the idea for the bike came to marc simoncini in the spring of 2017 when he asked ‘what if we created the best electric bike in the world?’ after enlisting the help of ora ito, the pair went on to create a beautiful streamlined design made from aluminium and carbon.

  • What price point is this beautiful bike in Australia/Sydney? And does it come with accessories like a basket for a laptop bag?

  • That has a very pleasant shape! I hope that ‘jet-pak’ below the seat is removable, however. It is one of the first bikes presented here, that I would consider buying …simply because it looks nice. Good one.

    I just read the description – it’s electric. No. I would want to pedal it. I am one of those who still cut their own grass. I do not need someone/thing to pedal a bike for me.
