Biiista electric bike nearing launch

Say hello to the Biiista, an electric bike developed by Austrian firm Hammerschmid Maschienebau which is due to be launched soon. With a claimed 60mph top speed and 60 mile range, this futuristic electric bike weighs 140kg and makes 14bhp with 154lbft of torque. Not brilliant figures when compared to the recently unveiled Brammo Empulse R and Mission Motors Mission R. What do...

Is this a hangover from the iPod generation? Or maybe it harks further back to the Sinclair C5? Nasty, looks uncomfortable too.

Side Wind

Looks like it would take off in a stiff side-wind.

Could Be Worse,,,

But you'd have to try very very hard.....

Looks like it would have a better drag coefficient going backwards!!!

But I guess every little step is a bit closer to getting to something we may actually want to ride (or dare to be seen on) in the furure?

Californian eco-trinket

I doubt they've had that out in more than a gentle breeze, or that it's even seen a hill.  Also, good luck getting insurance, and I can't see it taking sane tyres or parts that are available from anybody except the manufacturer, who will be out of business the instant that their fat subsidies run out.  It'll be essentially disposable when the battery pack ceases to hold its charge, or the flux capacitor gives out.

Still, some ecomentals will doubtless enjoy paying way over the odds just so that they can ponce around smugly on their whirring toy for a few months until they get bored of it and go back to their G-Wiz or Prius.

The only upside that I can see is that none of these will be nicked, ever.
