With the exception of electric mountain bikes, most e-bikes tend to be fairly conservative-looking things. We do say "most," however, as the beastly BestiaNera Sport is certainly a head-turner. Made by Italy's TºRed Bikes and designed by Romolo Stanco, it's also one of the world's lightest electrics, tipping the scales at just 9.8 kg (21.6 lb).

"BestiaNera" is Italian for "bugbear" … as in a hobgoblin or boogeyman-type figure. In case the analogy isn't clear enough from the name, just take a look at the ends of its handlebars – the thing's got horns!

More practically, the track-inspired bike also features a monocoque carbon fiber frame, a carbon tri-bladed front wheel, and a carbon disc-covered rear wheel. That back wheel also contains a 30V/160-Wh lithium-ion battery pack and a brushless 250-watt hub motor that augments the rider's pedalling power.

Depending on the amount of electric assistance chosen via an iOS/Android smartphone app, the battery should be good for a range of up to 30 km (19 miles) per charge. A rear regenerative braking system helps stretch that range out, with an SRAM hydraulic disc brake helping to slow things down in front.

Bumps in the road are lessened by TºRed's Shape Memory Alloy Anti Vibration System, which utilizes nickel titanium elements within the carbon frame to reduce vibrations.

Finally, the BestiaNera's name isn't the only scary thing about it – the bike sells for a cool €9,900 (about US$10,920). Along with the Sport model, there's also a differently-spec'd (and lower-priced) Urban version, along with a non-electric track model.

Those pointy handlebar ends had better be rubber plugs, otherwise you're liable to put your eye out or at least gore yourself when you crash.

The regenerativ braking is very worthwhile for long downhills to save brakes and get up next hill. Bike is able to go into office building or regular car. Needs a cheaper mass produced version. This is the best one of these I have seen.

Cutting "La Bella Figura", at 9 grand a pop is just not realistic. Buy a more reasonably priced bike with a very good chain lock and save several thousand for shopping therapy.

Question: does this guy in the one-size-too-small jacket, street shoes and beard actually ride a bike or does he just use it to pick up chicks? That's weird man... As well, get some lights on that thing cause your going to get run over at night. Nice bike though...
