The eRockit boasts an 8,000 watt electric motor that can propel the vehicle at over 80 km/h. The rider controls speed and acceleration through the motion of the pedals, giving the bike a bicycle-like feel but with a big kick. Founder and company CEO Stefan Gulas says the bike retails for between EUR 13,000 and EUR 16,000, depending on the battery capacity and that he expects production next year to reach 300 bikes annually.
