Tiller Rides has announced that their advanced and digitally connected first 500 e-bikes will begin arriving in Australia fresh off the production line from December 2021.
Considering the global e-bike market in 2020 was valued at $23 billion and is predicted to grow at an annual growth rate of 11.86% until 2026, Tiller Rides is expecting huge export opportunities as it quickly ramps up production over the upcoming years.
“The Roadster, is one of the most advanced and digitally connected e-bikes. Everyone else’s e-bike is like an old Nokia phone in comparison,” said Tiller Rides co-founder, Julian Ilich.
“Not only is it cheap to run, costing 20 cents to charge a battery that will last 95-100kms, it has highly advanced and modern features that other e-bikes could only dream of.”
“The Roadster has a comprehensive anti-theft system, so you’ll never stress about your bike being stolen again. It has a retracting quick tether cable lock and keyless motion sensing alarm, mobile connected GPS tracker and central locking of all other removable features.”
“It has a stylish moulded aluminium monocoque frame housing the bike’s battery, electronics, mechanics, and even a storage compartment with a puncture repair kit and rain poncho.”
“The Roadster has a belt drive instead of a greasy chain powering the tires, one of the only e-bikes globally that operates this way and it’s a trend that is quickly catching on.”
Tiller Rides offers investors an opportunity
During its development Tiller Rides raised over $3.4 million from investors, with 200 also pre-ordering bikes they will start taking delivery of this December.
With global domination firmly in its sight, Tiller Rides is once again offering Australians the opportunity to invest in the company for as little as $250.
“One of my favourite features is its connectedness – the bike has its own inbuilt sim card which connects back to our central database. Just like a Tesla, The Roadster can self-diagnose any problems it may be having, and we can often fix your bike remotely by sending updates.”
“Our customer service team will look after you throughout the bike’s lifecycle!”
“Its mobile or Bluetooth connected app allows you to lock and unlock your bike remotely as well as track your speed and distance travelled. You can even charge your phone while you ride via the USB-C port. What doesn’t this thing do!”
Despite a growing electric bike market, manufacturers have failed to create a stylish e-bike that makes urban riding as appealing as taking a car, which is where the Roadster steps in.
Covid-19 along with falling battery prices has seen an e-bike boom as people shun public transport, becoming more mindful of their health and cutting carbon emissions.
E-bike sales data from the last 12 months show this trend with 23% annual growth in Europe, 145% in the US, and 60% in Australia. And unlike motorcycles or mopeds, there is no need to register e-bikes or obtain a license to ride one, and their agility means you can park anywhere.
With a maximum raise of $2.2 million in shares up for grabs, Tiller Rides will use its capital raise to buy the remaining parts required to turn on the production line and to boost its sales and marketing across Australia so more people can be a part of the transport revolution.
As an urban mobility company, Tiller Rides has a fleet of other products planned or in development including an electric scooter, a cargo e-bike, and even a micro car.
