The E-BIKE is the smallest  vehicle in the system and it belongs to the Auxiliary group. It would be placed inside the commuting stations to provide a programmed and shared service to the users. This bike features a 0.7hp brushless electric hub motor placed in the rear wheel. However, to avoid being used as an electric vehicle only, thereby reducing its functionality, the cyclist can choose to pedal the bike at will. The motor will provide extra power when the cyclist needs it to reduce his/her fatigue. Therefore, human power can be efficiently assisted by the hub motor when the user requires it.
The steering system of the E-BIKE is electronically assisted by moving the handlebars in a for-aft movement.
This steering style allows the cyclist to have a safer and more ergonomic control of the vehicle.
The E-BIKE holds a servo-electronic system to fold itself in a compact manner in order to be stowed and recharged on its platform. At the Commuting station, these smart platforms are designed to maximize space inside the stations. Also, they feature a touchscreen for users to program and pay for the shared service.
The E-BIKE is designed to efficiently transport upper-class executives to their work offices from the commuting stations in an environmentally clean and healthy way.
