PiCycle - バイク兼用自転車


Another topic of bicycles: It’s motor-driven PiCycle developed by a San Francisco venture company. The aluminium arch frame is definitely unique in design, and the price is reported $2500 which is less than a half of Audi’s. The wheels are 24" front and 26" rear. The wheel base is 113cm long and it seems like a large bike.
As it can be driven by the motor alone without pedaling, it may not be regarded as “motor-assisted” vehicle by definition, and then it is questionable if it is allowed to run the streets in Japan.
