INTRODUCTION

Having sold over 170 e-bikes and raised over ₹ 64 lakhs over two campaigns, this is your chance to pre-order & fund India’s most successful crowdfunded innovation and get your very own SPERO e-bike today! This bike accelerates from 0-25 Kmph in just 10 seconds, has a cruise control feature, has a range of 30 to 100 Kms (depending on the model), comes with a detachable battery pack & has loads of other unique features.

This Uber cool electric bicycle is a next generation urban commute vehicle. Not only does it take the exertion out of riding a bicycle, it also leaves a zero carbon footprint, saves you big on fuel costs and will also ease the congestion on the roads in big cities.

Customers from the first campaign have started getting the Spero. 50 of them have been despatched as of 26th OCT ,2016.  The initial feedback from users has been phenomenal & some of them have already been stopped on the road by curious onlookers who want to understand how they are cruising at a 25 Km speed without pedaling! The SPERO E-Bike is manufactured by our firm - Milltex Engineers (P) Ltd at our factory at Coimbatore

SPERO – Despatch forecast for your pre-orders

Graphic above indicates that first 50 bikes booked in this crowdfunding campaign will start shipping from our manufacturing unit in Coimbatore approximately 50 days after the campaign ends.


Risks and challenges
  • Delivery timelines are the biggest challenge for us. The first lot was delayed wrt despatches by a month, as the batteries which are imported took much longer to be delivered to us. We had them shipped from the Samsung factory. The other imported components include motors & some electronics.
  • For this campaign we believe we have sorted out the reasons for the delays. However, there is always a chance of something going wrong because of situations beyond our control.
  • These could be because of strikes/ bandhs, acts of nature (floods/ severe inclement weather), shipping delays because of issues with ships etc.

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 100Kgs .We cannot make any guarantees about performance or durability above that weight.

What is the frame size?

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

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.
