Another luxury e-bike has hit the streets and this one is handmade in Italy. The carbon fiber urban bike from Leaos comes in white or black and features an integrated 11.6Ah Li-ion battery that can be removed for in-home charging. With automatic shifting coming standard and a self-supporting unisex frame, the bicycle's wiring (and chain) is hidden within the frame so you never see any of the inner workings. The handlebar has a integrated display and though there isn't any suspension to speak of, the company promises that the special balloon tires will soak up any bumps found on the street. The e-bike comes in a 25km/h version (reaching 15mph) or a 45km/h (which is classified as a moped), and each one has speed sensors, independent torque and crank speed. The price starts at €4,980 ($6,797), but rises with every additional feature you choose, like adding gloss to the frame or a smartphone holder.
