Pure EV E-bikes : Epluto 7G, Etrance, Egnite and Etron
Couple days ago, a mini truck delivered an electric mobike at a neighbour's home and I saw couple of vehicles I'd never seen before - they had prominent "click retail" branding on them.
Looked very interesting, so today I googled this and found that click retail is a retail outlet in Bangalore that sells these vehicles.
I also saw the "PURE" branding on a picture of the click retail store and another internet search yielded PURE EV, a startup that makes these mobikes and ebikes.
I think what my neighbour got is the Pure ETrance model. Will try to get more first hand information from him soon
*Edit: Etrance, Epluto etc are some of the electric mobikes this company makes. They also have E Bikes (bicycles) which is the topic of this thread.
MODS: please move or cross post to relevant thread if necessary.

Re: E-Bikes (electric bicycle) : A comprehensive guide
I am in the market for a Escooter so this interested me.
At 80K their ePluto 7G model is reasonably priced. Although the specs are not compatible with Ather 450. From the website it looks like they are incubated start up by IIT Hyderabad which in my view is a positive as compared to the Chinese clones that Hero /Okinawa parades. The put off is the Hub wheel design. Why don't companies use a simple BLDC motor and a belt drive like Ather?. The problem with hub wheel motors is weight at the rear wheel. Especially on a ramp, the bke just can't pull. The ePluto 7G has a gradient of 12 Deg which when compared to Ather 450's 18 deg is a let down due to the rear hub wheel. Not to mention the whole headache of removing the bulky wheel in case of a puncture or DIY Service
