M55 Beast Bike: The Veyron of Bikes

My fellow menreporter Nick just wrote an article about oil prices going up like crazy because some people in the Middle East can’t keep their shit together. Fortunately for me I’m not effected by any of this because I solely live behind my computer.

But if you are one of those green guys that has the need to go green on every aspect of your life, not because it’s good for the environment, but because it is the latest trend and you will save gas money, I have a green ‘thing’ to add too your wish list. It’s called the M55 Beast Bike. It’s an electric bike, or hybrid if you will. It’s pretty much over the top and utterly expensive. The base model will set you back about $33.500.

Do you green guys want one? Yes! Do I want one? Hell yeah, I don’t even move during the day but I’ll just park it next to my computer and look at it. The Beast’s frame is made from CNC milled 7075 aluminum, fitted with carbon fiber plates to hide the batteries, wiring and motor. Like a hybrid vehicle, the motor provides supplemental torque to enhance the riders own output; that said, it’ll still take you 27 miles on full throttle, should you get too lazy to pedal. Top speed is a more-than-sufficient 48 miles per hour, and components are best in class. Brembo twin-piston brakes? Check. Rohloff Speedhub gearing? Check. Fox front fork? Also, check. Oh and last but not least you can charge it up to 80% capacity in about 15 minutes.
