Bugatti X PG Craft Carbon Fiber Bicycle That Weighs Just 5 KG
bugatti have teamed up with german luxury bicycle manufacturer PG to create a bike that at just 5 KG, takes the title of the lightest special urban bike in the world. the creation, dubbed simply as the PG bugatti bike, embodies bugatti’s distinctive design reputation with all frame cross sections having been optimized for the aerodynamic demands of high speed riding. the streamlined creation was first debuted on the bugatti stand at geneva motor show 2017.
the Bugatti X PG bike is made of 95 percent carbon fibre, with the frame, fork, rims, handlebars, seat, crank and brake all made by italian carbon experts merelli. such parts have been handcrafted using pre-preg materials and methods unique to the automobile and aeronautic industries. only 667 models of the exclusive bike will be produced, and upon request, existing bugatti owners will be able to have their bicycles hand-customized in the PG bugatti showroom in weinstadt to perfectly match their cars.
‘we had the vision of building the ultimate bicycle to go with the ultimate car; ultimate in design, workmanship and performance’ explains PG CEO manuel ostner. the bike pays homage to bugatti company founder ettore bugatti, who also designed a bike. stylistic inspiration has been drawn from ettore’s original design, whilst the choice of materials such as carbon and aluminum are deep rooted into bugatti’s existing supercars. the limited edition ride is set to retail with a huge $39,000 price tag, bringing the possibility of owning a bugatti to those who can’t fork out 2.7 M dollars for the chiron.
