With a top speed of 75 mph, a range between 55 and 86 miles, and a charging time of only four to six hours, the ZecOO is a true e-bike [5], but what makes it stand out is the futuristic, yet retro aesthetic. With its smooth low-rider styling, the ZecOO is sure to grab anyone’s attention. It definitely made headlines at the Tokyo Motorcycle Show, as the Japanese press has been raving about it ever since it was unveiled.

The good news is that the company does plan on producing a limited run of the ZecOO e-bikes [2] with a price tag around $70,000.
