toto design: mosquito bike

german designers tom mudra and hans-tobias schicktanz combined together as toto design to realize
projects like the electric mosquito bike. the vehicle is a lightweight electric bike designed for the urban
environment. the motor is powered by inexpensive lithium batteries that give the bike about a 60 km range
with maximum speed of up to 50 km/h. the bike a has a removable centre pole to make mounting easier for
riders of all ages and ability. the motor and batter are housed in the body and can be covered with a variety
of materials making the bike customizable. because most of the parts are standard bike parts, repairs are
easy and inexpensive. the bike is already in small production and should be available next year.
