Velorapida was created in 2013 by two friends looking for a good solution to move around town fast and easily, with a good balance between design and technology, innovation and tradition. From this idea they managed to join their passion with their needs: featuring elegance and style in an electric bike. The idea to hide the battery in the front leather bag was the winning solution. During our collaboration the original idea was redesigned including the front light in the leather bag giving it a retro look.

Making of

Each Velorapida Limited Edition for Yvé is made focused on quality and passion for detail, following the world renowned tradition of Italian manufacturers integrated with innovation, safety and reliability. The result of the collaboration between Yvè and Velorapida is a new, fast and elegant bicycle with vintage flair produced by an Italian manufacturer with 90 years of experience in bike manufacturing. 

Velorapida was born in response to the desire to get around the city fast and easily, striking a balance between design and technology, innovation and tradition. From this standpoint comes the idea of concealing the battery in the front leather bag – truly a winning solution. During the collaboration with Yvé, the original idea was redesigned to include the front light in the leather bag, to add that extra retro look to the bike. 

Thanks to the 250w motor that allows 5 different speed, the bike can get up to 25km per hour and lets you keep the pace for a 60km route. All models are equipped with an LCD display, useful to monitor the speed, adjust it when needed and check the mileage; it also comes with a 2-speed automatic SRAM transmission and a wireless system that stops the engine when brakes are activated. And the wheels are hand-reinforced, stainless steel spokes. 

With Velorapida, riders can decide the degree of electrical assistance they need and then choose the effort level. Needless to say that it can also be used as a normal bicycle: just turn off the pedal assistance system and voilà.
