Italjet unveils vintage looking Ascot electric bike at Italian bike show
Italjet, Italian manufacturer of two-wheelers founded in 1959 is well known for building motorcycles and thermal scooters. However, from past couple of years the company has shifted its focus to the creation of electric bike models. Currently, the Italian brand offers three models of electric bikes: Diablo, Savana and Eagle which are also exported to 50 other countries. Now again, Italjet has come up with a new model named Ascot, which was unveiled at Italian bike show EICMA in Milan few days back. Designed in collaboration with New Yorkers Spalding & Bros, the Ascot electric bike comes fitted with a Brooks saddle.
Carrying a vintage look, the bike features nice upholstery leather with chrome elements and has taken inspiration from interwar period. The handle, seat and the pocket to slide the battery are decorated with quality leather, and along with the knucklehead headlight and wheel spokes adds to the retro look of the bike. Weighing only 24 kg, all thanks to its sleek design, the 250 watts motor offers 50 km range and top speed of 24km/h. The price of the Ascot electric bike from Italjet has not been revealed yet.
