Electrically powered bikes are the future with regards to urban transportation and now German designers Tom Mudra and Hans-Tobias Schicktanz have brought the funk with The Mosquito.

According to the designers, “Our aim was to create a lightweight and attractive E- Bike suitable for urban places. The motor is powered by lithium batteries which cost about 50p to charge. The Mosquito has got a range of about 60 km (37 miles) with a maximum Speed of 50 km/h (31 miles).”

Adding to this, most of The Mosquito’s parts are readily available at conventional bike shops, allowing for easy maintenance and repair. Plus it looks super cool.
