2 Min Reading

Rhoda Electrical Bicycle (Rhoda AT), Sri Lanka’s first electric smart bike, was launched in Colombo on Thursday (24) under the patronage of Rhoda AT Founder and Chief Executive Officer Eyas Fazul.

According to Mr. Eyas, the company’s electric smart bike is designed to promote cycling in the country and is a solution to Sri Lanka’s rapid urbanization and air pollution. This smart electric bike is based on 3 basic concepts. Namely Convenient, Sustainable, and Economical.

The Rhoda AT electric smart bike is powered by a powerful electric motor that can cover a distance of 60km on a single charge and can reach speeds of 19kmph to 25kmph.

Another special feature is that a smart app can connect this bike to your mobile phone and activate it as the bike’s brain. This allows you to lock and unlock the bike through your phone’s fingerprint. It is also stated that the running cost of this bike is only 20 cents per kilometer, and it takes a maximum of four hours to charge the battery fully.

It is also reported that registration is not required to drive this road. This is due to the fact that electric vehicles operating in Sri Lanka only require registration for vehicles above 750 watts. Mr. Fazul says that the motor power is less than 750 watts and no registration is required.
