PER­HAPS, THE

Bike India - - FEATURE TRONX ONE -

most im­por­tant fea­ture of the One is its de­tach­able bat­tery pack. The com­pact power source can be re­moved from the frame at the turn of a key and fits into any small back­pack quite eas­ily. That means you can charge the bat­tery at home or at your desk when at work. This is par­tic­u­larly use­ful if you live in an apart­ment build­ing; no more ar­gu­ing with the neigh­bours about us­ing the com­mon power out­let to charge your elec­tric ve­hi­cle. Tronx Mo­tors claim that the bat­tery charges to full ca­pac­ity within three to four hours and has a range of 50 km.

In spite of the light­weight frame, the Tronx One tips the scales at 25 kg (with­out bat­tery). Once the bat­tery is plugged in, the One’s weight is ap­par­ent. The bulk, although not too in­tru­sive to rob you of the fun fac­tor, will not com­ple­ment very sporty rid­ing styles.

you might be won­der­ing why you should con­sider a Tronx One over its ri­vals (sporty mod­els from pre­mium brands), es­pe­cially when the One is priced at Rs 49,999. The an­swer is quite sim­ple: it is a jack of all trades. agreed, it is not a mas­ter of a par­tic­u­lar cy­cling dis­ci­pline, but by be­ing ver­sa­tile, it does make a strong case for it­self as an ev­ery­day ve­hi­cle for a wide range of users — from school kids to fit­ness en­thu­si­asts to work­ing pro­fes­sion­als who are look­ing to re­duce their car­bon foot­print.

Of course, a more ac­ces­si­ble price tag and a sharper de­sign could have worked in its favour. How­ever, if you are de­sirous of do­ing your bit for the en­vi­ron­ment and work out a bit while at it, you could make this your ve­hi­cle of choice for short dis­tances.
