Hero has brought an upgraded version of its e-cycle Electro Plus, with notable features. Firefox's Adventron, which carries a price tag of Rs 61,000 (appx), on the other hand, boasts some of the best features available in an e-cycle.
Hero also had something in store for its loyal fans — a concept model of its much-loved cycle Hero Jet, along with a battery to make the common man's commute easier. It remains to be seen, though, if the bicycle will become a common sight on roads anytime soon.
Hero displayed three e-bikes under its Lectro brand — Townmaster, Glide and E Zephyr — in addition to those from its recently-acquired German company HNF Nicolai.
E-cycles typically run 30 km to 40 km per charge and come with a swappable battery which is easily detached from the bike for charging. High-end e-cycles also offer connectivity options via Bluetooth.
