Arjit Soni, Founder & CEO of MYBYK said, “With MYBYK Electric, we are trying to give users a unique combination of health + commute + convenience. Our electric bicycles offer users all the advantages of a bicycle which one can pedal for health & leisure as well as that of a low-speed electric scooter which one can throttle for commute purposes. And for the adventurous ones, we have the ‘power pedal’ mode which assists the user and gives a boost when they pedal, reducing their effort by up to 80 percent.”
