The Hummingbird Prodrive Electric Bike has a weight of just 23lb (or 10.4kg) which means that it will be extremely easy to port about when not in use such as when you get onto a busy train and need to reduce down the size by folding it up. The innovative design of this magnificent looking ride, coupled with the fact it is an electric bike really does make it an impressive machine and one that will be very appealing to those commuters that find space at a premium.

With a motor that you operate with a pedal-assist drive and which the rider activates by carrying out three backpedal revolutions after getting speed up to 5 mph. Once you’ve done this, the motor will then adjust the amount of assistance based on the rider input and will also close itself down automatically after two minutes of inactivity. The Hummingbird Prodrive Electric Bike boasts a top speed of 15.5 mph (25 km/h) and delivers just under 19 miles (30 km) of electric-assisted range. And perhaps best of all, the battery will be fully charged in just two and a half hours.
