Several manufacturers showcased their military e-bikes at an arms fair in London recently. The bikes can be pedaled but are assisted by a powerful electronic motor. The handlebars are equipped with a mount for guns. Denmark, the UAE, and an undisclosed European NATO member have reportedly already agreed to purchase several bikes. Similar bikes exist for civilian purchase, but the military versions have wider tires, stronger engines and longer ranges aside from the weapons modifications. “It is ideal if you need to go those final miles where you can’t use a larger vehicle but still need the assistance of a machine” said the director of sales for one of the featured manufacturer.
