German bicyle manufacturer PG Bikes has introduced 'Blacktrail,' the world’s fastest electric bike. The bicycle has a maximum speed of 100 km/h (around 62 miles per hour). PG Bikes will produce a limited-edition run of 667 individually-numbered Blacktrail bikes.

PG Bikes' Blacktrail bike is powered by a CM 48-volt lithium-ion battery, which takes about two and a half hours to charge. The bike's frame is made from carbon, magnesium, titanium, and high alloy aluminum, and the bicycle rides on carbon fiber wheels.
