11 Quick tips for a smooth and carefree YO ride

One of the best things about YObykes is that they don’t ask much for maintenance. They are as easy to maintain as to drive and you don’t have to give your much in order to keep these electric scooters running well.

Conventional vehicles on the other hand, have complex mechanisms such as engine, clutch plates and gear box and are tough to maintain. You need to take them to a mechanic for a repair and that too, cost you so much. But electric bikes manufactured by YObykes hold a simple mechanism. They have an efficient rechargeable battery and a BLDC hub motor to count as major components.

Here are 11 quick tips to keep your electric bike running well and enjoy a carefree ride:
1. Regularly charge the battery of your bike and avoid discharge in use.
2. If it has not been used for three or more weeks, then charge it first before you use it.
3. Prefer to use only an Electrotherm-supplied/approved charger to maintain a good battery life.
4. Do not try to dismantle either charger or battery.
5. Avoid overloading or over speeding your vehicle as this will substantially reduce its range.
6. Avoid racing start as it can faster drain the energy from its battery. So avoid fast acceleration.
7. Avoid frequent and unnecessary braking.
8. Maintain proper pressure in the tyres. Under-inflation can increase the rolling resistance and waste the energy.
9. Turn off the power whenever your electric scooter is not in use (At road crossing signals etc.).
10. Lubricate all moving parts that are exposed to atmosphere – chain, axles, pedal pivots, brake lever joints, etc. Lubricate these parts more often in dusty and rainy conditions.
11. Don’t use water-under-pressure while cleaning your battery bike in order to prevent damage to electrical components.
So keep these tips in mind and let your electric scooter keep going. Have a smooth YO ride!

YObykes – Ideal for your school-going child

Electric Scooters – 7 Myths Debunked!

Even if knowing the fact that gasoline scooters and cars cause air pollution on combustion, we don’t really opt for electric scooters that offer environment-friendly transportation. 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. Plus, any normal fuel-driven automobile would cost you too much for its pricey fuels. 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.

So what do you say? Has this post cleared your misconceptions?

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.
