Elmoto E-Bike by Thomas Hentges

Posted in Motorcycles by ferilli on October 2, 2009

The Elmoto E-Bike is a battery-powered bike aimed at urban dwellers seeking alternative transportation options. The E-bike blurs the distinction between bicycle and motorcycle by incorporating an electric motor, suspension, lights, and gauges into a package that uses a bicycle frame and wheels and tires. Designed by Thomas Hentges, it has a 45 mile range with a top speed of 45 km/hr. On average, it takes about 70 cents to fill, which might prove impressive enough to make it a viable transportation option. Additionally, the E-Bike would likely have a lower initial cost than electric or hybrid automobiles that consumers might consider otherwise.
