This Futuristic E-Bike Pairs Moto-Inspired Styling with Compact Urban Convenience

With the increasing electrification of motorcycles and the ever-growing popularity of e-bikes, there’s a third class of vehicles starting to take shape. For at the intersection of these two-wheeled worlds sits an interesting hybrid design that combines moto-proven ergonomics with turnkey runabout utility. It’s a category that includes rides like SUPER73’s Z-Series and Phatfour’s FLB line, to name just a few.

And now a new challenger has arrived. Dubbed the ‘Vinci,’ it’s a bike that’s as much a neo-retro cafe racer in style as it is a battery-powered pedal pusher in function. But here’s the thing: the Vinci manages to deliver in a way that’s completely unique and utterly unto its own. For instance, the long cylindrical top tube makes up the bulk of the bike’s chassis, also housing some integrated LED lighting at the front (2,300 lumens) and rear (800 lumens). What’s more, the Vinci hides its 48V fuel cell under the seat, allowing for a tidy, unobtrusive look with enough juice for a solid 60 miles of range. When combined with a 750W geared hub motor and a seven-speed Shimano drivetrain, such a setup is good for a blistering 35mph top speed. Rounded out by a set of alloy wheels wrapped in 20″ Kenda tires, it’s made only better by the plush suspension and powerful hydraulic brakes.

As if that wasn’t enough, though, the Vinci even comes with a color GPS display, a waterproof motion alarm, and a built-in GPS tracker. If you’d like to see it enter production, you can back it on Kickstarter starting at $1,150.
