Modmo, a Saigon-based e-mobility startup, recently launched a powerful electric bicycle, with integrated battery, Bluetooth, GPS and a patented Modular Mounting system called Saigon.
As urban cities are getting more crowded and polluted, statistics have shown a significant growth in the number of people replacing their cars with electric bicycles. Emission- and traffic-free commuting is predicted to be defined by a revolution of two-wheeled electric transport, and the vehicle that leads this revolution will be electric bikes.
With an aim of pioneering the zero-emission two-wheeled electric transport revolution, Modmo is a disruptive e-mobility startup based in Saigon that focuses on design, versatility and superior user experiences through seamless integration of technology.

As Jack did not find what he was looking for in China & Taiwan, he decided to take a spur-of-the-moment trip to Vietnam where he met with a world-leading motorbike factory.
Instead of taking a flight home, Jack stayed in Vietnam and began building a team of capable engineers who, within 8 months, turned 3D designs into a manufacturable product called Saigon.
Designed to be the bike that will replace your car, Saigon is the first-ever fully modular bicycle, adding a whole new level of utility to your ride. Saigon stands out from the crowd with its 17.5Ah Panasonic lithium-ion battery allowing up to 200 km of pedal-assisted cycling per charge.
It uses a fully integrated and removable battery paired with a front 250-watt motor to get you from A to B effortlessly without any sweat. Simple on the outside but high-tech inside, Saigon boasts a handlebar display, GPS for location tracking and Bluetooth for function control via the IOS/Android app.
The front and rear modular mounts allow our range of MODs (modular accessories) to easily slide on/off, letting you customise Saigon into something just for you every ride. MODs in production include; child seat, basket, food delivery boxes and a
