In the automobile world, there are cars, and then there are works of art: Ferrari, Porsche, BMWs, to name a few. M55 Bike, a manufacturer based in Hungary, isn’t just setting out to create an electric bike in the M55 Bike EVO-001: it’s aiming to create the Ferrari of e-bikes.
The black-and-silver beauty consists of a one-piece aluminum frame, an integrated battery pack, and a centrally mounted motor placed low down on the bike for better stability. M55 will offer two versions of the EVO-001: one with a 250W motor, and another with an offroad-oriented 1300W motor. According to Diseno-art, “neither bike features a manual accelerator, the motor speed is controlled by the pedals. Pedal harder and the motor works harder too. Ease off and so does the motor.”
The battery pack, developed by A123 Systems, will be identical for both bikes. Speed freaks should opt for the sportier version, which hits a max speed of 43 mph. No matter which you want, you’ll have to act fast once M55 says they’re ready: only 250 of the handmade vehicles will be produced.
