Electric bicycles are supposed to be the transportation saviour of mankind living in urban areas. However most attempts at these products, have been aesthetic nightmares – they just look rubbish, especially the for desiring something with automatic door operators. While looking for e-bikes the other day, we came across something that looked better than anything we could have imagined.  Introducing the PG-Bikes BT-01 Blacktrail.

When the German based PG-Bikes sets out to build an electric bike, they don’t mess around. Although this technically is an electric bicycle, in some regions it may have to registered it as a motorcycle.

Constructed of lightweight carbon fiber, aerospace aluminum, titanium and magnesium, the BlackTrail BT-01 travels up to 100km/h with a 1.2 kilowatt motor embedded in its 20kg frame, and can carry you across 200kms on a single 2.5-hour charge. Manufactured by some guys in Germany called UBC who make stuff for Formula 1 cars. Amazing, yes. But the amazingness doesn’t come cheap. This is the fastest and most expensive electric bicycle in the world.

They are limiting production to 667 limited pieces will cost €59,500. Which, by the way, is about three times the price of a Ducati 1098.

Well, at least you can drool at the pictures and the video.
