Ninety One Spectre 700C The Most Affordable Electric Cycle of 2022 Launched. Price, Features

Last month NINETY-ONE Cycles launched the Meraki S7 the successor of Meraki, but another bike which should be talked about is the new Ninety One Spectre 700C. The bike is launched at an unbelievable price with comparatively better features, and as of now, this is the cheapest electric cycle on the market. So let’s have a look at the features and find out whether it is worth buying or not.

Design And Build Quality:

The design of the bike is very much identical to the Meraki and comes standard 18″ frame design which is made of steel. The steel frame is quite robust in nature and durable too and the good thing is the company is giving a lifetime warranty on the frame. But because of the steel frame, the bike is comparatively heavy, it weighs around 23.2kgs including the battery and it can bear up to 100kg of load. The bike has a 10″ seat post and is ideal for 5′.5″ to 5’10” riders.

Motor And Its Torque:

Spectre runs on a 250w IP65 BLDC rear hub motor and the good thing is it has good pulling power as it is able to generate a maximum 40nm torque.  Well, as per government norms the top speed is restricted to 25kmph.

Battery And Its Range:

The bike is powered by a 36v/6.36Ah non-removable Lithium-ion battery by Panasonic. The battery is quite efficient and can give 2000 charging cycles. The battery gets charged in just 3 to 4 hours by a 2A charger. On a single charge, you can travel around 18 – 25km 40km* on throttle mode. Whereas, on pedal-assist mode, you will get around 30 to 35km* of range. 

Pedal Assist:

For the pedal assist, this bike comes with 5 levels of pedal assist mode backed by 12 magnets sensor, and the same can be controlled by an IP66 LED display which is mounted on the handlebar of the bike.

Wheels And Suspension:

Spectre is a hybrid bike and comes with 700c wheels combined with anti-skid nylon tires, and as usual, this bike also comes with double-wall alloy rims. The bike has no suspension and comes with a rigid fork, and that performs well on paved roads. But on rough roads, it may feel uncomfortable.

Gear System And Brakes:

Spectre is a single-speed ebike, but the good thing is, unlike other same category ebikes, it comes with 160mm dual mechanical disc brakes with an auto safety cut-off feature. That means when applying the brakes, it immediately cuts off the motor from surging ahead.

Additional Features:

Additionally, the bike has an ignition key to start the bike. So without permission, no one can access your bike in your absence. But sadly, there is no headlight, no horn or mudguards present on the bike.

Price:

The bike is exclusively launched on Flipkart by Ninety One and is currently (as of 11/05/2022) available for ₹250939 – ₹27999(based on offer). This is an offer price and is listed for a limited time. Note, that the price is not in static condition and can be changed anytime by Flipkart.

For assembly of the ebike or any further support, you can contact the company on this number +91 93169 34146 or an email at [email protected].

Warranty:

With Spectre, you will get 2 years of warranty on the battery and motor, and, 1 year on the other electrical and mechanical components, and on the frame, you will get a lifetime of the warranty.

Verdict:

So in a comparison with the same category of ebikes, this is a worth buying ebike at this price range. Because comparatively, it has a bigger battery by Panasonic, comes with dual electric disc brakes, has 5 levels of pedal assist, and surprisingly it comes with an ignition key lock too. So at this price range, you won’t get these features in the same category of ebikes. But still, you need to compromise with horn, mudguards, and headlight like features, other than these, if your daily commute limit is around 30 – 40km, if your purpose is for only city commute, and if you are a brand conscious then surely you can consider this bike as currently, it is giving the best deal.

ATTENTION:

*Please note, the actual riding range may vary for every individual due to body weight, road condition, level of assistance, and acceleration.
