Acer forays into EVs, launches MUVI-125-4G bike with eBikeGo

Acer, the tech giant known for its PCs, has launched its first electric bike in India. The MUVI 125 4G is a product of a collaboration with eBikeGo.

The EV wave is catching on with many companies coming forward to introduce their innovative solutions for sustainable mobility. The latest to join the bandwagon is the Taiwanese tech giant Acer which is known for its PCs and accessories. At the ongoing e-mobility expo in Greater Noida, the brand unveiled its e-bike MUVI 125 4G. This is the first time that Acer is foraying into the EV segment, a significant milestone for the company.

The new electric two-wheeler has been designed keeping in mind the needs of an average Indian commuter. The vehicle is efficient, elegant and eco-friendly. MUVI 125 4G is an outcome of a collaboration between Acer and Indian electric mobility company eBikeGo. The MUVI 125 4G is the first vehicle to have the Acer insignia on it. The bike has been designed by eBikeGo, a firm that has been making strides in sustainable urban mobility in India.

According to Irfan Khan, founder CEO of eBikeGo, the partnership between Acer and eBikeGo is grounded in a shared vision for a greener future. Through a confidential long-term program, eBikeGo will spearhead the development, marketing, and customer support for a range of EVs under the Acer brand, including eBikes, eScooters, and eTrikes.

The Muvi-126-4G has been engineered with state-of-the-art European technology and made in India. During the exhibition, we took the bike for a spin and in our experience, the vehicle promises a seamless ride ideal for narrow streets and varied terrains.

The ebike’s standout features include swappable batteries as this could be a game changer in longer journeys. The lightweight yet robust chassis offers ease of movement and it comes with 16-inch wheels that offer stability and safety. It offers a top speed of up to 75 kmph and a range of 80km.

While the MUV-125-4G is the first step, the collaboration between Acer and eBikeGo plans to offer a series of two and three-wheeler EVs under the Acer brand. The company is yet to announce the price and availability details of its bike.
