He is joined by his brother Sohail and brothers-in-law Aayush and Atul Agnihotri and producer Sajid Nadiadwala. All the four enjoy their cycling trip.

A group of boys are also seen riding the e-cycles in the promo video, and Sohail’s elder son Nirvaan is also spotted among them.

“Check it out - #BeingHumanEcycle is here!” Salman wrote as he shared the video.

Addressing the media at the event, Salman said, “People often drop the idea of using cycles when they have to travel long distances because of the effort involved. With the pedal assist and rechargeable motor support Being Human e-cycles make it easy and practical to cycle across both urban and not-so-urban areas.”

The battery-powered e-cycles are available in two variants - BH27 and BH12, in four colours - white, yellow, red and black. Additional variants will be available for sale in a few months. Their prices start from Rs 40,000 for the base model going up to Rs 57,000 for the top model.

These cycles can rode with the help of an on-board battery pack, a riding mode which can be initiated with the flick of a switch. This feature can come in handy in scenarios such as when the rider is approaching a steep climb or simply help in reducing the fatigue of the rider. These cycles do not need any driving license or vehicle registration and is targeted at cyclists of all ages, as the actor's bid towards a greener environment.
