Well-designed, plain, and reasonably priced, the 2011 Halfords Urban Mover U-Sprite Electric Bike takes pride in its specs that are thoughtfully put together. Including battery, this electric bike weighs in at 22kg, which makes it quite lightweight for an e-bike.

The YikeBike is an electric bicycle like no other because of its outrageous design. It definitely has no other peers in the looks department. This eccentric electric bike from New Zealand has a 15 mph speed cap and a six mile range.

Given it’s unique name, the YikeBike is still reliable in traveling, particularly in cemented or flat areas where it works it’s magic. Despite looking like those old penny-farthing bikes from the past, it certainly is and can be considered a work of science.

The Ecodrive Concept Bike is the brainchild of designer Juil Kim, which incorporates signal lights on a bicycle. The bike was entered in the 2010 Seoul Cycle Design Competition and stood out because of its ability to signal when turning. Currently when you are out riding a bicycle, you are advised to use hand signal when making turns to the left or right. However, this requires you to let go of your handlebars.
