Croatian Electric Bike On The Market

I decided to quickly throw this in for a couple of reasons. The one article link talks about the attached video in regards to the tongue in cheek Croatian bikini chicks in the spot for the bike, you know, about sex and advertising, all that.  How it's a very common theme these days, which is used to sell practically everything you see on television.  From soft drinks to hair conditioner...from beer to potato chips....from toothpaste to jeans.....from vitamins to coffee.....from cheeseburgers to "Depends" leakage proof undergarments..etc..etc. So the one video is sort of a continuation of my previous post about the anniversary of the bikini, which you can check out Here.  I just have some constructive criticism about the Bioplanet Bike spot, I would have instead used the Croatian Mig-21 pictured below as part of the background, but that's just me.

...Secondly, the idea behind this bike is pretty cool I think. You can hit the links or Google for more about the specs of the bike. Basically though, in the case of Croatia especially, if you've ever gone and traveled along the coast, again especially, then you will have noticed how there are so many great locations, towns and cities that you will go through in a short time. Even taking those scenic routes you still have new paved roads to travel on. A bike like this would be perfect for those shorter jaunts, to avoid the parking fees etc. The cost of the bike which may at first seem like a large amount for an electric bike, is actually about the standard price for these kinds of bikes.  I looked around for comparison and even found that some of the higher quality professional racing style bikes are hitting five thousand bucks and even more  believe it or not. Although again, If one was to get one on this side of the pond, I wouldn't recommend leaving it unlocked outside while you quickly step into your local 7-11, Taco Bell or Krispy Kreme donut store, if you know what I mean.
