The Vancouver-based company said its Exro system can produce significant performance gains when integrated into an e-Bike's existing electric drivetrain.
By expanding the operating parameters of the motor, Exro's engineered technology provided a torque increase of greater than 25% for the Motorino e-bike resulting in a corresponding increase in acceleration of greater than 25%.

"This should be of major interest to the electric vehicle industry, which is clearly becoming vital to our global transportation networks," said Exro CEO Sue Ozdemir in a statement. "In fact, it should be of interest to anyone who uses electric motors."
Ozdemir was appointed to the top post in September, after serving as CEO of General Electric Company’s (NYSE:GE) Small Industrial Motors Division, which under her leadership was successfully sold to China's Wolong Electric, one of China's largest motor manufacturers, in July 2018.
Ozdemir's primary initiative at Exro is to commercialize the patented Exro system to optimize electric motors in global sectors such as transportation, agriculture, heavy industry, energy, construction, recreational vehicles, and others.
"Our on-time delivery of the Exro-powered e-Bike, in our partnership with Motorino, is another major milestone in the path to commercialization of this disruptive technology," said Josh Sobil, chief commercial officer of Exro.
"Our goal is to revolutionize the performance of electric motors around the world with Exro: to make them operate faster, stronger and last longer."
Motorino, which also based in Vancouver, will now perform extensive field tests on the Exro-enhanced e-bike to confirm Exro's preliminary results.
