Bulcato's new Albero electric bike will get you anywhere in the city
Spanish motorcycle manufacturer Bultaco - which has recently enjoyed a new relaunch itself - has announced that a new electric- and pedal-driven hybrid ‘Moto Bike’ is on its way. The Bultaco Albero is designed for urban commuting and features zero emission propulsion combined with pedal power as a cross between an electric motorcycle and bicycle.
With plenty of electric propulsion (60 Nm maximum torque, 45 km/h maximum speed), this nippy little cafe racer is the perfect way to scoot around the city without worrying about making any more dents in your carbon footprint. There's no confirmation on price just yet (opens in new tab), but expect it to be in the thousands when it is finally unveiled.
