Hero Lectro Glide SS: Electric bikes in India are getting more popular these days, and this should be, to save our nature. People are so curious to buy one, but due to the high price, they use to avoid it. But this time Hero Cycles made every Indian happy with the launch of the cheapest e-bike the Hero Lectro Glide SS which cost only ₹17850. So let’s jump into the features and specification of the e-bike.
Design And Build Quality:
Hero Lectro Glide SS is an entry-level electric bike of Hero Cycles. The bike has a slightly step-through design and looks like a normal bicycle. The 16″ frame has made of 6061 aluminium alloy, which not only strong but lightweight too, only 19kgs. For the saddle, they have used PU material with graphical design, and the good thing is you can adjust the seat’s height as per your height.
The Lectro Glide SS operates by a 250w BLDC motor, which maximum speed is 25KMPH. The motor is powered by a 5.8Ah/36v Lithium-ion battery which is mounted on the lower frame, and it is a nonremovable battery. The battery takes 3-4 hours to charge fully, and on a single charge, it gives a riding range of 30 to 40kms. Well, 30km is considered as an ideal riding range for a daily commute.
The bike comes with a 27.5″ of wheels dimension and runs on anti-skid nylon tyres along with double-wall alloy rims. For the braking system, the bike comes with two different brakes, where, on the front, it equipped with a disc brake, and alloy V brake on the rear.
In the name of Glide SS, the “SS” stands for single-speed, so it means it is a single-speed electric bicycle and has no gears on it. But the company has also introduced a gear version of it, and which comes with the same design, features and specification. But this one is slightly costlier than the single-speed one and that is ₹25350. So it is totally up to you whether you will buy the single speed or go for the gear one.
