The Velocipede Fogliaverde -- Italian for 'green leaf velocipede' -- is a brand new e-bike that doesn't just have a fun name but also provides a one-of-a-kind cycling experience thanks to the unique manner in which it fuses together modern e-bike technology with classic bicycle design.

Currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, this new e-bike makes use of a Zehus Bike+ rear hub, a key inclusion as it allows the bicycle to maintain a natural design. This e-drive offers an extra push at speeds up to 25 km/h.

This Velocipede Fogliaverde well and truly proves that modern e-bike designs do not have to necessitate wackily futuristic aesthetics, and that you can have the best of both worlds by blending time-tested design with futuristic and eco-friendly performance factors.
