INHABITANT / city e-bike

INHABITANT
INHABITANT

INHABITANT is a human-centered city bike with emphasis on the capability to allow the government to flexibly adjust the types of bikes according to population dynamics change. Various bikes satisfy riders’ need which will increase city bike utilization rate. Through the slid mechanism, the middle frame can be easily replaced with 3 options for different purposes. The Light-on-Body system directly projects the light on the back of riders, so hand signals become more obvious at night. Snap switches make it easier for riders to adjust the seat and handle height. The front screen incorporates GPS and shows the battery condition & the speed level.
