This gorgeous Avionics electric bike prototype mixes modern technology with the classic style of early gas-powered motorcycles.
With a maximum speed of 36 miles an hour and a range of 75 miles, what really sets this apart is the beautiful woodworking that harkens back to the heady days of homemade and custom-built motorcycles in the early 20th century.
The front lamp, just like the other wooden components, is made from the wood of the exotic tree, Jatoba. This is extremely hard and difficult to process, being a precious wood that is as strong as steel. Oiling and time develop its exceptional character. The color is deeper and the grains are more visible. Every single bike has a name with a dedicated, unrepeatable lamp. The golden, warm light she emits makes night riding enjoyable and safe.
Preorders start next month. Details at the Avionics site (note: autoplaying audio).

There are a lot of different language apps out there because nobody learns anything the same exact way – especially not something as complex as a new language.
