toto design: mosquito bike
German designers Tom Mudra and Hans-Tobias Schicktanz combined together as toto design to realize projects like the electric mosquito bike. the vehicle is a lightweight electric bike designed for the urban environment. The motor is powered by inexpensive lithium batteries that give the bike about a 60 km range with maximum speed of up to 50 km/h.
The bike a has a removable centre pole to make mounting easier for riders of all ages and ability. the motor and batter are housed in the body and can be covered with a variety of materials making the bike customizable.
Because most of the parts are standard bike parts, repairs are easy and inexpensive. The bike is already in small production and should be available next year.
