Hybrid vehicles are popping up like Charlie Sheen headlines. You can’t go about your daily business without seeing one. If you’re going to get your hands on a hybrid, make it a good one. And why not throw fitness into the mix with self-propulsion? Well, M55 builds their bikes around that whole idea. Their flagship M55 Beast is truly that, with a design like no other bike you’ve seen. Using lightweight and ultrastrong 7075 Aluminum and full suspension, the bike is as versatile as it is unique. They integrated Lithium-Ion 44V batteries into the electric motor, which produces assisted pedal speeds of almost 50 mph. The Beast is designed for off-road and urban use and will make optimal use of the electric motor as you pedal, automatically kicking in when it senses
excessive wheezing you need extra torque. And a bicycle first are the automotive-origin Brembo brakes that will stop you with authority. Every 55th bike will be a special edition and come with a unique paint job. For the price, it should also come with cupholders and a DVD player.
Price: $35,555 (Spring)
