  • Cool, very functional looking. If I had 60000 Euros to get rid of, I’d get one.

  • Dan don´t exaggerate. It´s only 59500, not 60000. 😛
    By the way, very cool bike.

    Ligros says:
  • I like how it has a modern Lamborghini Reventon form to it but a classic almost retro look with the leather clad battery and saddle.

    The integrated lights are a nice idea. I hate having to keep removing lights and putting them back on or forgetting to remove them and worring that someone will for me.

    Wesley says:
  • I enjoyed this read, good job.
