Dutch electric bike maker VanMoof unveiled updated versions of its e-bikes, along with higher prices due to supply chain constraints. 

New features include LED displays on the handlebars that provide information on battery levels and speed, a torque sensor in the motor that adjusts the level of assistance based on how hard the rider pushes against the pedals, and a step-in frame option that makes it easier for riders to mount and dismount. With a base price of $2,998, the VanMoof S5 and A5 also come at a more than 20% price increase over their predecessors, the S3 and X3, which sell for $2,448.
