AUDI’s e-BIKE – Need for speed

Posted on: January 23rd, 2013 by Mr Roaming 13 Comments

It seems that everyone these days has gotten bike fever: biking for fun, cycling for pleasure, riding to work.  But just when we thought a bike could not be reinvented, Audi has pulled a rabbit out of a hat.  A bike that can reach 80 km per hour if its rider pedals and 46 km per hour if the biker simply wants to cruise without any exertion.  Defeats the purpose?  Maybe.  Provides flexibility?  Most definitely.  The price?  Well, let’s just say it costs a little more than the Chinese-made Schwinns.  Afterall, it’s not your grandfather’s bicycle.

    I saw this bike at an expo in Germany. It looked amazing. I wonder if it will ever go in production. Very cutting edge roaming.

    I wonder whether this kind of bike will gain some traction in biker friendly cities like SF, DC or Charleston.

    This kind of bicycle – a premium bike certainly has a future in a time where manual transportation is more and more ever-present. Thank you for being an advocate in this day and age of gas guzzlers.

    And another beautiful mode of transportation. Who knows what this will look like to readers 80 years from now? Probably the same way that the antique cars of your other article looks to us now.

    Audi is an amazing design company – this bike should earn a design award for beauty, functionality, simplicity and high-tech advancements. Great find MRR!

    Is this an electronic bike? You are seeing more and more of these all the time in Amsterdam. But this one come at a great price – over 5.000 euros! Amazing.

      Thank you for your comment. Indeed it is a incredible bike with a very sophisticated design. I don’t think it’s electronic tho.
