Behold: the Vinci – an e-bike prototype designed by mechanical engineer and industrial designer Enzo Prathamesh, currently funding via Kickstarter.
The aluminium-alloy top frame tube houses an LED headlight and brake light cluster along with a 48v, 15Ah lithium battery mounted under the seat which powers a 750w rear hub-mounted motor. Charge is good for 50km of throttle-only riding, or up to 80km of pedal-assist at 32km/h (eco) and 56km/h (sport mode).
There’s a colour LCD in the tube indicating speed and charge, a seven-speed drivetrain Shimano gearset, front and rear suspension and fat Kenda tires.
Yours to preorder for $1,150 (€980)
