Anyone who drives to work will be well aware and scornful of the cyclists that pass them on the city streets, and the perfect solution has become the YikeBike. The electric scooter requires little effort on the part of the rider, who can sit back and hold on as if he was en route in his car.

Priced down to $3,600, the YikeBike is now finally available for purchase after touring the world in 2009 and visiting the 2010 London Gadget Show. The YikeBike is completely foldable, capable of driving 6.2 miles on one charge and can reach speeds of 14 mph. This 22-pound electric bike goes light on structure so it can go heavy on efficiency.
