Earlier this year, ICON 4×4 teamed up with Vintage Electric to produce the ICON Electric Flyer, which proved a big hit with the Internet crowd. Vintage Electric is now increasing production and the color palette, offering this badass electric bike in five different colors.
The Vintage Electric E-Tracker, as its now called, can be recharged in just two hours from a standard outlet, giving it a range of 30 miles and a top speed of up to 36 MPH. That’s actually faster than the autonomous Google Car, though all this old school cool comes at a cost. You’ll have to shell out $4,500 to get on board an E-Tracker, making it more of a scooter alternative than anything. I’d rather ride this, that’s for sure.
If the price still seems intimidating, consider also that you don’t need a license, or license plate, insurance, or registration to get on the E-Tracker. Suddenly, that $4,500 sounds a lot more affordable, especially if you consider that by ditching your car, you can save as much as $10,000 a year. Even if you pay cash for the E-Tracker, you’re still $5,500 ahead of the game.
