A year on from the debut of its Lacama electric motorcycle prototype, Milan-based bespoke electric motorcycle manufacturer Italian Volt has released this nifty-looking special edition called The Reunion built on the platform.

Named after Monza's Reunion motorcycle show, it's a futuristic flat track-inspired design with a chopped seat and cruiser-style headlight built on the Lacama platform with its peppy 70-kW (94-hp) electric drivetrain and barrel-chested 15-kWh battery pack.

The bike was presented to Reunion's creator Matteo Adreani, and features some pretty nice blue honeycomb bodywork, as well as a snazzy full-color digital dash with its own internet connection for over-the-air software updates.

Accelerating from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds, on the way to a limited top speed of 180 km/h (112 mph), range is currently around 200 mixed-cycle kilometers (~120 mi), but Italian Volt says it's likely this might be increased in future software updates as further efficiencies in motor control and battery management are identified.

Each Italian Volt bike is tailored to its buyer, and with a number of orders already in the system, the company claims it's on track to start deliveries by the end of this year.

Here's a video of the bike – skip to half way through if (for some reason) you don't want to look at completely irrelevant shots of men drawing things.
