The Greyp G12 is an electric bike that uses a fingerprint scan to start it up.
The bike is one of the latest to follow the trend of using body data or information to ensure security, just like the Nymi wristband, which uses one’s heart rate as a password.
Part bicycle, part motorcyle, the Greyp G12 can save up to 50 users in its system and each user is allowed up to 5 fingerprints. Owners of the bike can select which fingerprint to start up the bike and also use specific fingers to switch among the different riding modes like Street Mode and Speed Mode. Owners can also limit the rights of other users.
The bike has a 5″ full color display that shows various data such as speed, battery status, range, motor temperature, and driving modes. Riders can choose to pedal along and help the motor or simply ride and let the bike do all the work. The bike can run up to 65 km/h unassisted by the rider. One charge of the battery can take the rider up to 120 km of range.
According to a post on Wired, the electric bike sells for about 6,00o Euros.
Greyp Bikes is by the people who created the Rimac Automobili Concept_One, dubbed as the world’s most powerful electric car.
