The M55 Riviera was designed to satisfy even the most demanding riders. Its rustproof titanium frame and high-end parts make this bicycle the most ideal companion for all urban cyclists. Due to its exceptional built quality and intricate design, the Riviera is virtually maintenance-free, so you can always focus on what is most important; enjoying your ride.
The state-of-the-art Swiss-made belt drive system, which replaces the traditional bicycle chain, provides a super smooth and silent ride experience, and greatly contributes to the low weight of the bicycle. With this drive system the M55 Riviera is literally unchained. The hand-made leather parts (saddle, grips & seat bag) are manufactured by Brooks England, one of the world's oldest bicycle component manufacturers with over 150 years of tradition and experience. Quality and style never age.
Similarly to the M55 Terminus, the M55 Riviera is also a limited edition electric bicycle. Each bike is numbered from 1 to 999. The Riviera is fully street-legal as it comes with an internationally certified BionX hub motor - the best of its kind. It is also one of most advanced and lightest e-bike systems currently available with only 37 lbs (17 kgs) and a top range of 65 miles (105 km) on a single charge. The entire frame and all other titanium parts on the bicycle are PVD coated after rigorous hand polishing, which makes the frame practically unscratchable. Indeed, it is the same exact coating that is used on precision tools for the medical industry to prevent any scratching. The titanium parts are laser etched, so they will never wear off. The Italian made Formula brakes are custom-made for the Riviera. These brakes are among the most advanced and strongest ones available today. As a safety feature, when the brakes are pulled the electric motor shuts off right away.
