Smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has just launched its all new Himo H1 electric bicycle. The bicycle has been designed keeping portability in mind. Priced at USD 425 (roughly Rs 30,520) the Himo H1 weighs a total of 13 kilograms, and folds smaller than an A3 sized sheet of paper.
The frame of the electric bicycle folds in to half, both the wheels fold under the frame, the seat-post and seat folds, and finally the handlebar folds. Every part that folds can be secured via a built in lock that ensures the whole two wheeler remains folded.
Xiaomi's Himo H1 electric bike comes with a carry case of its own - making for convenient storage and easy portability. The electric bike features an adjustable handlebar, and an HD waterproof instrument cluster that offers information about the battery and headlamp statuses, and speed.
The Himo H1 also features a cushioned seat, and a pair of retractable foot pedals that are positioned just above the front tyres. The foot pedals function as a footrest only while the bike is in motion.
Best suited for last mile commuting, in-parks, on-campus riding, the compact Himo H1 can be carried easily in a car, over a scooter, and even in a backpack (recommended for those who enjoy an every day back and shoulder workout). The all-electric bike has a carry capacity of up to 75 kilograms.
The Xiaomi Himo H1 is powered by a 180W hub mounted motor, and a 6Ah Lithium-ion battery. The little electric achieves 30 kilometers on a full charge, and the battery takes between four and six hour to fully charge via a household power outlet.
Xiaomi says that the Himo H1 will not be launched in India, but one can buy the bike via the company's website. Buyers will have to pay taxes and duties in addition to the USD 425 retail price.
Thoughts About The Xiaomi Himo H1
While last mile connectivity is slowly becoming a big segment in India, we think that the Himo H1 is not really suited for the country. There are too many folding parts and an equal number of vandals. The Himo H1 looks great, probably rides great, but we think its best suited for China.
