I prefer to let the designers and builders of this small jewel explain it themselves, so head over to the APWorks website to learn all about the “Light Rider” – or perhaps even order one? It costs just 50.000 €, after all ;-)
It looks more or less like a bicycle, it weighs hardly more than an e-bike, but it tops out at 80 kmh, so it’s not a toy! It will certainly be interesting to see the next generation of this bike. Wired writes:
“… the Light Rider isn’t meant to be ridden through the Alps. At least not yet. The team is working on another version that will be able to go faster and farther.“
In the mean time, I’ll will try and plan a trip to the mountains with my current bike. Or perhaps I should move to München, to be closer to APWorks and the Alps?
