PLUG IN INDIA REVIEWS SPERO

Top comments

  • I was expecting Regeneration to be the biggest feature, but what I noticed (more) was the Cruise Control ! 
  • In crowded streets, Pedal Assist is a boon. The motor does as much work for you, as you are willing it to do. It is amazing to see how this comes together.
  • Very good top speed, and you can see the Regeneration happen, and that's awesome!
  • Much lighter that other E-cycles!
  • They have succeeded where most people have made half-hearted attempts. They just put aside the price & everything else, and made the best bike they could... 
  • SPERO does outshine all others in its class!!

  • It's the most fun I've had on an E-cycle!
  • And they even found one secret feature, at the end of the video, too!

About PlugInIndia

We @PluginIndia are passionate about Electric Vehicles and Clean energy. Our aim is to accelerate the shift to plug-in vehicles powered by clean, affordable, domestic electricity to reduce our country's dependence on imported oil and thus improve the global environment. We have started doing this by creating content (blogs, videos, reviews) that helps in spreading awareness of electric vehicles and clean energy.  We also get the EV industry to interact with the community.

The cool, funky electric bicycle takes the exertion out of riding a bicycle. It’s an urban commute vehicle, not only does it leave a zero carbon footprint, saves you on big fuel costs, but will also ease the congestion on the roads in big cities.

The SPERO E-Bike is being rolled out by Milltex Engineers (P) Ltd, Coimbatore and is setting the stage for continued innovation especially in the field of green technology. Mr Manikandan, the brain behind this innovation, understands and embraces the need for us to move towards a more environmentally conscious way of life. This is his contribution to encouraging that way of life, forward. Which is why he’s taken an environmentally friendly way of transport and transformed it into a more viable, more attractive mode of transport.

What is the background of the promoters of this product? Where is this bike produced?

The bike is produced by MILLTEX which began its humble existence in the 1970s, dealing in textile machinery spares and renovation kits. The group from its inception till 1990, renovated more than 7000 carding machines and with experience gained over the years established a private limited company – Milltex Engineers (P) Ltd. The current Management team ( S. Manikandan, Supriya Paul & Mothilal) with a hope to build a better tomorrow is leading the charge in e-mobility. A holistic plan for mobility after careful study of the industry’s evolution, the current global scenario and the National Electric Mobility Mission 2020 was created. In early 2015, a team of motivated youngsters were given an assignment to design the first of the many products / solutions planned.

How is the bike on handling uphill terrain?

Performance on hills depends on the steepness of the hill and the weight load on the bike. In some instances, people will need to use both the pedal and the motor to go uphill.

What’s the maximum weight limit?

We've tested the bike up to 120Kgs .We cannot make any guarantees about performance or durability above that weight.

How high can the seat extend?

The seat can extend a full 12”. This put it 42 inches off the ground.

What is the frame size?

The frame is 44" from axle to axle. 68" tire to tire.

How much does the bike weigh?

Depending on the model the bike weighs approximately 23.5kgs without the battery & approximately 26 kgs with the battery

How much does the battery weigh?

The battery weighs approximately 2.7Kgs for a E-30, 3.4kgs for a E-60 and 3.7kgs for a E-100

What are the battery specifications?

48-volt Lithium - Ion battery is designed for long running time. Batteries can be charged hundreds of times without noticeable loss in capacity. Model: Lithium-ion18650, BMS, Charger and Aluminum Case | Top quality battery, no memory effect, high energy density, long lifecycle. | Electric/Pedal assist range up to 40, 70, 120 kms (rider weight and terrain contingent) | Under Electric Power Range - up to 30, 60, 100 kms (rider weight, wind speed and terrain contingent)

Is there a rear-splash guard option? Is there a back-tire rack option?

They are available as accessories. This bike has standard frame qualities making it easy to modify with aftermarket products, including splash guards and rear racks.

Can I replace the parts on the bike?

Sure. We had a few different options for the parts that we decided to move forward with. The decision to select these parts come down to price, availability at scale and quality. It is entirely up to you on what parts you would like to use. Replace them at will.

I have seen the wheels on a bike before at my local bike shop, can I buy those if I pop a tyre?

Absolutely. The SPERO eBike uses parts that are already on existing bikes on the market. The bike parts can be found online, or on other bikes so they are commercially available.

Is this a single speed bike? Can you limit it to 10MPH for off-roading?

It has 5 Speed electric Gear shift. Yes, you can limit the speed. Pedal power is on a single freewheel gear, as it is designed to receive motor assistance.

Is there speed monitoring/digital display on the bike?

Yes there is built-in digital display/speedometer.

Is there a key/interlock to prevent accidental starting?

