Look­ing like a steam­punk pas­tiche of mod­ern min­i­mal­ism and in­dus­trial crafts­man­ship, this aero­dy­namic elec­tric bi­cy­cle can push you along at speeds up to 58km/h, no mat­ter how heav­ily laden with style it is. The slick V1 elec­tric bike will be the first crowd­fund­ing cam­paign from the Poland-based startup Avionics, so there’s al­ways the risk that the ap­peal of this wood-trimmed elec­tric bike will only be skin deep. But if the 120km range, ‘ brake en­ergy re­cu­per­a­tion’ tech and 203mm rear disc brakes make it onto the fin­ished prod­uct like Avionics is claim­ing, then the V1 could be as cool as the Bat­pod.
