Hong Kong – Tech company Bob eco launched its second-generation Model X electric motorcycle. With the new changes to the design and package deal Bob Eco sets the new standard for electric motorcycles, adapted, and designed in detail to spur human potential and create the greatest possible environmental benefits.

Bob Eco is a clean energy tech company with a crypto and blockchain branch. Bob Eco keeps on developing methods to support the clean energy transition worldwide.

One of the latest developments is the introduction of the second-generation Model X electric motorcycle. With a focus on affordability, functionality and performance, the Model X is tailored for developing countries most common commercial usage. Model X was carefully designed to be the pinnacle of safety on African roads, giving optimal protection to the rider and other road users, designed both for urban and rural environments.

Model X Gen2 has no emissions since it can be charged with renewable energy from the grid or a solar system. The electric motor has no fumes and is silent without compromising performance. This means there are no CO2 emissions, nor is there sound pollution.

A system of rechargeable batteries powers the Model X Gen2. The electric motorcycle can cut the cost of ownership by up to 70%. This is achieved with the extreme durability of the Model X; the vehicle is virtually maintenance-free, it can last longer than any petrol-fuelled motorcycle out there, and its electricity is incomparable in price compared to petrol.

The new Model X Gen2 comes as a package deal for riders and includes all the necessary items to give riders the possibility to earn a stable income in Africa whilst having a minimal impact on the environment. It also includes 2 of the new helmet series, one delivery box, one backpack, charging cables, rider shirts, rider jackets and a lot more.
