Leather-Upholstered E-Bikes

The Cykno Bicycle is Luxuriously Cloaked in Fine Animal Hide

— April 11, 2013 — Autos
Since the very recent introduction of the Cykno Bicycle, there is no longer such a thing as being too classy or sophisticated to ride a bike. Very much unlike your average two-wheeler, this one boasts an assembly of some very fine materials that make it both remarkably durable and undoubtedly fashionable.

Components of aluminum and carbon fiber make up the monocoque frame, giving it strength and sturdiness. Below the elegant, cantilevered stainless-steel seat, the Italian electric bicycle houses a 250/500 watt motor that can drive 60 kilometers on a four-hour charge of its lithium battery.

At a solid 26 kilograms in weight, the Cykno Bicycle asserts is presence with prominence. Riccardo Lorenzini, Bruno Greppi, Gianpietro Vigorelli and Luca Scopel finished this fine specimen with a covering of high-quality leather in brown or black.
