GoZero has launched the Skellig Lite e-cycle in India at Rs 19,999 making it the most affordable e-cycle in India.
It has a range of 25 km (at the medium level of pedal-assist), with a maximum speed of 25 kmph. The bike is powered by a detachable EnerDrive 210 Wh lithium battery pack and a 250 W rear hub-drive motor and is controlled by the GoZero Drive Control 2.0 LED display unit allowing the rider to choose between three pedal-assist modes. The battery takes just over 2.5 hrs to recharge. The Lite includes an alloy stem handle, with 26×1.95 tyres, specialized V-brakes and a rigid front fork.
Reluctance to use public transport and shared mobility due to Covid, along with the practice of social distancing has resulted in a surge in the sales of e-bikes around the world, over the last year.
With the launch of the Skellig Lite, GoZero has taken its first step into its Switch Campaign – one kick-started with the objective to drive the major chunk of Indian city-dwellers to ‘switch’ to from their current mode of transport to e-bikes. Pollution, obesity and high stress, among numerous other ailments, have become an inevitable parasite on the lives of the urban population. As observed and studied across the world, e-bikes have proven to have massive impacts on the health and well-being of the riders and coupled with the Skellig Lite being significantly light on the pocket, GoZero is paving the way to show that a transformation to e-bikes is the right and most effective way forward for our people.
Talking about the popularity of the Skellig Lite, GoZero CEO Ankit Kumar said, “With the onset of the pandemic and the second wave, people have begun taking Covid restrictions and their own health much more seriously than ever before. E-bikes strike the right cord in offering an economic means of private urban transport that provides daily fitness and safety from Covid-related risks. The introductory pricing of the Skellig Lite, makes it easy for beginners to take up this new mode and to integrate with their lifestyle. In fact, all our three variants of the Skellig – Skellig, Skellig Lite and Skellig Pro are well received by the Indian market with sales picking up on a month-on-month basis, each catering to their target segment with their respective USPs.”
