It features a 9-speed rear derailleur and trigger shifter system. The bike folds up to a small size of 69x38x75cm for storage and weighs 35.5 lbs (16.1 kg). Riders will value the Unio E9’s functionality and speed.

The bikes, according to ALI, weigh about 300 kilogrammes (660 pounds) and have a payload capacity of up to 100 kilogrammes (220 pounds). ALI has been developing its hoverbike since it first began developing drones with AI. Kyocera and Mitsubishi Electric are among the company’s backers.
With its smartphone app-based “HELLO CYCLING” bike-sharing platform, OpenStreet Co., Ltd., a member of the SoftBank Corp. group, is a market leader in this area. From Iwate Prefecture in the north to Okinawa Prefecture in the farthest southwest, there were about 4,700 OpenStreet bike-sharing stations spread throughout Japan.
With its expanding presence, HELLO CYCLING is evolving into a practical choice for those who are constantly on the go, whether they require wheels for errands, sightseeing, or commuting. Customers simply need to download the HELLO CYCLING app and make a free account to get started.
An electrically assisted bicycle can then be reserved at a nearby HELLO CYCLING station (often found close to train stations or convenience stores) and returned to any other participating station.
In order to conduct bike-sharing trials in the city of Toda, Sinanen Mobility+ Co., Ltd., an OpenStreet partner that runs the “DAICHARI” bike-sharing service, signed the agreement. 19 new stations are being installed around train stations, parks, and other locations, in addition to the existing HELLO CYCLING bike-sharing stations in Toda City.
Toda City will research the efficiency of bike-sharing as an urban transportation mode that supplements public transportation infrastructure using the data collected from the trial. The City will also think about how bike sharing can boost tourism and local revitalization.