Yes there is interlock currently. However the throttle will not start until you shift digital gear by pressing the button to activate the motor.

Will a standard U-Lock fit around the wider frame?

This varies depending on the type of lock, and the type of U-Lock that you use, but in general it will work with most consumer bike locks. Remember that the center portion of the frame is utilized for the battery compartment so all frame related locking would be through the back wheel and frame which is ideal in most cases.

Fortnightly updates have been committed to after the campaign ends.

Still have not received the cycle! not received any worth-while update as to whats happening! Miltex is very poor in managing customer expectations.............Paid 37,000 in 12/Aug/2016 and today is 18 March 2017....received NOTHING...no cycle...not even a clear update of whats happening!

I agree with Anand. Too many missed commitments by Spero team and they still believe their way is highway and have don't care attitude to customers complaints. Even though I got chance to ride the cycle for week, the experience was good during short stint. Unfortunately, my cycles battery has been taken back to Coimbatore by their service personnel to fix the attached handle bar for taking out the battery pack. I am not sure of when will I actually get it back due to the fact that Spero timeline commitments are always questionable. I would not recommend Spero to my friends, not because of bike itself, but because of Spero teams attitude towards their customers, who happen to funding them for their success.

I Received my E60 on 11th of Feb. The riding experience is awesome, specially the paddle assist or power assist feature. But few things I want to know 1. Is it over charge protected? Suppose I connect the charger to the battery and left it whole night, than could it damage the battery? 2. How to do password protection? Is there any user guide available? 3. How can I fix a rare wheel carrier, bcoz the disk brake is there? 4. Is the shock absorbers oil filled? How to maintain it from dust & dirt? 5. It's mentioned that I could check the tyre pressure, but I don't know how? 6. Where can I buy the accossries, like the carrier, mud guards etc? If anybody knows than post answers for the queries.

Recd my E60 on 11th Feb. A good product, as promised. I enjoy riding it. Received a rather insipid feedback call. I wish the SPERO team all the best to overcome its teething problems.

The SPERO team has managed to convert me from an enthusiast to a miffed customer. After 3-month long delay, which I did not mind, I've received a faulty product. My calls and messages to Mothilal-- who is always driving or out-of-station-- are occasionally responded with uncommitted promises, with no signs of follow-ups. He is unapologetic; blames the courier guys for all the faults with the product; and assumes that he and his team are doing an awesome job. They have failed to see through even the basic things of ensuring a decent delivery of the product and are providing a shabby customer service.

Wrong update on campaign that spero has dispatched all products and sent individual dispatch details to all backers. I have not got any such intimation.
profile
Moiz Shabbir
To give a lenient review of Team SPERO, they're a group of technocrats (to be verified) with little or no experience or knowledge about the commercials. Delayed deliveries have taken the joy out of funding/backing a new product. So much for Indian start ups. These neo business class should learn to promise less and deliver more.

<<<>> The cycles have not yet reached the customer!________The cycles have not even been dispatched by Miltex!_______And fuel a dream thinks this campaign is already successfull!___________ Very disappointing!

I am surprised at the silence of the manufacturer. Leave alone fortnightly updates, we do not get even monthly updates. Request please arrange to advise delivery dates of bikes which have been funded in October 2016

Dinesh Parida
Hi there, Although I appreciate your work towards a green mobility, but customers are getting impatient for the delay. Please clarify them why it's getting so delay. Put list in your website how many of them already got and how many in the line to get, so that it would be much more transparent. Thanks

Can this be delivered for Christmas atleast? (Today is Dec 7th still) The whole process has taken several months now and the eagerness of looking fwd to use the new bike is slowly going down. Any possible methods that cut the process time ( ie From User Investing in the idea to User able to use the product) should be STRONGLY pursued and implemented.

Dear Mr. Manikandan. I had booked the Bike thinking that this shall be delivered by late October , early November 2016, since this was for my daughter who is supposed to leave to the US by the end of December 2016. Is there any possibility to get the Bike delivered before that, so that we can see her using the Bike atleast for a few days. I would definitely look forward to your positive response in this regard. Thanks/Balasubramanian RG

Am getting a bit worried .. Has been quite a few weeks after purchasing the bike online -- Other than the initial emails - I have not received responses to my emails . I am not clear on the Delivery of the bike either . More worrying is the T&C on the Warranty ... Most are not customer friendly (Only cover Mfg defects) ... Now with the Battery issue (Fire & Explosions) with Samsung -- I hope that does not affect the bike battery... A bit worried

Hi, hope the Samsung batteries for these bikes are not of the same genre as the Note 2 batteries ;) I love this explosive product but want it sans explosion!
