    Leo Motors, a pioneer in Electric Vehicles has geared up to showcase its collection at the ongoing San Diego County Fair, California. And their latest electric motorcycle steered Greenlaunches towards them. Dubbed Hilless, this eco-friendly two-wheeler is designed for zipping about city limits. It uses digital automobile technologies such as driving mode, whipping mode, and Ultra Balance Battery Management System (BMS) for sustainable use. Such high-tech features will help this EV to overcome the usual hurdles that most of the electric bikes face. So bid adieu to problems like ‘inability to run long distances up steep hills; sudden power loss immediately after achieving peak power; batteries that fail to work properly; and prohibitive expense’.

    It is fitted with a motor that churns out power equivalent to 100~125 cc scooters. The detachable Li-Polymer 48V/53A battery battery is convenient to charge up too. Weighing just 105 kg, it can reach up to 100km/h. Such a green two-wheelie can also serve as delivery vehicle. In fact Leo Motors recently received an order for 3000 Hilless scooters in Seoul, S. Korea for use for food delivery services. Folks in US will need to wait till the end of this year to see such a EV roll down their roads.
