Roberta Mutti of Klat Magazine brings to attention the Cykno, a gorgeous, retro-looking and strictly Italian electric bike that charges in 4 hours, has an autonomy of 60 km and weights only 26 kg. Best part, it's almost entirely covered in the finest of leathers.
It is difficult to consider Cykno as a bicycle; Cykno is an eclectic vehicle, which was designed to meet the needs for mobility although maintaining a low environmental impact. Cykno is an exclusive and precious solution for an evolved and conscious clients who is aware of sustainable mobility issues. Vintage style design, innovative and fine materials combined with a precise made in Italy technology and production.
Cykno is the result of an idea a dream of Bruno Greppi, a great engineer and innovator in the motorbike field, in collaboration with the Luca Scopel a designer who is specialized in the development of concept and luxury products. Cykno is the tangible outcome resulting from the collaboration between Gianpietro Vigorelli and Riccardo Lorenzini, gurus of Italian advertising over the past 30 years and through the active participation of some managers of finance.
The above photo was pulled from a series on the Cykno website and was taken by the insanely talented Marco Craig.
