£25K for a German's electric bike? Who won the war, anyway?
Just what does the future of transport look like? An air-powered motorcycle? A solar-powered pyramid car? A jetpack that means strapping two fans to your back? No, it's a bicycle. And a motorcycle. Sort of. Admittedly, it's one that goes 50 miles an hour, but it's a bicycle nevertheless.
The E-Rockit is powered by an electric motor, the speed of which is controlled by the rate of pedalling. Watch the video is see the two-wheel gestalt entity in action and an interview with its inventor, a very camp German who can't believe how insanely funny his own voice is:
