Due next year, the Axle Group EV-X7 is a magnetic-motor-driven eco bike that propels you 110 miles on one charge. Priced at $2,100, the eco bike is destined to generate the attention you deserve.

Over at PES Wiki, one reader noted, "Construction of a small size high power motor is a good technical achievement. Most electric motors today operate at over 95% efficiency; thus, there is not really much room for efficiency improvement. However, a good electrical coupling between a high storage capacity battery and such a motor can provide remarkable mileage for a scooter. Thus, while this is not earth shattering, it is certainly good engineering."

Pictures of the bike first popped up a year ago, but the pending release is driving a renewed interest in the bike.
