Battistinis, Factor 001 now available at Harrods . . . . .

Battistinis, Factor 001 now available at Harrods . . . . .

Some months back we had news on the Factor 001, dubbed as the "world's most advanced bicycle" is now being made available to the general public and have since watched it evolve into what it is today.

It may be powered by a pair of legs rather than a V-Twin but due to the R&D that has gone into this and being that it has been designed and manufactured quite simply on our doorstep, here in the UK we have been watching closely!

It was designed by motorsport specialists BERU f1systems as a side project to their main line of work: electronic monitoring systems and composites for Formula One, military, aerospace and nautical applications. They wanted to see if this technology could be applied to the bicycle and have spent the last two and a half years doing so.

Priced at a recession-busting £21,995 (US$36,000) and upwards, you can order one of these from London department store Harrods. Just in time for Christmas, perhaps?

Interested, go here Factor 001for the lowdown on this killer ride!


Remember the Battistinis showroom & phone lines are open Mon-Fri 8.30-5.30, Sat 9.00 – 1.00 and you are always more than welcome to pop in next time you are out for a blast!
