The instrument panel, the motor and the battery are integrated and interconnected at the moment of purchase meaning that if even one of these elements is missing, the Piaggio Wi-Bike Plus will not work. The battery includes a GPS/GSM function which doubles up as an anti-theft device and battery-data transmitter. If the bike is stolen, an alert is immediately sent via the dedicated app, and the bike’s location is tracked on the map.
The display of the Piaggio Wi-Bike Active Plus is
“contactless” and automatically powered, near the control unit, thanks to NFC (Near Field Communication) technology. The display serves to act as an electronic key so if you remove it (if you’ve parked the bike, for example), it effectively locks the entire system, making the bike unusable. To request a new display, you must have a personal code.
PMP (Piaggio Multimedia Platform) technology integrates your smartphone via bluetooth with the Wi-Bike functions, including navigation and motor/gear control. It also provides output at the end of every training session so that you can review your circuit and performance and, if you so wish, share the details with friends via the main social media networks.
Using the app on the Wi-Bike Active Plus, you can select your preferred power mode. With “Standard” the motor develops power proportional to the effort detected on the pedals whilst “City” mode provides a boot every time the motor restarts. The “Hill” option allows the motor to adapt to the gradient, releasing more power uphill and less downhill or on the flat. All three motor maps can be set to ten different assistance levels.
The sporty design which characterises the Wi-Bike Active Plus is the result of Piaggio’s style centre and can be seen in the aluminium frame in various versions, starting with the classic male and unisex pair. The brake system is composed of two discs with hydraulic callipers; 180 mm in diameter up front and 160 mm at the rear..
Even greater appeal
Piaggio has expanded its own horizons with a pedal-assisted bike which offers not only practicality and pleasure but also the chance to interact and share the experience.
The Piaggio Wi-Bike Active Plus is the aesthetic evolution of its standard namesake, sporting appealing stylistic elements such as the dedicated colour schemes and finishing in beautifully-crafted leather. The frame comes in a men’s version only, with top crossbar, in sizes M and L.
The secondary transmission uses belt drive with
variation automatic control. The electric motor, located near the chain ring in line with the central mobility unit, is limited to 250W and 25 km/hour so that it falls into the electric bike category.
The400-Wh lithium-ion battery is nestled behind the seat tube and is capable of an average range of 60 – 120 km, depending upon the terrain conditions. Its recharge time is just over 3 hours.
