Our Genius electric bike will cater to teenagers, which is still an untapped market. We believe Genius will add significant value in form and function to the electric bike segment and also address the environmental concerns of the automobile industry and the country.”
Priced at Rs 25,495 (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Genius is available in three colours; yellow, blue and red. With the launch of the Genius, the company aims to make its mark at regions where it does not have dealerships, and will soon better its dealer network by increasing the count of dealers to fifty. At this price, the e bike is considerably cheaper than a conventional scoot, the cheapest of which should be the very popular and reliable TVS Scooty. Also, a clean bike which can reduce the pollution to an extent and put a smile on the user’s face as there will be no need of fearing high blood pressure every time fuel prices are revised, is the need of the hour.
