Derringer Electric Bike

A mini motorcycle inspired by board track racing.

Derringer's board track-style electric bicycle.    

Los Angeles-based Derringer, known for its gas-powered machines, is grabbing a bit more street cred with its new board track-inspired electric bikes.  

Inspired from the board track racing days—when riders turned bikes into mini motorcyles with souped-up engines and sped around circular wooden tracks—the new Derringer has a twist-grip throttle so you can actually rev the engine. Plus, the bikes are completely customizable—you pick the seat and bar styles as well as the colors for the frame, rims, and spokes. Metallic sparkle orange catch your eye? Go for it.

$3,500 to $6,500, derringercycles.com
