Constructed from lightweight carbon fibre and featuring a ‘centre hub’ steering mechanism borrowed from motorcycle technology, the Furia Concept Bicycle, designed by Francesco Manocchio, won this ADI Eccellenze del Design nel Lazio industrial design award.

The Budnitz Model E is the lightest electric bike of its kind, combining an enclosed 250W electric motor (feeding a 30V L-ion 160Wh battery) with a titanium alloy frame, it can cruise at 15mph (24km/h) for 100 miles (160km).

Your wallet will be similarly lightened by $3,950 (€3,500).
