Audi electric mountain bike: Features
(1.) According to the German manufacturer, the bicycle takes inspiration from the in-house RS Q e-tron Dakar racer, which won four stages of the 2022 Dakar rally.
(2.) The vehicle, a limited-edition launch, comes with Fantic's 720 kWh battery, which, in turn, powers a Brose S-Mag 36 Volt 250 electric motor with 90 Nm torque.
(3.) There are four cycling modes: Boost, Eco, Sport and Tour. Of these, says Audi, Boost delivers the maximum amount of assistance for hilly routes, while Eco is for maximum energy and range.
(4.) On the other hand, Sport, as the name suggests, is for sport cycling, and Tour provides a ‘notable’ boost. A digital display on the handlebar shows data such as speed and battery level.
(5.) The bike is available in sizes ‘L,' ‘M’ and ‘S.’ Each is priced at 8,900 Euros (approx. 7.69 lakh; 1 Euro= ₹86).
