5 Ways to keep up your battery scooter’s performance

Whether you have planned to buy an electric bike or you already own one, you would always want that your bike runs well, right? Well, we would also want that you have the best experience of riding it. That is why we, at YObykes, have come up with some tips that would help you increase the range of your electric bike and enhance its overall performance. Have a look, please!

1. Avoid overloading

Check the pay load capacity of your scooter. It is the carrying capacity of a vehicle which is normally measured in weight. It includes the riders and whatever you are carrying along with you on that scooter. This capacity changes from scooter to scooter. So first of all, check its pay load capacity and make sure that it doesn’t exceed the limit.

2. Don’t often change its speed

While you are riding your electric scooter, don’t suddenly change its speed. You should not suddenly pick up its speed to maximum when it has just been started. And vice versa, you should also avoid unnecessary and frequent braking unless it’s required in case of traffic jam.

3. Start your electric scooter gradually

YObykes come with a key start facility. You just have to turn the key and it will start but you need to take care that you don’t start it at full acceleration. A racing start may quickly drain its battery. So avoid fast acceleration while initiating it.

4. Maintain proper pressure in tires

This is essential! If you want your electric bike to run well, you have to make sure that its tires have proper pressure. If they are under-inflated, their rolling resistance will increase. As a result, their energy might be wasted and you wouldn’t want this, would you?

5. Save its energy

Whenever it is not in use, keep a practice of turning it off. Whenever you stop at traffic signals or road crossings or anywhere to attend a call, turn off your electric scooter. This would prevent draining its battery charge, save the energy and enhance its overall performance.

Above tips would not only just increase the range of your electric scooter but will also give you an uninterrupted and enjoyable ride.

How to select the best electric bike?

On this earth, there would be almost as many vehicles as the adults and majority of them are conventional which require petrol, diesel or gas. Perhaps some young people ride their bicycles. Only a specific class of people is there who are nature-lovers and love to drive electric scooters. These people are indeed wise because they understand the importance of clean and pure environment which is after all, beneficial to us only! Well, not only wise, but also smart because they know how to save a big portion of their income.

Smart, aren’t they?

Yes! Battery operated electric scooters have their own benefits over the conventional ones. As they run by electric power, they are eco-friendly. With emerging fuel prices, these electric scooters are a perfect alternative to diesel or petrol automobiles.

You might have decided to own such economical and environment-friendly electric bikes but might not be able to decide on choosing the right one. If it is so, YObykes is here to help you out. Through this post, we’re going to tell you about a few points that would help you buy the best electric bikes. Have a look, please.

Understand your requirements

One might need a two-wheeler for a daily transportation of hardly 4-5 kilometers. Other might need it to travel almost about 15 kilometers every day. If your requirement is to cover long distances, then battery capacity is the main thing to be considered. If you are in the delivery business, the load carrying capacity of your vehicle is also to be checked.

Design and structure

The best electric bike is the one which is easy and convenient to ride. And a convenient riding experience depends majorly on the design and structure of that bike. These electric scooters hold battery and motor as the major components which make these electric scooters light in weight. You also make sure that the one you are going to buy, is light-weight and easily manageable.

Sufficient storage space

For whatever use you’re going to buy an electric bike, check whether its storage space is sufficient to store your essentials while riding. If you are a student, you would need it to keep your stationeries and if you are a housewife, you would need it to keep your groceries. Keep in mind that if you don’t have enough scope for putting your essentials, you may face the inconvenience.

If budget is your concern, YObykes also sorts it out for you as they are an economical range of electric bikes. If you want to give it a try, book a test ride now!

YObykes – Ideal for your school-going child

Electric scooters are value for money

Any good conventional vehicle would cost you around INR 50K to 60K and then, the regular expense of its pricey fuels! But this is not the case with these electric scooters as they don’t use any fossil fuel. Also, purchasing them wouldn’t cost you as much as the conventional automobiles. So, they can also be a cost-saver for you!

No kick required!

Kick-start is not an easy task for all the women. It needs so much of energy and physical strain. These electric scooters are key-start ones! Just insert the key, turn it and it is good to go! So, a simplified experience of driving a vehicle!

Electric bikes, on the other side, are run by electric power and hence, they do not have any engine. They just consist of a light-weight electric battery and a motor. Hence, they are very light in weight and easily manageable by women.

