How YObykes (Electric two-wheeler) is different from conventional Petrol Two-wheeler?
YObykes is a battery-operated, economical, zero pollution and easy to ride two-wheeler. YObykes is based on electrical technology where the BLDC motor replaces the conventional engine. YObykes can be charged as easily as a mobile phone wherever electric power connection is available. Once fully charged YObykes can travel up to 75kms* in one charge depending on the load, speed & road condition.

How YObykes (EV’s) run?
On the application of start/ignition key, the controller gets activated. It sends electronic signal to all other electric components like accelerator and gives signal to controllers. The controller senses the signal & supplies power proportionally to the motor and the electric vehicle moves.
What is Motor?
YObykes are fitted with Brushless Hub motor, this is a permanent magnet DC motor with brushes replaced by rotor position sensors and semiconductor switches. As this motor is placed directly in the wheel, smooth torque is easily obtained. There is no wear & tear and no frictional losses. Efficiency is also more compared to brush motor. Motors are rated in terms of voltage and output in Watts.
What is Battery?
Battery pack is the ‘fuel pack’ for YObykes. YObykes are provided with Dip discharge VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead Acid) batteries. These are sealed batteries which don’t require any water to be filled up. No maintenance is required in these batteries. Battery pack are rated in volts (V) (typically in multiplies i.e. 12V) and amp-hours (AH) of energy. An Ampere-hour (AH) rating of battery determines the storage capacity of chare.
|YO Electron ER||48V, 24 Ah|
|YO Xplor||48V, 24 Ah|
|YO Spark||48V, 33 Ah|
|YO EXL||48V, 48 Ah [24 Ah * 2 sets]|
What is Controller?
The Electric motor controller, the ‘brain’ of YObykes (EV’s) provides electric power to the motor based on inputs from the accelerator. Controllers are rated in voltage and maximum current (amps.). A controller with a higher amp rating can deliver more power to the motor. A high quality controller will allow for smooth and precise control over acceleration and avoid overloading of the motor.
What is Accelerator?
The accelerator of YObykes sends an electronic signal to the electronic controller allowing the ride to precisely and smoothly change and control the speed.
What is Battery Charger?
Chargers are rated in current carrying capacity (Ah). The charger converts an AC supply to DC, in order to store power in the battery. This charger can be used with any normal domestic AC plug point. This makes charging of battery pack easy and convenient. Moreover the charger provided with YObykes is designed to avoid overcharging.
What is the charging time?
If the battery is completely discharged, it takes around 6-8 hours to completely charge it.
When should I charge the batteries?
All YObykes have a ‘battery charge’ indicator in the dashboard. The batteries should be charged according to the indication of the charge left. As soon as indicator shows nearer to low-charge indication, batteries must be charged. As a precaution – don’t expose the charger to rain or moisture, switch on the main current only after plugging both the sides of the charger, check and ensure that the small cooling fan of the charger is working during the charging.
Will it affect the batteries if charger is ON even after charging is over?
The chargers provided with all YObykes are specially designed ‘smart’ chargers. They do not allow batteries to get overcharged. Thus, even if the charger remains ON after the charging is over, it will not affect the battery life.
What is the effect on the batteries if the battery pack is left for days without charge?
Leaving the batteries in discharged condition for a long period will affect the battery life. It is advisable to recharge batteries regularly. Batteries can be left uncharged to a period of around 30 days. When leaving for outstation, recharge the batteries to full. On return, recharge the batteries before driving the vehicle.
Are the batteries detachable?
Batteries are heavy & are not recommended to be taken out.
