The Piaggo Wi-Bike is a connected bicycle that uses the wonders of Bluetooth technology to keep you safer and more informed at all times.

This bike displays all the pertinent riding information on a backlit, waterproof Bluetooth LCD instrument panel which is capable of staying wirelessly connected thanks to NFC technology. The panel is also equipped with a USB port for charging up your smartphone battery or indeed for updating the software.

The connected technology here is highly customizable. Riders can choose between three different electric assist modes -- a City mode that's useful for stop-and-go traffic, a self-explanatory Hill mode and a Standard mode that gives you motor assist that's proportional to your physical effort.

The Wi-Bike is a great option for urban riders who find themselves in different kinds of traffic situations and like to be able to adapt their ride on the go for maximum convenience.
