In addition to their smart Fortwo at the Geneva Motorshow 2012, German tuner BRABUS and Smart have also dropped a matching two-wheeler. The Smart BRABUS e-bike has a 500-watt hub motor (double that of a regular smart bike’s) and it weighs more than ten percent less to boast an expected top speed exceeding 25mph. The bike features a fitted four-piston brake system on its front wheel, weight-optimized cranks and pedals, a carbon fiber seatpost, striking green leather grips and saddle, Sport Contact tires, and matte black four-spoke carbon fiber wheels. It also comes with a custom-made iPhone holder and the BionX PL500 system which can be used with or without the throttle. With the throttle grip, the rider chooses from four power levels the degree of electrical assistance desired. Without it, pedal assist automatically pumps in power to increase the rider’s natural rhythm. This high-performance bike also makes use of regenerative braking.
