I want one... I can't afford one, or maybe I don't want to try to justify one! The craziest ebike we are likely to see! A must read! (There aren't enough exclamation points available for this one!!!)

"In terms of its electric drive, the DRT packs a 4-kW motor, a 14-speed Rohlof Speedhub and a SmeshGear transmission. At low speeds, motor output is managed by a pedelec system aimed at maintaining an ideal blend of pedal assistance and battery usage. You won't necessarily want to be pedaling when gunning for the top speed of 43.5 mph (70 km/h), so there's also a right-handlebar throttle for cranking up motor power alone. The motor can send up to 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque to the rear wheel." Read more here.

Very cool. I can't wait until our military starts buying them at $750,000 each...but that will include the optional Isis decoder ring, lol.

I'd rather have a Bomber & 15K in precious metals. This is a bike for someone that needs to show off their excesses, park it next to their Ferrari and take selfies with their Leica limited edition camera. Besides it folds! ;) As far as military applications, doubt it will sell. Since when is the military industry concerned about the environment? Nice engineering project, impractical retail product. Tnx 4 da link. -S

The military is indeed interested in stealth - would you want to ride this or a gas motor bike under the cover of dark somewhere you're not supposed to be? I'm sure you're spot on with the environment though!

But, but, but Shea.... it will go up a hill!!!:confused:

It is more along the lines of climbing a hill I probably wouldn't want to climb with my own 2 legs, hahaha.

Trefecta reports that since starting production in March 2015, they've sold 500 bikes at $25000.00 each. If they keep that up, they'll be making real moneyo_O
