Bikes Electric Cars


Mechanical engineer and industrial designer Enzo Prathamesh’s Vinci e-bike is as functional as it is stylish, aiming to stand out from the crowd with its unique design. The aluminum-alloy top frame tube houses an LED headlight and brake light along with a 48v, 15Ah lithium battery. Mounted under the seat, the battery powers a 750w rear hub-mounted motor good for 30 miles of throttle-only riding, or up to 50 miles of pedal assist. A color LCD in the tube gives speed and battery info, with up to 25 MPH available in Eco Mode, and 35 MPH in Sport Mode. The Vinci has a seven-speed drivetrain Shimano gearset, front and rear suspension, and rides on fat Kenda tires, with a total weight of just 70 pounds.
