Shanghai Customs have created a new upgrade to a classic motorbike with the eCUB2. The retro shape is that of the classic Honda Super Cub vehicle and the company have now added an electric addition to the car in the form of a hub-mounted 1000 watt electric motor.

This comes with a removable Panasonic lithium-ion battery pack, rear disc brake, customisable seat, 3 available foot-peg positions, LED head and tail lights as well as a mount for your smartphone. Shanghai Customs will be selling the eCUB 2 from mid-April and you can find out more information from its website.
