An Austrian built an electric bike that looks like an irate ladybug
The electric revolution has been gaining momentum in motorbikes for a while now, but let’s just say it’s still cutting-edge enough to require some pretty avant-garde styling to get noticed.
The Johammer’s main claim to fame – other than the bodywork, which looks a bit like an art-deco toaster – is its claimed range, finally topping the 200km mark. That’s nearly 125 miles, which is quite a distance to go on a tiny battery pack.
The J1’s electric motor is bolted to the rear wheel, leaving the space under the rider free for batteries, suspension components, and all the ancillaries.
Doing 75mph on battery-powered Tumi luggage looks like a hoot to us. Where do we sign?
