The bike can accelerate to 120 km/h and cruising range on a single charge is 120 km. the Company is also working on the stations, battery replacement. Their principle is simple: you just leave on charging your battery, take a fully charged and keep going. It also assumes that drivers will be able to charge them when they are home or busy with other things.
