Tempo Introduces eFleet for Rental Programs


Tempo bicycles is excited to announce eFleet, the industry’s first electric bike program designed specifically for rental fleet and bike tour operators.

In addition to introducing the new 2018 line of Tempo hybrid ebikes being showcased at Interbike 2017, Tempo Bicycles is also unveiling its eFleet™, America’s first electric bike program designed specifically for rental fleet and bike tour operators. eFleet operators can order Tempo’s popular step-through Santa Barbara and its stylish stand-over Carmel models in over 40+ custom color choices and with on-bike branding and advertising options.

Easy & Comfortable

Tempo eFleet bikes offer many advantages for rental fleet operators to increase revenue, improve customer satisfaction and lower operating costs. Stylish design and precision engineered for comfort, Tempo eFleet bikes are equipped with premium, best-in-class components — from powerful and quiet 350W mid-drive motors to ergonomic saddles and grips. These eFleet bikes also feature a full automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) that automatically shifts based on the rider’s pedaling cadence. Riders don’t need to understand shifting, they just pedal and enjoy their ride —  making these bikes the easiest and smoothest to ride. That means less time spent showing riders how to use the bikes and higher customer satisfaction.


Reliable & Maintenance-free

A sealed transmission and Gates Carbon Belt Drive means zero maintenance, no chains to oil and no derailleurs to repair or adjust. Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires are highly puncture resistant to ensure that riders keep rolling. Tempo’s patent-pending, fast charging battery can be charged in under an hour, 3 to 4 times faster than competing bikes. Tempo eFleet bikes minimize maintenance and maximize uptime so that the bikes spend more time on the road making money and less time in the shop.

“Electric bikes are the fastest growing segment of the rental and tour market,” said Vân Nguyen, Tempo’s Founder and President, “We felt it was the right time to introduce a program tailored to the needs of rental fleet and bike tour operators. Our no hassle auto-shifting and zero maintenance belt drive ebikes has huge appeal to operators who want simple, reliable electric bikes that are easy to ride and maintain.”

Napa River Velo owner Duke Tuchman agrees, “We’ve been renting traditional bicycles in Napa Valley for almost 10 years. We wanted to test the water with electric bikes so we added a few Tempo ebikes to our rental program last season. Based on that initial success, we’ve increased the number of Tempo ebikes in our fleet this season. Our customers love the auto-shifting feature and it makes the bikes so simple to explain, even for novice riders. The Tempo brand also fits with the upscale nature of Napa Valley and our clientele.”
