M55 Beast bike revs its silent engine

Can an electric bike look good enough to warrant a second mortgage? M55 thinks it can. We agree

M55’s Beast looks like something Tony Stark would nip down to his local on, but there’s also a fair bit of tech beneath the menacing angular exterior. The 90 per cent efficient electric motor can hit 77kph and kicks in to gear when your pathetically fleshy mortal legs have gone kaput.


Throw in the Brembo brake pads (previously only used on F1 cars) and you begin to see where the gargantuan €25,555 price tag comes from. The first editions will be limited to just 1,000 models and can be taken for a spin at this year’s Top Marques exhibition in Monaco. See you in the queue.
