Facing another long traffic jam home tonight? Or will you be cramming yourself into a packed train carriage again? Well how about cutting through the traffic on an outstanding electric sports bike instead?
Designed for urban living, the Agility Saietta R Bike combines powerful performance with Hollywood looks. As the specs show, this isn’t simply an exercise in style. Thanks to the Saietta R’s electric motor, the engineers have stripped out all of the bulk that once dictated how a bike should look – letting the design evolve beyond the traditional petrol-driven motorbike shape. The result is a lightweight, environmentally-friendly dream that would give Tron’s lightcycles a run for their money.
There is a large choice of cosmetic finishes. Choose your favourite colours for body, seat and wheels
Dash glows like a TRON lightcycle!
Since it uses battery power over petrol, the bike is incredibly economical to run and creates zero emissions. But don’t let the eco tag fool you. For those expecting a glorified milk cart, the Saietta R will shift from 0 to 60 in just 4 seconds. The ergonomic shape, precision weighting and advanced suspension geometry make for an incredibly stable ride and exceptional manoeuvrability. Suddenly that train carriage is looking stuffier than ever.

I saw a red one of these on the Marlebone Rd last week, and thought it was some prototype with stupid bodywork on it to confuse the press, turns out its a stupid electric bike... 0. 60 in 4 seconds... any bike over 500cc should be able to do that. David Richards, Ilford - 23rd December 2012
Jon from Essex - they are claiming it is zero emission & not carbon neutral there is a difference. Sorry to be pedantic ;).
Firebox - please don't update the site, I'm sure he takes back his comment. Richard, London - 12th December 2012
Those handlebars look a little high and forward. What would it be like to steer? PS Jon from Essex - put rack of batteries in the garage and a solar panel on the roof and you won't ever trouble any power plants. John Park, Cambridgeshire - 11th December 2012
Firebox says: As its purely at the concept stage its hard to say John! But we'd imagine they'd get all the kinks ironed out.
Hi, is this UK Road Legal? Jason, Lincoln - 14th November 2012
Firebox says: Hi Jason. Is it indeed! All you need is your documentation and you're flying
Do you have one of these available for a test ride at your Shoreditch office? I'm located near Finsbury Square.

Firebox says: Sadly not Luke, if we did you can bet your life we'd be driving to work on one every day.
Powerful and beautiful. Very impressed. Tom, London - 1st July 2012
