YikeBike – The Electric Penny-Farthing of the Future Folds into a Brief Case

yikebikeThat futuristic, lightweight penny-farthing styled bike you see there is the YikeBike.

The groovy-looking electric bicycle slips away flat into a bag little larger than a briefcase or one of those small pop-up festival tents – handy for the commute eh?

The front wheel is driven by an electric motor giving a range of 9km and a top speed of 20km/h.

Apparently the battery can hit 80% charge after a mere 20 minutes.

Check out the video below because even at €3,900 it looks a giggle!

It should be out by the middle of 2010 🙂
