X Bike pro is a unisex electric fat bicycle that comes with a full suspension system and motorbike seat. The pro model is a successor of its predecessor X Bike. The new model is introduced with some changes and improvements for a better riding experience. So without further ado let’s jump into the specs and features of the bike.
Design And Build Quality:
Unlike the predecessor, to give it uniqueness, the new model is restructured geometrically. They made a unisex frame this time so that men, women, and aged people can easily ride this bike. Even to give it a motorcycle look the company installed a motorbike seat, so now with this new model pillion ride is possible. The frame is made of mild carbon steel which is strong and durable. Including the rider, the bike can carry 150kg of load. The default seat height of the bike is 32″ and can be customized as per requirement on request.
The new X Bike Pro runs on a 36v/250w BLDC hub motor that generates up to 40nm torque. Due to high torque, the bike has enough power to climb fly over easily. The bike’s top speed is 25kmph, but with the help of pedal assist, this can be increased up to 35kmph.
Battery And Its Range:
For power supply, there are three battery options to choose from, 10Ah, 12Ah, and 15Ah. The 10Ah and 15Ah are Lithium Manganese Cobalt Oxide batteries aka NMC and that gives 2 times more charging cycles than a lithium-ion battery. With the 10Ah battery pack, you will get two options: either you can choose a 10Ah lithium-ion battery pack or go with a Lithium Manganese Cobalt Oxide battery. The 12Ah is a Lithium iron phosphate battery and runs 4 times longer than a lithium-ion battery.
For charging, the company will provide a 2A charger that helps to charge these batteries in 3.5 to 5 hours. Once it gets charged, then on a single charge on throttle mode with the 10Ah battery, you can ride this bike around 30km – 40km and, with the 12Ah it gives you around 40km – 45km range, whereas, with the 15Ah battery pack, you can ride this bike up to 50km on throttle mode. But on PAS mode based on the battery variant, you can ride this bike around 60km-70km. Note, the actual range may vary individually on various factors.
The new Xbike Pro comes with 5 levels of pedal assist mode and to get maximum assist out of it, there are 12 PAS sensors are installed in the crank. The higher the PAS Level, the higher the assistance you will get from the motor. So when you desire slightly less of a challenge and more of a smooth ride, you can select among these 5 Levels of Pedal Assistance.
Wheels And Suspension:
The XBike Pro has 26″ wheels and combined with 4″ heavy-duty fat tires by Compass that offer sufficient traction on the road and perform well on dirt and gravel trails.
For the suspension, this time the company is providing a better dual suspension system. On the front, there is a 100mm telescopic suspension that provides better stability, whereas, on the rear, it has a dual shock absorber that comes with adjustable features. The shocker’s stiffness can be tuned as per your need for a better jerks-free riding experience.
Gears And Brakes:
The XBike Pro comes with a 7-speed Shimano Tourney gear system. This makes it even more interesting to ride a bicycle with super fat tires. When you’re in the mood for an exhausting workout session, you can adjust the gear settings to echo the level of challenge you desire and can burn calories on the go.
The bike has 160mm dual mechanical disc brakes and these are electric brakes. So when you apply the brakes all-electric supplies instantaneously get cut off. The instant power cut-off also helps you brake just in time to avoid potholes.
Additionally, the bike comes with an LED headlight, an electric horn, and a digital multi-function display to monitor your riding data.
As for the pricing, it starts from ₹40,000 to a maximum of ₹75,000 and it is based on gears, tires size, and battery power.
The bike has a unique design no doubt. Due to its step-through frameset, anyone can ride the bike easily. Even with the help of its motorbike seat, it allows you to do a pillion ride. Other than this, the bike comes with powerful high efficient battery options with an advanced battery management system. Even the dual suspension system is now improved, you can now tune the stiffness of the shocker as per need for a comfortable riding experience. So because of this, you will definitely get better performance on this bike.
But still, just like the predecessor, there is no security system on the bike. Also being a premium bike, full-metal fenders should be there on the bike, and even wire management could have been better, the external cables routing looks scruffy. Even the 2a charger is quite slow for the 15Ah battery pack, so the 3A charger should be provided with the bike to reducing the charging time.
