ICON announces the 'ICON E-Flyer Electric Bicycle' that fuses old and new in an electric bicycle. This cycle captures the classic elegance of board racer bikes of World War I and merges it with modern-day EV technology. It takes inspiration from the beginning stages of the motorcycle, and each one is handmade with an EV system that reaches up to 35 miles of sustained propulsion.

ICON's bike also features regenerative braking due to state-of-the-art battery power and a power gauge to indicate when to pedal. This bicycle makes a bold statement of how time has progressed in manual transportation since the early 20th century.

ICON reinvents an icon by taking an old model and improving its performance.
