Abstract— The primary objective of the i – Bike is to increase the fuel economy of the vehicle as well as reduce pollution simultaneously. Both IC engine and electric vehicles have their merits and demerits. Now considering a normal two wheeler, it is known tha t maximum fuel wastage occurs during idling and at slow speeds (City traffic riding). On considering an electric two wheeler, it is known that it cannot travel at high speeds and long distances as charging of the battery would be a problem. In order to counteract the demerits of both these vehicles in practicality, the merits of both these vehicles have been incorporated to create an efficient and less polluting automobile, an “INTELLIGENT TWO WHEELER” (i -Bike), which is basically a hybrid.  The i – bike deals with the automatic switching of energies to propel the vehicle based on the speed traveled by the vehicle. It is because of the implementation of an “Intelligent Switching Circuit” (ISC) that the above process is done. By implementing this technology we will be able to save up to 50% of fuel and zero emissions during city speed limits. Thereby increasing engine life and protecting the environment from pollution to a large extent as there are a large number of two wheelers these days.
