Electric bikes are catching up these days. Thanks to the eco-friendly bikers out there, the electric bike is not considered geeky anymore, but fashionable. Here is another bike on the market by M55 called ‘The Beast’. People have said that it isn’t a very good looking bike. I beg to differ though. I agree that there is scope to make the design a little less ‘heavy’. But otherwise I think it isn’t so bad.
The motor power and battery capacity of ‘the beast’ is supposed to be better than the current industry standards. The manufacturers say that though it may look like a downhill bike, it is not. It can climb up very well. This bike can attain top speeds upto 40 miles per hour. Thanks to its onboard polymer Li-ion battery this bike can go as far as 75 miles on a single charge. Weighing in at 33 Kg, it is quite heavy for a bike, but then it is an electric bike.
It is made of 7075 Aluminum, combined with Fox 36 160 Talas Fit RLC Fork, Brembo front and rear brakes, Syncros FR saddle, Syncros Meathook, Syncros Carbon Seat post, KMC X1 chain and Rohloff twist shifter. Not so bad I would say.
