It goes without saying motorcyclists need to have their wits about them, so I’m not entirely sure the Vectrix-i Bike, dubbed the iPod on wheels is a very good idea – not paying attention and distractions = a horrible road accident (you have been warned). Road safety officials have gone out of their way to warn people not to strut their stuff down the street to high decibels of music, so I’m sure they would frown upon a motorbike with a built in iPod, for a bit of motorbike cruising theme music.
The electric Vectrix-i Bike is both iPod and eco-friendly with its high performance zero emissions footprint and integrated iPod wireless audio transmission. With its built in docking station, hi-fi audio transmission and Sennheiser wireless speakers built into the helmet, the Vectrix-i is the world’s firsts fully digital audio bike.
It’s due for release over the next two months for motorcycle loving eco-warriors. And as firsts are never cheap, expect a not so friendly price tag.[via Born Rich]
