A good news for riders! Since Xiaomi produced consumer electronics from robot vacuum cleaners to desk lamps, new personal electric vehicles came out either.

The Chinese giant Xiaomi yesterday officialized a new two-wheel electric. This is the result of the collaboration between the new brand partner HIMO and Xiaomi. Until then this brand partner was unknown to the traditional circuit of sale of electrical product. With this partnership Xiaomi gives again the possibility to a small company like HIMO to launch. However, Xiaomi is increasing its dominance of new cycle technologies. This new project is called Xiaomi Mijia HIMO Electric Bicycle, discover it immediately.

This new electric bike comes back with an unconventional shape. It remains in the lineage of compact bikes and ultra urban with a foldable part. Its size is 1080 mm x 510 mm x 1020 mm. Thus it is very easy to transport since its handlebar folds to take the least possible space. Also, the manufacturer HIMO has made an effort on the weight because it weighs only 16.7 kg. It is perfect for both men and women and is available in two unisex colors. The two colors chosen are white and orange.

The newest electric bike Himo is compact and affordable (it only cost $261). The thing surprising us is the new product can cover 50 kilometers on a single charge with 250W brushless DC motor in power-assisted mode in 6.5 hours.

The motor pulls power from Himo's 36V Li-ion battery, which appears to be arranged in a 10s3p configuration using 2 Ah 18650 cells, for a final capacity of 6 Ah at 36V or 220 Wh.

It has foldable handlebars featured detailed LCD display to reveal battery power and distance covered, waterproof casing, convenient switching buttons for riding modes and electric mode, LED headlight and tail light. The bike can also be used as a standard pedal bicycle by changing the operating mode.

There are many advantages you cannot reject: customed aluminum alloy built around the central case (which leaves room for a handle to carry the little e-bike with you), light and elegant appearance while the cables and wiring are also integrated directly into the aluminum alloy frame.

If you are interested in this product, you are able to find Himo in Xiaomi's Youpin crowdfunding platform on July 30th, and in few month, it will appear on Amazon in the US, GearBest, AliExpress, and Banggood.