So if you wish to buy a vehicle for your wife which is economical, eco-friendly, convenient and safe at the same time, then don’t wait. Book a test ride of any of our electric scooters!

Electric Scooters – 7 Myths Debunked!

This might be because of some myths we really believe in. But this piece of content is going to bust your myths and perhaps change your perception towards electric bikes, scooters or cars. So have a read, please!

Myth 1: An electric bike is just like an ordinary moped or any conventional two-wheeler!

Clarification: It’s not at all like a conventional two-wheeler. It is totally different in all the manners. A conventional scooter runs by petrol, diesel or gas whereas an electric scooter is driven by an electric motor and rechargeable battery.

Myth 2: It makes too much noise!

Clarification: As electric bikes don’t have any complex mechanism such as an engine, a gear box, a controller, a clutch plate or a converter; they don’t produce noise. They go very smoothly and peacefully.

Myth 3: Electric scooters are heavy in weight!

Clarification: Due to the absence of heavy components such as engine, tank or gear box, these automobiles are very light in weight. They only consist of a battery and a motor as major parts that make them almost three times lighter than the conventional ones.

Myth 4: They are inconvenient to ride!

Clarification: Their light weight makes them convenient to drive. Moreover, they come with easy and user-friendly controls and so, are easier to manage.

Myth 5: They offer very less speed!

Clarification: Those were old days when the electric bike manufacturing companies used to manufacture less-speed automobiles. But today, the scenario is different. The companies have started to introduce the trendy and high-speed electrical bikes.

Myth 6: They’re pretty much expensive!

Clarification: Many of us think that electric scooters are too expensive and at their price, any popular petrol vehicle can be purchased. But that is not the fact.

On the contrary, electric scooters need a regular battery recharging whose cost is minor, when compared with the fuel expenses.

Myth 7: eBikes require heavy maintenance!

Clarification: Absolutely wrong! No complex mechanics! No oil changes! Hence, almost zero maintenance.

How YObykes are zero-pollution electric scooters

As you are already aware, transportation is one of the largest sources of air pollution in the world. This air pollution carries some critical risks for both – environment and human health. That is why it is significant that we now focus on using electric scooters and cars instead of the fuel-driven conventional vehicles because electric scooters and cars don’t emit air pollutants.

YObykes are environment-friendly electric scooters unlike the conventional scooters that generate air pollution throughout their life span – during their manufacturing, fueling, vehicle operation and disposal. The gases liberated during these procedures, are very dangerous to Mother Nature as well as human health.

Let’s have a quick look at key air pollutants liberated by petrol vehicles:

Hydrocarbons (HC)
In the presence of sunlight, these pollutants react with Nitrogen Oxides to form the ground level Ozone which is a primary element in smog. Though it is beneficial to upper atmosphere, it irritates our respiratory system at the ground level. It causes cough, cold and also, reduces the lung capacity.

Particulate Matter (PM)
These are the particles of soot and metals which are fine particles and pose the most serious threat to human health because they can penetrate deep into the lungs. Particulate Matter is a primary kind of pollution which spreads directly.

Nitrogen Oxides
These pollutants reduce the immunity of human body to fight against respiratory infections such as influenza and pneumonia. They also cause lung irritation and various other respiratory disorders. Electric scooters don’t produce such gases.

Carbon Monoxide (CO)
This colorless and odorless poisonous gas is formed by the combustion of fossil petroleum fuels that are also primarily emitted from cars, scooters, motorcycles, trucks, etc. When CO is inhaled, it blocks the Oxygen from heart, brain and other vital organs. Infants, fetuses and new born children are more likely to have chronic illness due to this gas.

Greenhouse Gases
Conventional automobiles also generate Greenhouse gases such as Carbon Dioxide which causes climate change that is ultimately going to harm humans and other living organisms.

The electric scooters developed by YObykes are smart and don’t emit any of the above gases that are dangerous for us and the environment.

Why should you own an electric scooter?

If you too ride a conventional vehicle, you need to hold on! Better to use electric scooters or cars! Why? Read further.

Have you ever thought how much the conventional vehicles cost you? Let’s get on it!

* First, you’d have invested a big amount to buy it.
* Then, it costs you pricey fuel every month.
* You bear its heavy maintenance.
* Every year, it goes through depreciation.
* And at last, bad resale value!

So what do you say now? Is it a right decision to own a conventional vehicle?
