The bike has a 250W electric motor powered by a lithium ion battery under the bottom bracket. There’s also an onboard computer and a choice of cycling ‘modes’ including ‘eco’, ‘tour’, ‘sport’ and (ahem) ‘speed/turbo’.

No word on price or release date as yet, but the first 1000 units will be sold only in Germany.

The bike’s non-electric 2009 predecessor is currently on special offer at €700.
