An Electric Bike That Looks Like a Harley

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Electric vehicles—from cars, to scooters, to bikes—all feature fairly conservative designs. But that doesn't have to be the case, as the Marrs Cycles demonstrates with its beautiful M-1 e-bike that looks like a cross between an old style bicycle and a modern Harley Davidson chopper.

With its smallest lithium battery pack the M-1 has a range of about 20 miles with a top speed of 20 mph. The bike could actually go faster than that, but over in the US, it's hamstrung by laws that limit the speeds of electric bicycles. And while the M-1 seems to be the perfect eco-friendly commuter, like the Segway, it's unfortunately burdened with an incredibly hefty price tag. The bikes start at £4,500 which can also get you a decent used car, so their popularity will probably be limited to eco-minded types with plenty of disposable income.
