So, if you're looking to hop on the electric two-wheel urban mobility, go ahead and spoil yourself. 'Tis the season, after all.
PVY is one of the newest arrivals on the e-bike market, and it's working overtime to offer features you'd otherwise find on a mid-level or even upper-mid-level product but for a low-entry price. When you're working against such fierce competition, you have to find something to make you stand out – and this is PVY's whole angle: bundling unexpected, even premium features on an e-bike that remains priced affordably.
The PVY S2, the latest addition to the company's lineup, is sticking to the proven recipe.
The PVY S2 rides on 16-inch wheels clad in 2-inch tires and features front suspension and a rear mechanical shock absorber, an almost unheard-of feature at this price point.
Power comes from a 250 W motor with 37 Nm of torque and the ability to go as high as 350 W in unlock mode, with the maximum achievable speed increasing accordingly. A 7.5Ah battery is good for 60 km (37.2 miles) in medal assist mode and 40 km (25 miles) in full electric mode.
The list of features also includes electronically controlled headlights and brake lights, and mechanical disc brakes. The bike's a single-speed one, and PVY promises it can climb inclines of up to 12 degrees while providing a smooth riding experience even across rougher surfaces.
As noted already, the highest selling point of the S2 is the fact that it aims to offer so many things at a price point that would make it unbeatable. The bike retails for €549 (approximately $585 at the current exchange rate), reduced from the MRSP of €649 ($692), and that alone is probably enough to recommend it as a viable option for the daily commute.
