I am not a visionary if I say that I see a medium-term future with many two-wheeled vehicles that move thanks to batteries, to day today we can see great examples of motorcycles and bikes with pedaling assistance. The technology is, what does not accompany so much is the price, which is too high in both cases.
Everything will move, but while this happens it is well what the big bike manufacturers think. Today we present a concept of Canyon, a German company well known at the level of competition, and increasingly required by the general public (despite selling their bikes online). Not long ago we taught you that they played with bikes connected, now is the time to think about electric bikes.
The protagonist of our history is called Canyon Orbiter and is a work of the industrial designer Daniel Frintz, with the consequent supervision of Canyon.
It is striking to find ourselves with a vision somewhat different from what is already appearing in the market: either they are normal bikes with the addition of the electrical part, or they try to camouflage something more, but in no case we see that it is bet by a design so aggressive.
Two engines, one on each wheel
Who says aggressive, says something more associated with mountain bikes. But no, this is not a bike for that, it is a bike that is designed to be used in a city-or mixed use-, hence our attention. Of course, the potholes will eat them well, as it carries total suspension, with the front solution in inverted format.
Another detail that makes it different is the implementation of two engines, one on each wheel axle. As you can see in the recreations, everything is very clean, and at the same time very little exposed, with little maintenance.
The aesthetics of the concept is spectacular, the most striking I've seen on an electric bike, but also uses design lines that quickly relate to Canyon. Again, this is a design exercise in which we can be anticipating things, is not any product that will be sold in the short term.
