The cycle comes with a fingerprint sensor to avoid theft. It also has built-in walkie talkie, bluetooth and the user can control the cycle through an app
The cycle comes in three different models with prices as below:

Apart from cycle, the company also showcased a 3D Helmet or a virtual reality headset (VR) and LeMe bluetooth headphones at an event held here on Monday and said that it would launch their first smartphone – LeMax – in the country on January 20.
