Can I ride the DV-X in Singapore?
Yes you can. The DV-X is EN15194 Certified and LTA-compliant as a Pedal-assisted bicycle (PAB).
Will the bike move without peddling or have a throttle?
As part of the requirements for a PAB, the motor power of the bike can only cut in when the rider starts to pedal. The motor power will be progressively reduced and finally cut off as the bicycle reaches 25km/h, or sooner, if you stop pedalling.
How is the battery charged and when does it need to be replaced?
The battery is charged on-board the bike using the AC Adapter provided. Each battery pack has been tested to withstand 500 full charge-discharge cycles.
How fast can I go?
If you are riding on a cycling/shared path, you have to adhere to a maximum speed of 25km/h. If you are riding on the roads the motor power will cut off as the bicycle reaches 25km/h, but if there is no speed limit on how fast you can go as it depends on how much you pedal.
What is the range of the bike?
It really depends on various factors including the terrain/condition of the cycling path, total weight on the bike, wind conditions, etc. Based on tested rides, we estimate that each battery pack (252Wh/7Ah) gives you a range of 25-30km on pedal-assist mode 1.
However, since the DV-X is a pedelec, you can continue to pedal it just like a bicycle even if your battery accidentally ran out of power.
Can I increase the bike's range?
Of course! The DV-X uses a swappable battery system, and has been designed to hold two batteries snugly in its frame. So, if you need extended range we suggest that you get a spare battery together with the purchase of the bike. We do offer a good price for the spare battery.
When will the DV-X bike be delivered?
Estimated delivery from March 2019. Do remember to sign up for our launch updates to receive latest news on product and events.
What is the Warranty for the DV-X bike?
The bike comes with a 8-months warranty from the date of delivery, against component failures, excluding items exposed to wear and tear, such as brakes, tyres, handle grips and seat.
Other than the electronic components, most of the parts on the bike has been designed to be compatible with off-the-shelves BMX/Mountain bike components for easy-fixes. For more details on component sizes, contact us via the contact form.
