a gear shift without any disadvantages.
A Bluetooth connection to the smartphone allows the owner to lock the bike automatically, when moving away from the ebii. If the mobile phone comes within range again, the e-bike unlocks itself. In the event of theft, the GPS module sends a notification with tracking options to the smartphone.
