Although bicycles are probably the most eco-friendly transportation from them all, their biggest drawback is the speed.

PG Bikes is a bicycle manufacturer based in Germany that managed to come up with an electric bicycle, called Blacktrail.

The most interesting fact about the electric bike from the German company is that it is considered to be the fastest bike in the world, being able to reach a top speed of 100km/h.

The bike weights only 19.8 kilograms and is made using a number of advanced materials, including carbon, magnesium and titanium.

It is worth mentioning that its wheels were made using carbon fiber.

The Blacktrail is powered by a CM 48V lithium-ion battery pack. The charging process takes about 150 minutes and then the bike can run 200 kilometers on a single charge.

PG Bikes will produce only 667 models of its electric bicycle and each model will feature its own number.

However, this bicycle has one big disadvantage and that is its price. In order to own a Blacktrail, one should pay 59,500 Euros, which is about $77,000.
