“A bunch of guys from IIT Bombay have made us proud again,” wrote Anand Mahindra while sharing a few pictures of him assembling and riding the X bike. “They have created the world’s first diamond frame folding e-bike with full size wheels. This makes the bike not only 35% more efficient than other folding bikes, but also stable at higher than average speeds. And it’s the only bike that doesn’t have to be lifted after folding,” he added further.
