NOVUS / electric powered bike


NOVUS connects the agility and compactness of a city bicycle and the performance of a motor scooter.
It was designed for more and more to trend growing ecological lifestyle of
design-couscious and future-oriented target groups and is fitted to the demands of the urbane space.
With its electric Wheel hub engine NOVUS offers modern and ecology-minded kind of locomotion.
The focus of design was on the connection of creation and construction.
Strictly reduced to the essentials the frame represents the main design attribute and is also the central supporting element. The chassis fits into design and creates a holistic look.
