BMW just unveiled the BMW i8 Special Edition at the Paris Motorshow, and the promotion of the car started along with it. The German automaker also announced a companion, the BMW Cruise e-Bike Protonic Dark Silver, a unique edition e-bike of just 300 units. The highlight of the e-bike is, it comes draped in car’s official color, the Protonic Dark Silver paint finish. They have painted the rims in bright Electric Blue to highlight bike’s athletic character.
E-bike means e-bike, or is it? It is actually a hybrid well equipped to handle motorized pedaling. The “hybrid drive” comes equipped with a 400-Wh battery which supports four modes of pedaling – from (ECO (+ 50%) to TURBO (+ 275%)) and a top speed of 16 mph (25 k/h). Assistance for rough and tough riding, think of riding steep slopes and sprints on the flat terrain, is offered via the 10-gear transmission system.
The recommended price for the BMW Cruise e-Bike Limited Edition is €3,500.00 ($3,900). Each bike comes with a certificate of authenticity and a special badge. The bike available at selected BMW retail partners as well as at BMW online store.
