Greyp G6 bike launched, live streaming, internet connected smart bike
Greyp have just launched their G6 EMTB. Developed in house by supercar maker Rimac, the G6 starts at €6,449 to €7,449. The bike is packed with tech and and really pushing the boundaries with what is possible on an ebike. To start, the bike has dual 1080p cameras front and rear that allow you to live stream your ride, or just record some of the best bits via a remote on the bars. The bike will record around 30 seconds of riding when you activate the camera via the remote.
There’s a whole range of gamification that Greyp have built into the bike too. You’ll be able to connect to other G6 riders to compare distance, power or a whole other load of competitive measures.
The motor is fully waterproof. Greyp claim that you could actually ride it underwater and it’d not suffer any ingress. It’s also the worlds first metal geared motor, all others use plastic. Made by MPF, its an integral part of the G6. The assistance of the motor can be controlled by a traditional remote or depending on your heart rate. The motor provides 250 W nominal and 450 W peak assistance and the firmware was provided by Greyp.
The entire frame is carbon fibre and it has some exquisite detailing. Knowledge gained by manufacturing the wolds fastest supercars has helped with the design.
A 700Wh battery is standard on all models and runs as another part to the frame, so no integration or bolt on here. Greyp say that it helps keep the frame stiff because it doesn’t need any cutaway or reinforcing.
Geometry wise it has a 67 degree head angle, with a fairly long chain stay at 480mm. I’m getting a day riding the bike tomorrow so I’ll get a good idea as to how it feels. 150mm travel give it more trail geometry than enduro and the company claim its capable of around 100KM. That’ll have to be tested out as mileage can vary!
The bike is fully connected via an eSim and GreyP have negotiated a deal until 2022 with mobile networks to provide access free of charge (full country list TBC). This allows for some really cool stuff. You’ll be able to remotely log into your bike to set it up. It’ll be able to be remotely disable if someone decide to take it without your permission. It’ll even detect movement and activate the cameras sending you a live feed of whats going on if a thief decides to take their eye to it.
A cradle on the bars will hold your smart phone and become a dashboard for your bike. It’ll display various information like speed, charge levels, GPS mapping and range.
The Greyp G6 is available in three models: G6.1, G6.2 and G6.3. The G6.1 is limited to 15.5 mph and costs €6,499. The G6.2 has slightly higher component spec and comes in at €6,999. The G6.3 has a top speed of 28 mph and costs €7,499, this is not a regular legal EMTB and would require to be registered etc.
The bike is already available to order and is being built right now in Zagreb.
