The company said that the innovation is called NeoBolt, and it has been designed to help “wheelchair users” move around cities without being dependent on anyone. NeoBolt is an all-terrain battery-powered motorbike.
The motorised machine can be detached and reattached to the wheelchair, making life easier for the differently abled to commute.
Reacting to the post, many netizens said it was a great and thoughtful innovation for the differently abled. People using these bikes also shared their experiences.
Entry of such innovation in market would be a great support to such people!
