Hero wants to be hero everywhere. Enough of electric scooters, Hero Electric now launched two electric bicycles in India named as Avior AMX and Avior AFX. Both are priced at Rs. 19,290 and Rs. 18,990 (on-road Delhi) respectively. These bicycles will be initially available in five metro cities, followed by other towns and small-time urbanization at a later stage. They come motivated by 6-speed gears from Shimano, and an electric motor that get its dose of power from concealed lead acid batteries. It takes 5-6 hours for batteries to charge till core, and can run without any fuss for 14 months, after which the replacement will cost less than Rs 2,000. These e-cycles are launched to bridge the gap between conventional bicycles and entry-level scooters over the price range. Mr. Naveen Munjal, Managing Director, Hero Eco Group, is quite confident for these newbies of garnering good response from the market as a fresh mass transport product. Important Note: Prices are bound to differ between Rs 3000-4000 in other cities as Delhi Government has granted 15% subsidy and levied 0% VAT on eco-friendly bicycles, which may not be the case with other cities.
