Where exercise meets world renowned German-engineering, you get the Bavarian Electric Touring Bicycle. Made from the finest components available, this electric bicycle is designed after the 1930’s BMW R61 motorcycle. With its 48-volt Lithium-Ion battery, 17 mph top speed, 330 lbs weight capacity and 125 mile range, this electric bicycle really does allow for some serious touring. Use the 5-speed hub gear system to power up hills and get you where you need to be. At the center of this bike is the unique aluminum and carbon-fiber frame; which is so artistic, I’m not sure if you should ride this bike or display it in art gallery.
